In all honesty I didn't receive any food to review so I can only review the service and that was appalling. We arrived just behind a family of four, we were a family of four also and we were seated, the restaurant had quite a few empty table do we felt quite reassured that we would get food before the...

Have tended to avoid this restaurant as found it rather clinical when visiting it previously.This time it seemed a bit more cosy with warm lighting and better atmosphere.A great choice of vegetarian food so hard to choose and the Melanzane was lovely and well presented and served by a very pleasant waitress.

This was my second visit to Ask in Dorking and I have very much enjoyed my experience both times. I used the online booking system which is hassle free and gives you a booking reference. Our server was very sweet, she was new to Ask and still learning the ropes but was super attentive and friendly. I ordered the pancetta... More

Went to Ask has a wedding Anniversary present. Staff where helpful but bit slow. Restaurant was quite only two couples and just two waitresses. Bit concerned when I saw the docket for our table was on top of our food waiting to be served. But food was good.

Ask Dorking is very good. The food is designed and cooked very well. I've never seen the restaurant full, but maybe that's due to the times we go to it. Service can be a little slow, but better that then being rushed out the door!. Only criticism I would have is that it can be cold in there.. But A++

Eventually they came and asked if we would like a drink. Five minutes later our other two guests arrived and again we... More

Order was taken from us in which on my pizza i ordered 3 extra toppings which is a lot but since you pay anyway shouldn't be an issue. However when food arrived instead of pepperoni my pizza had pancetta on it, minor but since I'm paying for it i would like what i ordered. Told the waitress, she apologised and... More

Celebrating my daughter's 8th birthday with seven other children we arrived at lunchtime and were warmly welcomed as we usually are when we arrive. Staff were pleasant, food was delicious and children were welcomed like old friends! Second year running we have gone there for her birthday and we will be back again soon!

Despite pre ordering our food and a otherwise quiet restaurant the service was poor. Long waits, confusion, no cutlery and a frosty waiter. The food was nice but the wait with children was not.
