The Oaks, Military Rd, Neutral Bay

The Oaks, Military Rd, Neutral Bay
Tuesday 21 August, 2007
I read this review back in June and thought I should visit The Oaks more often. I mean, it is my local and if there are single guys hanging out there all the better! So, tonight another single buddy and I decided to plonk ourselves in Nineteenthirtysix bar and have a few wines.
We arrived around 6.30pm and the outdoor beer garden was empty. It was cold, windy and there were scattered showers which drew everyone into the Nineteenthirtysix bar, Steakhouse bistro & bar and Garden Bar.
Nineteenthirtysix bar offers a mix match of brown/ beige colours, lounges, corner chairs and side tables. It's cosy and there are TV's and bench tables down one end. The website blurb states,
"The nineteenthirtysix is The Oaks new bar which is designed to have a comfortable 1936 feel, perfect for casual drinking and chit chat."
There were only two staff on in Nineteenthirtysix bar and one was in training, so it was a slow night. There are approximately 5 red/ white wines available by the glass, bottled wine, plenty of beer and cocktails and you also order food.
After a few wines we realised it was 8.30pm and we were starving. We had been chatting for hours and were completely oblivious to anyone around us. A quick look at the menus sitting on each side table and we decided on a couple of pizzas:
- Tandoori Chicken with mango chutney, herbed yoghurt, cashews and coriander
- Spicy Sausage with baby pearl onions, capsicum marmalata, caramelised onions and oregano
After ordering and paying at the bar we were handed a number to display on our table. Within 15 mins our pizzas were delivered and looked fabulous. Large slices of tandoori chicken and spicy sausage sat on top of each thin crust pizza. Each pizza was topped with plenty fresh ingredients and a mildly spicy sauce. Cut evenly into 4 large pieces we enjoyed every mouthful.
Did we meet anyone? Not tonight but we'll be back.
