user reviews of the Oakwood, Glossop

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

The owners here are seriously passionate about beers, wines, spirits and cocktails. Beers on 28th May 2017 were Robinsons Dizzy Blonde, Titanic White Star and two from the Beartown brewery in Congleton, Man up and my favourite, a top notch Peach flavoured ale called Peach Melbear. The latter is seriously recommended and among the best I have tried (Even up there with my number one Cleopatra from the Derventio Brewery. Chic and trendy, but in a good pub way!

An impressive building on a corner on the main through-fare, The Oakwood catches the eye and oozes the charm of bygone days. The Front and side is nearly all floor to ceiling window, with traditional lamps hanging down on the inside. I don’t know the history of this place, but believe it has recently had a make-over, giving the interior a real period feel. You almost feel at times you are in a friend’s house than a pub. Now the important bit; the beer is excellent both in choice and quality, the staff polite and the whole pub friendly and welcoming. Robinsons Double Hop, Unicorn and the excellent Dizzy Blonde, along with there White label porter, with a rich, malty taste @ ABV 5.0%, along with many craft lagers, inc. Blue Moon. Give it a go...

Has had a heavy makeover in fairly minimalist style. Nonetheless good separate drinking areas, comfortable and Robinson's ales - including the tasty stout - in fine condition. 8/10.

Called in the Oakwood last night, the first chance since the pub was given a full on makeover. The beers from Robinsons are still on good form, especially the double Hop. However, the pub has gone for the trendy wine bar look - with slate tiles and textured wallpaper. It was rammed so must be doing something right!

Was closed for refurbishment late in 2014. Re-opened with an Olde Americee look seemingly targeted at the types who would otherwise traipse to Mcr city centre.

Report from Glossop Pub Crawl on 03.05.2014: Three Robinsons beers were on offer: Double Hop, Dizzy Blonde and Hoptimus Prime - all of which were excellent. The pub was remodelled into a more café style a few years ago, which lends a nice atmosphere and relaxed feel.
Great stuff and well recommended. 8/10.

Classic range of robinsons beer and the best pub food in Glossop.

Good Robinsons beer, interesting bottled beers and home made burgers. Good location right on the high street.

Started our pub crawl of the evening here and enjoyed one of their excellent home made beef burgers and "real" fries. Robinsons beer was of good quality and the whole place has a very traditional feel to it.

Seem to be doing more of the Robinson specials that they brew. Very friendly staff and nice atmosphere with outside seating area covered with coloured sails.
Their range of home made burgers are great and interesting to say the least; The latest has been an Elvis Burger, 1lb of beef, with deep fried battered banana and peanut butter toastie, onion rings, bacon, maple syrup, real fries and salad, apparently several thousand calories. Think only one person has finished it!!

One of the best pubs in Glossop, the only downside for me is it's Robinsons, which is always on top form but not to my liking, nevertheless the beer is well kept and top quality.
Menu has changed recently, now offer a fantastic range of beef burgers plus other lighter dishes.

Superb, friendly pub with a great atmosphere and great tapas made on the premises out of quality ingredients and good value. Bottled and draft cider. They have band etc on upstairs, (though I've yet to go). Well worth a visit.

8 of us came here last night, Robinsons is not my favourite beer, but it was in top condition here. The Tapas were superb and excellent value and the atmosphere brilliant.

The Oakwood has changed it focus since my last review (May2009). Three Robinsons beers were on offer: Unicorn, Double Hop and Dizzy Blonde. All were sampled and were judged to be excellent. Very Friendly staff, and the place has a nice vibe.

Came here on Friday 13th, Looks more like a restaurant than a pub, Friendly staff, only one ale on (Cumbria Way) and Stowford Press cider. Nice atoms, Toilets very clean. Overall a nice pub.

Nice cask ale on tap tonight, however we were in the back room and it was like being an extra in an episode of the Inbetweeners (with a hint of Shameless). Real open fire was a great touch

New management have recently started putting on some very interesting alternative bands/dj's and art exhibitions so from that point of view the 'new' Oakwood is a promising addition to the local music scene.

It looks like the owners are putting the effort in however the pub looks like a student squat from the outside. it has potential but really could do with a bit of a clean up downstairs- the carpet in the entrance hall is nasty and the dead plants in the window don't help either.

The Oakwood is a no-frills basic boozer, with the emphasis is on chat in the large main room. A single real ale, Robinsons Unicorn bitter, is served from hand pump � and is a very well kept pint indeed. The pies are good value when you can get them (two for a pound). This pub is located on the main road running through the centre of Glossop, a few moments walk down from the train station. All in all a genuine boozers pub, so why not give it a go and see what you think.

Hmm... hard to say really. I've given it a 6/10 though it depends what you're after. Not a real ale pub. Located right in the middle of Glossop, but the nearby Corner Cupboard is a better bet.
