Had lunch here today for the first time ever. Our waiter (Kamal) made it a relaxing and pleasant experience. Good prices, good service, good food. What is there not to like? I just wish I had a wine cellar kitted out like the one behind the bar!

If you've been to an All Bar One then you know what to expect - they're all much of a muchness. If you want something unique, probably not for you, if you want mid priced food and cocktails, then you can't go too wrong. This is well located and doesn't seem to be too busy during the afternoons.

We were out shopping in Reading and as we were in the Oracle, decided to grab a bite to eat on the Riverside. All Bar One seemed the prefect place. Got a good seat upstairs in a booth. Served quickly and efficiently. My chicken burrito was lovely, but really hot (temperature) and my partners burger was great. We had a... More

Loved the breakfast that we had from here, was full of flavour, plus the service we received was out of this world, For the size of the coffee cups could have refills

Visited with family on a shopping trip to Reading, great welcome and speedy service considering it was a very busy sunny Saturday! Fillet steak sandwich on ciabatta with caramelised onion what wasn't there to like well it was great and really good sweet potato fries, 4 drinks 4 lunches £53 great value, worth every penny.

Our waiter Daniel although rushed off his feet was attentive, professional and really welcoming. He was proud to work there and it felt like this was more than a job to him. Breakfast was great. Full English and eggs and mushrooms on toast. Hot and quick service which was surprising as it was a packed Sat morning brunch. Highly recommended

I had the Katsu curry and I have to say it puts places like Wagamamas to shame! The chicken literally fell apart it was cooked so well, not overly spicy just the right amount of spices. Presentation was perfect. The bar is well presented and the staff were very good and knowledgeable about the menu and cocktails. They made a... More
