We were a large group for a child's party. Our group had food ranging from salads to pasta and pizzas and all the food was delicious. The chocolate pizzas also went down very well. The manager Chris who I dealt with in advance was extremely helpful. On the day Annie was the manager and she was most friendly and looked... More

Go to this restaurant every so often because I had my first date with my boyfriend here. You never do quite know what service you are going to get but it's usually more positive than negative. There's a lovely guy who works in the winter but heads home for the summer and he is a joy. Sometimes however, catching someone's... More

Convenient for the Halls function disappointing meal. Pizza and pasta lacked flavour. Large bleak restaurant with no character. Cheerful staff but rather disorganised. Large menu but food expensive for the quality experienced..

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.
