Situated pretty much opposite Kennington tube station this is a large venue with bar area on right of entrance and restaurant featuring Thai food on the left. Decent range of Oakham beers in good nick and a few bottles as well. Do rotate the range and have the new beers too. If youíre an Oakham fan and live in London itís worth a look. Food was pretty good too.

Nicely appointed restaurant that also has a pretty decent selection of Oakham beers. On my visit there were 8 Oakham ales to choose from. The condition of my Citra wasnít perfect, but the other beers were fine. Kernel was available in the fridges too. The foodís pretty excellent pan-Asian fare. Prices for the foodís a bit steep, but the qualityís solid. The service was attentive, but Iíd expect nothing less considering I was one of only three people in the establishment. Overall, this is a good place that would do well in a location that actually gets foot traffic. If Oaka fails, itíll be entirely down to its questionable location.

Oaka is a cross between a restaurant serving pan-Asian food and bar with nine or ten Oakham Ales on draught. It had been open less than a week when we visited and still had a very new feel to it. Itís a stylish place, nicely fitted out, with a brass plate from the bottom of a mash tun on the floor as you enter. I asked about the taps high on one wall. They were trickling water into a silver trough and, for some reason, reminded me of the Burton Union system but apparently theyíre something to do with feng shui. I hope this place does well. The beers were tasty and in good condition and the staff were very friendly (although, as Colin says below, they didnít have much to do as the place was more or less empty when we visited). (Visited 19 March 2013).

Visited early on Tuesday evening on the 19/03/13 a few weeks after opening. Apart from Chris, Ruth and myself there was one other punter in the 30 or 40 minutes we spent here, despite the time approaching 6pm when we left! The place is about 70% restaurant (pan asian cuisine) and 30% bar. We stood by the bar while we drank. Nice decor, modern, smart in appearance, mixture of soft and hard chairs/stools. There is a flattened out mash tun on the floor as you enter. The only natural light comes from the frontage. The girl serving us didnít seem to know too much about the beers. 10 cask lines dispensing Oakham beers (9 different ones on this visit). There are also a couple of keg taps not offering Oakham beers, I didnít take too much notice but did make a note that Camden Hells was on tap to keep the lager crowd happy. I had 2 Oakham beers from cask, both fine but the condition of the Atilla was perhaps not the best. As we left at 6ish, the other punter who weíd been chatting to had also gone thus leaving zero customers! I do worry about them being able to maintain 10 different cask lines and on this showing Iíd expect a reduction in choice in due course, ballsy effort to go in with 10 though - all sticks a blazing! Overall - nice venue, didnít see any food as there was no one there, hopefully it will pick up. Iíll certainly head back here but fully expect to see less beers on offer - but Iíd like to be proved wrong!
