Ask is a favourite as the dishes are always spot on. There is a huge range to choose from on the menu and everything was hot and tasty. It is quite a walk up a steep hill but worth it to work up an appetite.

On the negative side, parking was/can be an issue, and this was at 7pm on a Monday (Feb 13th) night. On the positive side, we were able to use our TASTECARD to, in effect, get 2 three course meals for the price of 1, and in so doing save £23. My starter of Stuffed baked garlic mushrooms was VERY nice,... More

I was over working late in Lewes and my wife and I decided to eat out. We chose ASK, with no idea what to expect as we were first time visitors. Immediately made to feel welcome with a taste of some home made lemonade. Had starters and main courses and we both would have been happy with each other's choices... More

Went with my boyfriend for a three course meal and drinks. We have the new croquettes and a garlic bread speciale for starters. The garlic bread was very cheesy and garlicy. I liked it. The croquettes were nice, but you only got three. Main courses, I had a spaghetti carbonara and my boyfriend had the salami calzone. Pictures attached. I... More

Slow service even though it wasn't very busy. Gluten free pizza was not cooked - sent it back but second was also soggy. Overpriced for not great quality food nor service. I'd give it a miss!!

Visited late afternoon on Christmas Eve with friends. The food is mostly good. The green olives are excellent and 2 of my friends had the pasta with a langoustine which they both raved about. My calzone was very enjoyable but - 3 were ordered - 2 being meat and the waiter had no idea which was which . This meant... More

Not that busy but food took a long time to be served. Staff very pleasant but could have done with a couple more. Tables that ordered after us got theirs first!!

We visited to celebrate a birthday and we certainly had a good time. The place was buzzing, the service prompt and friendly, the food good quality and well-presented. My Calzone was delicious and everybody else was happy with what they ordered. The desserts were particularly good. All such a change from the previous week when we visited another Italian chain...

Considering we hadn't booked we were grateful that we were able to have a large table for our party of 7 on a rainy Sunday lunchtime. Unfortunately that was when the great service ended! After waiting a little while for our order to be taken, a friendly chap came over and took our orders for our starters and drinks only.... More
