Practical but funky seating arrangement with loads of different seating choices in a medium sized space.
Staff are friendly. Discounted cocktails after 5 pm Sunday to Thursday only, but we'll worth it. I haven't ever eaten there so can't vouch for the food BUT I have 'observed' others and they seemed quite happy. Great decor... Has bit of a Scandi feel to it... In an English kind of way of course.... Have fun...!!!

Had five sharing dishes and drinks with my son. Good food and good service. We enjoyed it. Relaxed environment, would recommend.

You get what you pay for just glad I don't have to pay the staff. The staff are friendly and try their best but when we ordered lunch there where only 5 other tables not busy for a city centre pub at 2.30pm. Our order took 45 mins to come and with two young kids that's too long. The food when it came looked good tasted ok but that was it nothing to write home about we have been here many times since it reopened and have been more disappointed each time.

Went with a friend for supper and drinks, were greeted with wine tasting but were told they had renovated to a wine bar, not a restaurant (looking back this almost seemed like an advance justification for how terrible the food was). We had to go to the bar whenever we wanted to order something. Drinks took ages to make. The food took a long time to be served (nachos and bruschetta doesn't take long to make!) - the quality was very poor and not worth the price paid. It tasted like it had been sat out all day / lunchtime left overs. We waited about 40 mins for the plates to be cleared. The 2 things we wanted weren't available but we weren't told that until we tried to order them (you should always be told what isn't available when you're given the menus). We shared a chocolate brownie which wasn't edible - dark, rich chocolate, over cooked but not warm, had been left standing too long, no sauce so very dry - awful! We got our bill and when paying on card were charged the wrong price (£10 more than the bill amount). We then got a full drink spilt all over us when the waitress knocked it over. No apology for the wrong amount being charged, it took a further 30 mins for someone to come over and say the bill was correct, because another drink had been ordered. We didn't have the receipt because it got soaked by the spilled drink and apparently they could no longer check this on the till. We were so ready to leave we didn't bother arguing the case. We were also told sternly that we had 5 minutes to drink up as they were closing. No music, no atmosphere, awful food, awful service. Won't be returning.

We were spoiled for choice for places to eat in Cambridge but the satay chicken starters on the menu make us choose All Bar One. They were beautifully presented but the chicken was tasteless, I'm no chef but they hadn't even been seasoned never mind marinaded ! This wouldn't have mattered if there had been enough satay sauce on the chicken but there was literally a couple of teaspoons worth over the 3 skewers. The fish and chips we had as a main course were lovely, especially the tempura batter on the fish. The fish and chips are served in a mini chip pan basket which looks nice but can make the food seem a bit greasy with everything sitting on top of each other. The waitress we had (Chloe) was lovely and really helpful but we had to wait ages on the food which was unacceptable. We didn't complain but Chloe kept us informed by saying our orders were on their way so that we knew we hadn't been forgotten about which was good of her. She made conversation with us and made us feel very welcome.
We ordered coffee with the cheesecake we ordered for desert which we wanted to enjoy together but the coffee came 5 minutes before the cake.
