The Oak W12 Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Lovely venue and friendly staff. Pizzas all wrong - so much topping that almost inedible."
Harden's survey result
“Excellent pizzas” and a vibey interior contribute to the impressive magnetism of this appealing Notting Hill pub-conversion. It has a similar (but bigger and more “comfy”) Shepherd’s Bush sibling, near the bottom of the Askew Road.
“Delicious, light, crispy pizza” in a “retired pub” remains a “winning formula”, both at the “lovely, cosy and very atmospheric” Notting Hill haunt, and its sizeable and “relaxing” Shepherd’s Bush follow-up.
“Perfect crispy-based pizza” – “so light that normal pizza-associated guilt is forgotten” – as usual wins high praise for this pub-conversion duo. The newish Shepherd’s Bush branch is “very comfy, with a large bar”, while the very “buzzy” original is a Notting Hill classic for “a fun night out”.
There’s something so “cool” about the “really buzzing” style of these “transformed old boozers” in Bayswater and Shepherd’s Bush, which serve “scrumptious”, “thin and crispy” pizza – “some of the finest in town!” Top Tip – the upstairs bar in W2 is “a real gem”.
