Square Meal Review of The Oak ?

Originally a boozer, The Oak now plies its trade as a rustic Italian osteria complete with scrubbed wooden tables & a wood-fired pizza oven. Kick off with vitello tonnato, seared squid or toasted bruschetta piled with creamy burrata before tackling an authentic thin-crust pizza, described by one reader as ‘probably the best in London’. If you’re looking for a sophisticated topping try char-grilled zucchini, salted ricotta & truffle oil, otherwise satisfy any carnivorous cravings with Tuscan pork sausage & porcini. There are also a few please-all mains ranging from calf’s liver with ratte potatoes & butternut squash to seared tuna with wild rocket & salsa verde. The no-bookings policy can irritate, but you can always head upstairs for ice-cold martinis & dinky cicchetti nibbles while waiting for a table. Service receives praise.
