Good value for money

I'm new to the area - and had walked past it a couple of times before trying it for myself. Of note, while many other local restaurants were doing just about ok, the Wood Oven was truly buzzy - with a wide range of groups and families seemingly out for a meal. It's an ok place to eat if you... read more

Very nice local eatery. Good for a quick bite with a friend, a date before the cinema or drinks or a family meal. Nice to have to have in the local area.

Ordered a take away and whilst waiting, politely asked how the gentleman was who lost his hand in the mincing machine out the back a couple of years ago. The chef got angry and started taking it out on my kebab, over-salting it and roughly slamming it on the grill and started snarling and spoke in an aggressive foreign language... More

First of all let me start by saying, this is not the restaurant for fine dining or a leisurely meal. But if you want tasty cheap quick food, then this is most definately the place! You can bring a bottle or nip across the road to the off license to grab a bottle of wine and they will charge minimal... More

All was cooked well, the chops and ribs are barely recognisable very fatty and hardly any meat on them.. They use the cheapest cuts although this is... More

I've eaten in on a couple of occasions but I mostly get a takeaway. The food is genuinely delicious. Every time I have been in whether to eat or collect a takeaway it is always packed. Service is very speedy and if you are after a quick and tasty bite, you can easily be in and out of there in... More
