Ate here on Wednesday night. Got lucky as there was a cancellation as we hadn’t booked. Our hostess was welcoming and seemed to really enjoy her job. I forgot to ask her name. Pizzas were excellent. Ambiance is unreal. Staff are attentive and hardworking. We...will definitely return and this time we will make sure to book in advance. Congratulated the owner as I paid and this is a business that can be proud of itself.More

Could not be more pleased with how our visit to The Oratory went. We were a large family group and did not hold out much hope for getting a table as we did not have a booking but the staff were so accommodating and managed...to seat us all together. Our server Abbie was so friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. They were out of the crab pizza that day so I will definitely be back to try it next time I am down that direction.More

We visited The Oratory as a family of two adults and two children. Our table was available straight away and our order was taken quickly and pizzas were out to us even quicker. The pizzas were average, nothing to write home about so we didn't...stay for puddings. We were booked in for 6pm and the place was full of young children which didn't surprise me as families with younger children tend to dine early. I was unable to book a later table without it being too late and not fitting into our day. The pizzas were very overpriced for what they were, extremely thin based, more like a Jacobs cream cracker with the toppings thrown on. Not the same as two years ago, which was the last time we dined here and the pizzas were of a much better quality. If you want to pay over the odds for a non remarkable pizza, then this is the place and expect lots of young children upto around 7pm. Sorry The Oratory, it was nothing special.More

Great choice of pizzas and very tasty. Drinks are great too, especially I recommend the local beer McGill's. Superb set up inside the building (when guidelines can allow). Very good service, totally recommend.

I visited here with friends one evening and loved it, the setting is fabulous and the staff are extremely friendly. While the wait in line for a table was long, the service once seated was quick. The pizza is great but the drinks are a...little expensive. The hut selling ice creams, slushies and milkshakes is a nice touch for dessert.More

Yummy pizza! Outdoors dining or take away. It was Friday night so verry busy. We took away & the pizzas were delish. Thin crust, good quality mozzarella and toppings using local produce. Yummy!

Oh dear, where do I start with this one. Ok, so the positives are that the pizzas are excellent and the staff are friendly. But there is zero organisation and the place is run in what I would call calm chaos - calm because the...staff show no signs of distress; chaos because everything gets mixed up and forgotten. We waited nearly 45 minutes to get a table. Not a big deal, because the settings are nice, and we got to read the menus and order our food and drink before we sat down. We ordered the Nachos starter to share, as a Starter, and 3 pizzas for mains. We made a point of saying that we wanted the Nachos first, as we could see Nachos being served with mains at other tables. So, 45 minutes after sitting down, there was still no sign of the Nachos - an easy starter to get out to a table. I feared the worst, so I asked 2 separate waitresses if they could track them down. We finally got a bowl and as we worked our way through them, we discovered they had no japapenos. 5 minutes later we saw the people at the nexct table enquiring as to the whereabouts of their Nachos....with NO Jalapenos. We had got their order. After the Nachos were demolished, the waitress came over to clarify our pizza order - we feared that they hadn't even entered the oven at this stage (one and a half hours after sitting down). Anyway, the pizzas arrived and they were worth the (very long) wait. And guess what, so did our bowl of Nachos ! We also had a drinks order that was totally forgotten until prompted. Anyway, this place has a lot going for it, but it's not worth a 3-hour visit.More
