We often eat at Ask in Northampton prior to visiting the Royal & Derngate Theatre. Ask is ideally located and provides quick, tasty and inexpensive food to set you up for a (hopefully!) good evening at the theatre. We have never yet been let down by this particular branch of Ask but I wanted to highlight this time how well... More

We had lunch here before visiting a Matinee at the theatre. The staff were friendly enough but for some reason food took a very long time to arrive. We had ordered four pizzas, hardly complicated, you would think. There were about two dozen other customers and two busy looking chefs were visible in the kitchen apparently working away at the...

We attended a wedding reception meal and it wasn't a very good experience. Firstly the service was slow and unorganised. Some people were being served at a table and others were left waiting up to 5 minutes, unless you wanted cold food it was impossible to be polite and wait until everyone had their plate in front of them. We... More

Booked with family for my daughters 7th birthday. Visited at 6pm on a Saturday. Great service, amazing food, and the staff were really attentive to my daughter. Worth a visit.

Having been Christmas shopping in town all day we decided to head to ASK for an early and quick bite to eat before heading home. The restaurant wasn't busy on arrival but we were duly informed that despite the many empty tables they were in fact very busy. Aha! We were shown to a table upstairs. Initially the service was...

I am not sure whether we got smaller portions because I had told the waitress prior to ordering that we had a voucher? My friend ordered some sort of beef ravioli dish as a main and had a total of five ravioli on his plate. I hardly call that a meal. The risotto was undercooked and dull. Don't order the... More

I try to be very positive when I give a review but felt on this occasion something had to be said. We went here on Monday 5th December as our pre Christmas catchup with girlfriends. The food was very good but with no exaggeration the male waiter/ manager poss? came to our table 6 times to ask us if we... More

Came here on a rare weekend away together. Booked the table earlier in the week. We used some tesco vouchers so could afford to splash out a bit. Everything was really good. Food, environment and especially the service. Our waitress, despite being at the tail end of her shift was professional and engaging. We had a lovely time and it... More

Food was great but service was whatever. It looked like waitress who work there just work because they need to not because they enjoy it. In general it was ok
