The Oak W12

There's grandeur to this popular Goldhawk Road pub and dining room – it's a handsome Victorian building rustic home to a mismatch of industrial bits and bobs, Italian antiques and shabby chic. There's a Mediterranean slant to the food.

That means a menu ranging from cicchetti such as parma ham croquettes, sauteed chorizo with fennel seeds and lemon, and grilled beef tagliata with salsa verde to mains of slow-cooked rabbit ragu with homemade pappardelle, clams and mussel fettuccini and pan-fried sea bream fillet with romesco, new potatoes, parsley, capers and pancetta.

A wood-fired oven knocks out authentic looking pizza, too.

I just can't understand the lack of love by other reviewers for this great pizza place in W12. Great cocktails and a decent wine list too. I've never had a bad night at the Oak, always had great food and service. Worth seeking out because it's WAY above your average pizza.

Write a review...Fantastic Pizza - the new black one with bamboo charcoal is awesome. Great food and very nice vibe. They do also know how to make a mean drink here too. Awesome West London Pizza. Well worth a visit.

Best Pizza in London! Loved the Contadina, a must have at The Oak W12!

I highly recommend the crab & prown croquettes too

Very good wine selection and nice staff.

Not easy to find this quality for pizza in London.


Pizza and a pint? What more do you need in a pub? A nice cosy atmosphere (more so at night), but sometimes a little overrun with families so not the best for a quiet pint (the back room away from the main bar is my preference). The upstairs bathrooms are also nicely decorated.

I went soon after it opened. Overpriced for its location. Pizza was tasty but not amazing. If you zip down to Franca Manca in Chiswick the pizza is better and 2/3rds of the price.
