We cook up awesome pizza in a traditional wood oven, overlooking the sea on Boscombe Beach.

You can get delicious wood-fired food in two simple ways:

  1. Order online. We can deliver all around Bournemouth using Deliveroo to bring the love to you. Just pop in your postcode to see if we can deliver, straight to your door, from The Wood Oven.
  2. Eat with us. Come and see us at Urban Reef in Boscombe, and order food to your table to enjoy whilst over-looking the sea.


The Wood Oven is part of the Urban Guild, a family owned small group of hospitality venues in Bournemouth founded by Mark Cribb.  You can learn more about Mark, the business and it’s other venues here www.urbanguild.co.uk


Do You Have Any Questions?

Can you deliver?

Delivery is available from 5pm until 10pm Monday to Friday and 12noon to 10pm at weekends. We are using Deliveroo to bring the love direct to you. You can order using the Deliveroo app or online.

Can we now enjoy pizza at Urban Reef?

You can enjoy Wood Oven dishes in the ground floor bar at Urban Reef after 6pm.  You can not order pizza in the daytime at Urban Reef or in the first floor restaurant during the evening.  The Urban Reef has a brigade of 15 chefs creating awesome seasonal a la carte dishes at the Urban Reef and has no plans to turn into a Pizza Restaurant.  The Wood Oven is for takeaway and evening bar snacks only.  Hope that makes sense :).

When are you open?
 Monday to Friday 5pm to 10pm
Saturday & Suday 12 noon to 10pm
Do you take bookings?

In short no.  We don’t have any inside space.  We do have a deck you can use, but it is pretty small and operates on a first come first served basis.  We can help out with a party or a booking for a heap of pizzas at the same time for you to take home or enjoy on the beach.  Just get in touch.

Our wood-fired menu is also available from Urban Reef in the evenings from 6pm.

Do you sell gluten free?

We have a number of cakes and snacks that are available directly at the counter that are gluten free, baked by our very own special baker ‘Kay’.  We also now offer a gluten free base, however, due to our operating environment as an artisan producer it is going to be hard to 100% guarantee full gluten free…a little flour on the bottom of the oven is highly possible, but we’ll do our best.

Can I change my pizza toppings?

Yes! If you wish to tweak pizza toppings, please just pop the info in the comments box when ordering with Deliveroo.
