user reviews of All Bar One, Broadgate

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

As usual for an ABO the bar staff are also waiters, cleaners and washer uppers meaning that there is never anyone serving the drinks. On this visit I have to admit that the barmaid did drop what she was doing and serve me quite quickly, but this place is still off of my radar for a beer in the area.

London Pride served ice cold. Run out of Guinness every week. Some lagers taste decidedly dodgy. Need more bar staff on a Friday afternoon/evening. They do some table service which is welcome. Let's face it, it's convenient for the hordes who work nearby, which is why it has no reason to pull its socks up, so it won't.

Well it's not getting any better - the food is still ok but as a pub it's appalling - semi trained bar monkeys trying to extract tips from the already bled white punters

If this is the future of the British pub industry then all I can say is that whichever giant brewery or pub chain that owns this place is overdue for a good kicking

Well this place used to be good. Not been in in a while. What happened? Where is are favourite flame haired manageress? Where have all the good staff gone? Was appalled at the service today. Waited nearly forty minutes for my food and never got an apology. Sorry to see the red head has moved on to pastures new. If i could find out, that's where I'd be going for lunch in future!! Certainly won't be going to All Bar One again!

Lunch in here is ok but the drinks and soulless atmosphere are typical AB1 and the barman have that effing annoying habit of giving you change in a little silver tray

I have just noticed that Mr Lash has used 'no,no,thrice no'. I, too have used this for AB1 in Canary Wharf today. Appologies MrLash, it is not an instance of plagiarism. I tend not to write comments as i visit pubs, but instead input in bulk. hence todays multiple entries. Anyway onto the review...

It doesn't get much worse than this place. Appalling, I don't care what the beer tastes like.

Wow! I didn't think I liked All Bar One!! But this one is different! The manageress, a feisty red head, creates an atmosphere all of her own. She makes everyone feel welcome and dare I say it a little bit special. Sounds corny I know but she has a great way with people. Not to take way from the rest of the bar. All the staff are friendly and obviously working hard. Beer range was great, and the food far better than you expect from All Bar One!! Even the music didn't seem as crap. What can I say? I loved it!!

Very confusing this place. You would think that anyone who was willing to pay the prices for the dubious pleasure of drinking in here must be in receipt of multi-million pound bonuses and have money to burn, but looking at the inflated tie knots and extravagant quiffs of the back office types around the place this is clearly not the case. Maybe they just had their taste glands removed at birth. The 'beer' (I wince as I type that) is the typical sodastream pap to be found in any ABO/P&P/and so on. The atmosphere is eerily similar to that to be found in a provincial airport departure lounge.. No, no, and thrice no.

I can't understand why anyone would go to a chain pub like this...

ming can be forgiven because she is probably female and foreign.

this is a great place, this actual one hasnt been refurbed yet but is still a fantastic place to eat/drink with mates. i usualy go to the one just up the road on finsbury pav/chiswell st. ABO is one of the best chains around!!
