We went there for lunch having read the reviews. Dreadful. Only had 7 things on the menu - one of which was not available. It was just dead and the lady behind the bar was scruffy and disinterested so we went to eat somewhere else . It may be disingenuous to say it was terrible - perhaps we were unlucky - but we wont be going back.

No food no cards cash only nothing like the old Allsorts! Need to be made aware it has new management and menus are no longer running as the previous reviews now give an incorrect information.

After reading the reviews, was looking forward to a late Saturday lunch. Arrived at 2pm, to an empty room and a cash only sign. The bored girl behind the bar told us the kitchen was closed, so we went elsewhere

This used to be the cross keys pub. It is now a really great friendly bar / cafe. It is family run and the food is very good with a decent menu selection. Also a good choice of drinks. It is maybe a little pricey than other bars in the area but the general vibe of the place by far makes up for this.

You will struggle to find a better chilli dish anywhere else. I was previously of the opinion, "why ruin a good bolognese by adding beans to it". That was until I visited Allsorts Cafe. The chili that I was presented with was without a doubt, the best chili that I have ever tasted.

I was visiting family in Newbury recently where I was introduced to the delights on offer at Allsorts. We went initially on the Friday evening and loved it so much that we returned the following day! As well as the chili, I tried a few of their other dishes which were all full of flavour and seasoned appropriately. It is evident that a lot of effort has been put into producing a really decent menu with a fantastic array of dishes available.
In addition to the great food, the service was brilliant. Everyone was very welcoming, accommodating and polite. Allsorts is light on the wallet as well offering very reasonable prices.

Combined with the relaxed and joyful family atmosphere, Allsorts is certainly worth a visit. If you're in Newbury and in need of great tasting and great value cuisine, there's no where better than Allsorts Cafe.
