We cook up awesome pizza in a traditional wood oven, overlooking the sea on Boscombe Beach & nestled in Penn Hill, Poole.
At our beach side venue, we have a small outside deck where you can enjoy our pizzas, or you can take it away and enjoy it on the sand.  We even do home delivery with our own fleet of motorised marvels for online orders within 4 miles (free for orders over £15). Right next door at Urban Reef, you can also enjoy Wood Oven food from the bar menu on the ground floor from 5pm every evening.
Or, you can pop on down to Jenkins and Sons in Penn Hill for a sit down meal, delicious British craft ales and the same beautiful, Wood Oven cooked pizzas.

Do You Have Any Questions?

Can you deliver?

Free delivery on all orders over £15 to an address within 4 miles.  You can also order online for collection at the Wood Oven. To see if you qualify for home delivery you can then enter your postcode at the top of the page to check. We are open from 5pm until 10pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 10pm at weekends. Order Now

If you’d like to order in advance for home delivery just put the delivery time information in the order notes when you checkout and we’ll bring it round at a time to suit.

Can we now enjoy pizza at Urban Reef?

Traditionally Urban Reef has run a daytime ‘cafe’ menu 9am to 5pm, an evening ‘restaurant’ menu 6pm until 11pm and an evening ‘bar snacks’ menu 6pm to 10pm.  As well as takeaway and delivery, the Wood Oven will be replacing the evening ‘bar snacks’ menu at Urban Reef.  This means after 5pm when the cafe menu finishes you can enjoy Wood Oven dishes in the ground floor bar at Urban Reef.  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
(Summer Holiday Weekdays = 12pm to 10pm)
Saturday and Sunday 9am 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.

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 or select to communicate via Facebook messenger on checkout and tell us on there.
