Am not familiar with this restaurant chain but would not hesitate to dine here again. Two of us arrived with no appointment in the middle of half term week. Warmly greeted and shown our seat. We ordered sea bass and goats cheese salad followed by a wicked looking chocolate dessert and some sorbet. Coffee and green tea to finish. Prompt,... More

We visited the first weekend in January and it was very wet, the rest of town looked to be very quiet but Ask was heaving - good job we booked. Food and service were excellent. Lovely building. Would definitely recommend this restauarant.

Situated in a lovely building. Visited for a family lunch. Staff friendly and a good menu selection. The food was very tasty with lovely flavours and good size portions. Will visit again if in the area.

Pretty much a normal Ask chain, except in a lovely building as a plus. Normal British Italian food but they don't mess it up.

Bit slow to put this review on as we were in Abingdon Ask a couple of months ago. Family members got together from several parts of the country for my niece's 1st birthday which is of course a very special and important occasion and this location worked well for us all. The restaurant is set in the lovely market town... More

I visited the restaurant earlier this month with my family. The service was great and our food was delicious. Even though it was a busy night we received our food quickly. Overall amazing food and service would recommend this restaurant to my family and friends.

The wife and I often visit ASK for lunch and have never had a bad experience. The food is consistently cooked to a high standard. Service is always very friendly and the staff always have a smile waiting for you. The young girl who works there called Beth is very pleasant and helpful, nothing is to much trouble for her....

A friend and I had an early supper there. She had a pizza which was dry, cold and the spinach looked and tasted as if it was frozen, very unappetising. I had the chicken and mushroom risotto. It was not a risotto, basmati not arborio rice, undercooked, dry and full of black pepper. Very disappointing. Complained to the manager and... More

We arrived 15 minutes late to the restaurant, only to be told that the table had gone. They were extremely busy so this was understandable, however, they said that they would find us another table if we could wait. They then offered us a drink on the house whilst we waited. Within 5 minutes we were seated and the service... More
