Place was fairly quiet as we ordered our food at 12.35. Eventually arrived at 13.20 after complaining to waiter. No explanation given or discount. Only saving grace was the food was good.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely brunch at All bar One. Our waiter Kamal was attentive and very helpful. Lovely relaxed meal. My husband recommends the Eggs Royal which he really enjoyed. We will certainly be back again.

We were greeted with a smile and the service was speedy and efficient. The atmosphere felt welcoming and homely. The food was very yummy and the smarties in a shot glass was a nice added extra.

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.
