The Oaks is my local, so I'll probably be a little bias here. The last time I wrote about it was in November.

Tonight I was catching up with a great group of old school buddies, so I'm sure you can imagine there was a lot of laughing, stories.....and drinks. The Oaks is a relaxed place, it attracts a diverse crowd and is unpretentious.

There are several different bars to choose from and dining experiences. As it was raining outside we decided to meet in the Bistro. It was not overly crowded so it easy to order drinks and when we were ready order pizzas and salads. The Oaks offers a range of gourmet pizzas and we ordered a Thai Chicken and a Seafood to share between three of us. The others opted for the salad bar where you can pile your plate high for a reasonable price.

Our pizzas arrived at the table and looked fresh and delicious. The only downside was they weren't cut through so trying to take a slice was a challenge. The toppings, however, were great - the Thai Chicken was topped high with sprouts, shredded carrots and a mildly spicy sauce. The Seafood looked impressive with mussels and prawns and a decent tomato base. It didn't take us long to polish these off.

There were plenty of pots of mussels coming out of the kitchen and the self-cook BBQ was in overdrive. The staff are good and make a point of clearing your glasses and plates at regular intervals. It's very relaxed and we sat there for hours having a good old catch up.
