Starry new look for Colchester PizzaExpress

PizzaExpress is celebrating the launch of its exciting new-look restaurant in Colchester in August. Located off the High Street, behind the Town Hall, this cosy and friendly restaurant has been refurbished with an interior décor paying tribute to English poets and novelists Jane and Ann Taylor, who wrote the words to “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” in Colchester in 1806.

Each PizzaExpress restaurant is individually designed – often using well known places, people or historical events from the area as the basis. The artwork displayed at Colchester is inspired by the nursery rhyme which is known across the world, though its authorship is generally forgotten. A bold and geometric star arrangement has been applied to black and white canvases and striking patterned screens reflecting the lyrics of the poem.

Manager, Chris Oakenfull, said, “We have a friendly and enthusiastic team who are looking forward to welcoming everyone to our beautifully refurbished restaurant over a delicious pizza.”

PizzaExpress has been dishing up fresh, handmade pizza to Colchester since 1994. Its latest menu boasts classic Italian style and fashionable flavours as well as a wider range of low-calorie Leggera dishes which contain fewer than 500 calories. There are 10 new dishes including four new gluten-free options and a cheese-free pizza that is suitable for vegans. A delicious range of seasonal treats include a Leggera Summer Salad at just 315 calories; two summery desserts – a Strawberry and Cream Glory and Lemon and Blueberry Glory; and The Hugo – a refreshing cocktail made with Prosecco, mint leaves, elderflower and a slice of lemon over ice.

For younger pizza-lovers, PizzaExpress’ Piccolo menu is full of tasty choices including ‘Create Your Own’ pizza, and starts at just £3.50.  And for budding chefs looking to celebrate a birthday, a Pizza Making Party will see them transformed into pizzaiolos (or chefs) so they can stretch, toss and top their own pizza and play party games before sitting down to enjoy their culinary creations.  So kids don’t have all the fun, adult Pizza Making Parties can be arranged on request.

The restaurant runs free visits for local primary schools, turning the kitchens into classrooms.
