The Wood Oven / Food Review

Thursday, November 16, 2017

Sunday night we were very kindly asked to review the new menu at The Wood Oven in Boscombe, Bournemouth.

I was actually invited to a blogger event the week before but I couldn't make it, and so to save me missing out on the yummy pizza we were asked if we would like to pop on down at a time more convienient to us which was so lovely.

The Wood Oven is part of the Urban Guild which is family owned group of hospitality venues in Bournemouth with the likes of Urban Reef, Urban Beach and Urban Farm under its umbrella.

Having been to Urban Reef before and loving its beach setting and rustic vibe always being so inviting we were really looking forward to sampling the pizza's from The Wood Oven's Menu.

When you arrive you are greeted with a view of the kitchen, and the... stone oven.
I love the fact that you can see everything being made and its all so fresh.

The kitchen looks out onto a wooden bench area where I can imagine to be bustling in the summertime.

It was a bit too cold for us to eat outside so we took our seats inside the Urban Reef restaurant to choose our yummy pizza.

I opted for the 'Roasted' a veggie pizza packed with wood roasted vegetables, peppers, pine nuts, olives and pesto and OH MY..... it was delicious, the base was perfectly cooked and golden round the edges the sauce and cheese melted in the mouth and they certainly weren't shy packing on the topping.

Chris had the 'Urban Guild' which had a pulled pork and pineapple topping and he said that it was outstanding and full of flavour and we shared some chips that were arguably the nicest chunky chips 
I have had in the longest time and I'm not really a chip fan. 
But these.... well, I could of easily devoured some more.

Price wise I would say they are priced fairly at £12 for a huge pizza 
(so huge I actually had to take half home)
You would pay more than this at a chain restaurant with no the sea view.

The atmosphere is just so chilled and it was really busy, but chilled busy, a nice blend, with lots of laughter and really a busy restaurant speaks volumes doesn't it!!?

Also, an awesome thing to mention is that they can cater for customers who are Gluten Free with GF bases and brioche buns and they can even create vegan choices by swapping out the cheese etc...

Another couple other lovely touches.

1) They allow dogs and so if you have been walking along the beach with your furry friend it's nice to think that you can stop in and have bite to eat and bring the pooch along 

2) They had a games shelf, so you could take in a game of snakes and ladders while you wait for your food.
3) The do free delivery up to 4 miles for orders over £15 or more

It was just so very chilled and lovely and we will defiantly be going back, 1) Because I need some more of those chips and 2) I need to now try the 'Dorset' pizza (see menu picture - yum)

Thank you to The Wood Oven for having us, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
