Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having holidayed in Naples, we thought it would take until our next trip to experience a true Neapolitan pizza again, however after a little research and through word of mouth, we found that we had an authentic, AVPN registered pizzeria right on our doorstep and we are truly blessed to have this so locally in Beccles. From our first visit to the restaurant to our more recent takeaways, we are still truly blown away by the amazing pizzas and they really do seem to taste even better each time. The staff are very attentive and the owner and chef are really welcoming and cordial, making for a great experience with a good atmosphere. We could not recommend Oakfired highly enough!

Visited this place for the first time this evening after having recently moved to the area. We had a pizza each (hot chicken and seafood) both were absolutely fantastic and cooked fresh in an open stone baked oven. Whole meal was throughly enjoyed, including the drinks and dessert as well as the fantastic service we received from the polite and friendly waitress. 10/10 will definitely be visiting again soon.

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and were very grateful they did. We had a midweek lunchtime visit so it was quiet, but we later learnt that actually they should have been closed so we were lucky to get this reservation. We ordered 2 portions of the dough balls, which on serving we realised we had ordered 1 portion too many! Be warned these dough balls are HUGE, delicious but HUGE! So we took 1 portion home for later. We ordered the American and the Halo Pollo pizzas which I can honestly say were two of the best pizzas I've ever had. Fresh, hot, great toppings and the base was light and fluffy. I love pizza and would highly recommend this restaurant. If we lived local we would be regular visitors for sure. After our meal, and being the only ones left in the restaurant, we had a really lovely chat with the owner about his interesting career and a joint love of dogs. Excellent pizza and great all round service. Would highly recommend a visit.

First time eating here today and doubt I'll be wasting my money here again. Thought food was ok but agree with other reviewers that the toppings are very much on the stingy side. However what tipped the scales for me was we had a table booked for 6:45pm. We had our starters and main but declined on the dessert, glad I did as by 8pm we were asked to vacate the table as they had somebody waiting at the bar for our table. What would they of done had I decided to have dessert, ask me to eat that at the bar? We were a party of 4 and I believe that they should have allowed more time for our booking and not be so greedy. You get more time at fast food restaurants!

Hello Simon I have tried to contact you privately and I am sorry you felt rushed when you came for dinner on Saturday night. I have fully investigated your review. You were a party of four and you were booked at 6.45pm and you would of seen we were extremely busy in fact we were fully booked until after 9pm. You had olives, and a portion of dough balls to start and the two pizza and bottle wine offer and a Neapolitan Margherita which you shared and some soft drinks . You choose not to have dessert. I understand you requested your bill and had paid at 7.40pm 55 minutes later, leaving a gratuity. Twenty minutes later we politely asked if you would move into the bar area at 8.00pm I am sorry you felt rushed. We understand that you would have like to sit at the table longer from your response. However with popularity of our offer we were only trying to keep the restaurant running smoothly for all our guests. You may think we are “greedy” but your spend per head was £10.90 we like to think this is very good value. We are a small independent restaurant and as you have mentioned our numerous reviews also make us the No1 Italian Restaurant, No1Pizza in Suffolk and No1 Restaurant in Beccles. We currently running our January offer £19.99 which has proven to be very popular. Far from being greedy we are offering two excellent value and authentic, accredited Neapolitan pizzas. Along with DOCG Barbera Italian wine. Our fresh pizza toppings are not piled high but compliment each other and in keeping with our style of pizza. Additional toppings can be added when requested they will be charged. I very sorry you won’t be returning.

We thoroughly enjoyed our takeaway pizzas from Oakfired this evening. The whole system of having a collection slot pre-booked worked brilliantly, as our pizzas were still nice and hot when we got home. Having pizzas that are this good available to us is a real treat during lockdown, we’ll be back again next week!

We had takeaway pizzas from Oakfired as a family for my birthday meal. The pizzas were delicious as always (we had the goats cheese and the oakies), and they were more than happy to add an extra topping to the pizza I got. The takeaway service is very good, with safe pick-up, and the pizzas were nice and hot when we got them home. Would definitely recommend!

Genuinely one of the best pizza venues I've been to in the UK! Went with a large group, very pleased with the group sharing menu. The restaurant brought out some huge sharing pizzas as part of this, and even chucked in a couple more on the house which made for a great experience. Everyone was pleasantly full! Top quality food and service, good value considering this too. Looking forward to coming back in the future!

Having eaten here many times and been impressed with the food, service and environment I have written positive reviews. However, this review is time and context dependant. We are all going through difficult times and this restaurant is doing everything it can to keep us safe whilst maintaining a positive dining experience. Calm, considered direction, clear rules, adequate but unobtrusive screening and staff masking. The experience felt very ‘normal’ but very safe. Well done Oak Fired!

What a fantastic experience. Beautiful Pizza that clearly has been made with passion. All five Pizzas where sublime, great recommendations by the owners that didn't disappoint. Fresh ingredients made our experience a taste sensation. Extremely helpful staff that have made ordering and collecting a takeaway in these difficult times stress and worry free. You must try.

We had a very nice evening meal here, the pizza was great, relaxing setting outdoors, and all felt comfortable and safe with social distancing. Would highly recommend. Within a short walk of Beccles town centre, and close to the river. Very friendly staff and good beer.

Party of 7 having family night out. What a great selection- we could all have picked 2 or 3 dishes from the menu without much thought (great excuse for a return visit) Staff were friendly and very helpful and food was really tasty, felt authentic and just the perfect portion size. Decent drink selection - both soft and alcoholic. Make sure to save room for desserts too!!

Food was excellent and we tried it all salads, pizzas, pasta, breads and desserts. The pizza bases were light and delicious. The service was also excellent. Very impressed with the adjustments they had made for the covid 19 pandemic Great set of instructions on the menu to keep guests safe.

We ate here one night on our Broads holiday when we were moored up in Beccles. This is essentially a pizza restaurant, but there are some alternatives on the menu, and other options for starters. I am not usually a pizza eater, but we had a good meal here. It definitely has an Italian air about it, and I have to say - although no expert - the pizza was very good. I had the Arancini (fried rice balls) to start, and my wife had the Capra salad – which was enormous. Both were very good. I then had the Frutti di Mare pizza (excellent as I said) and my wife had the porcini mushroom tagliatelli – again big, but with too much pasta and not enough mushroom for her liking (she is a small eater). All four dishes tasted excellent though, and when the pasta turned out to be not quite hot enough it was put back in the pan and heated up rather than microwaved, which impressed us both. I finished up with the crumble sundae which proved – again – that my eyes can be bigger than my stomach. But it was delicious. A good restaurant if you want a really tasty pizza.

We had 3 pizzas on Friday night from Oakfired and there were delicious. I’m always impressed with the food from here and were it not for lockdown, we’d have had far more than only 2 takeaways from them in the past few months! I find their pizzas really authentic and far nicer than any of the known chain restaurants. The ingredients are fresh, the portions are spot on and they can cater for gluten free. I love the fact that they are local to us too. I would have posted a picture, however the food was too irresistible and was eaten before we got chance.
