Advertised - Tuscan classic: slow-roasted pork belly in herbed red wine sauce, served with roasted new potatoes and broccoli. To the table came 70% lumpy white fat, 30% pork, 3 small florets of broccoli and 3/4 small potatoes chopped in half and swimming in gravy/fat at the bottom of the dish. My partner had a larger portion of all meat... More

Large family group made last minute choice to eat out. Staff very happy to accommodate. Lovely bright place to eat. Good menu. Food fresh and served prompt. Only concern was the "service charge" added to bill. I will always tip hood service but not the company. Would recommend but check your bill at the end.

Went in after some discussion, after my vegan daughter spotted on the menu displayed outside, written in TINY print, that vegan alternatives were available. Presented with two sided vegan menu, why, oh why, don't you display that too outside? Had a fabulous gluten free pizza (me) and vegan pizza (daughter). Lovely, attentive service, loved the lemonade taste when we sat... More

The room we were shown to was small and bare and initially I was worried but actually it turned out to be perfect. Attentive service. Good food. A really easy and nice meal for early evening Friday. I would happily go back.

The food here is good as with most Ask outlets. The problem with this one is the service is so slow and it certainly isn't service with a smile!! The waitress was not attentive in refilling drinks and you feel like you're constantly trying to get their attention for drinks and the bill etc. Probably wouldn't return to this Ask.

All ask Italian restaurants are great. I love their food and I am always happy to have a visit for lunch or dinner. We went for a lunch date around Valentine's Day and had a great meal, although there was a slight delay at the start of our meal which made it feel like the service was quite slow but... More

Took my mum for lunch. This is ok but be prepared to be hungry afterwards as the portion sizes are very poor for the cost and terrible if you are really hungry! The coffee is nice and hot and the waitress very attentive.

Me and my boyfriend come here so often it's ridiculous; the atmosphere is great, the prices are fair and the food is always amazing. I love the fact that they have a vegan menu and are quick to comply for other dietary requirements, too!

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening and enjoyed the meal. Unfortunately the first 2 desserts I ordered were not available, bit of a disappointment. The staff were friendly but the service was a bit slow.
