The nation’s favourite pizzeria, PizzaExpress has unveiled its redesigned and relocated Berkhamsted High Street restaurant, following an extensive refurbishment.
Located a few doors’ down from the original site, which opened in 1996, the renovation took under a month to complete and is the first of PizzaExpress’ new-look restaurants to debut locally.
The re-design has been developed to reflect the original vision of founder Peter Boizot which has been PizzaExpress’ mantra since 1965 – to bring people together for good times and great pizza.
The open kitchen takes centre stage at the heart of the new restaurant, with a choice of different dining experiences inside and out for up to 110 diners.
In addition, its terrace has been developed to provide a relaxing al-fresco fining hotspot.
The restaurant’s new design incorporates the latest new safety measures that enhance guest and team protection and blend with the lively buzz of the pizzeria. These include a more physically distanced layout, hand sanitiser stations, enhanced hygiene procedures and cleaning measures, along with regular health checks of team members. The online booking service makes it easy to reserve a table, and a new digital menu and cashless payment have been introduced to assist and reassure customers.
Gaynor Hennessy at PizzaExpress Berkhamsted High Street, said: ‘We’re excited to finally showcase our new restaurant in Berkhamsted. Our design team have worked tirelessly to create a fantastic restaurant that is unlike anything else in the area; it looks fantastic and our customers and team are loving it.
‘Our customers can enjoy a wonderful experience in our new setting whilst enjoying delicious pizza and all of our menu favourites. We’re also offering a free drink with every main until 30 September, so look forward to welcoming more customers back through our doors.’
