Cheltenham restaurant to close
By Matt Hall | 15th November 2022
The brand, famous for its pizzas and pasta, has announced the closure of its long-established site in Cheltenham.
But all is not lost, with plans announced last month for a new Pizza Express in The Brewery Quarter on the other side of town.
The new 3,600 sq ft restaurant is set to open within the unit formally home to The Real China, next to Cupola Tower, in the south-western corner of the shopping centre.
At the time of the announcement, Nikki Kontarines, director of Martin Commercial Properties, which manages the scheme, said: "We're delighted to welcome Pizza Express to The Brewery Quarter. Their new concept fit-out looks great and fits in perfectly amongst our fantastic range of modern venues.
Helen Belli, territory manager at Pizza Express, added: "The Brewery Quarter is such a vibrant scheme and popular destination for eating out in Gloucestershire, so we're excited to be a part of it.
"Our new venue will be our most up-to-date concept; with foliage on the walls and glazing around two sides, it will be a light and airy haven - and provide the same great food as our customers know and expect. We're looking forward to welcoming our customers - old and new - to our new location in Cheltenham."
A sign outside the existing site at Belgrave House on Imperial Square reveals its closure on November 20, with the new one opening on November 25.
Pizza Express also has restaurants in Gloucester and Cirencester.
