Pizza Hut Restaurants unveils major refurbishment for Nottingham restaurant

• Nottingham receives major investment, creating 10 new jobs for the area • New design and new food puts the guest experience at the top of the menu

Pizza Hut Restaurants has unveiled a £370,000 restaurant makeover at its Nottingham Castle Meadow Hut, creating 10 new jobs for the area.

The re-opening is part of a multi-million pound nationwide redesign programme by the casual dining company. A brand new, exciting menu will also be rolled out in the revamped Hut that includes chicken wings, Kentucky style BBQ ribs and new additions to its famous warm cookie dough.

All of Pizza Hut Restaurants’ famous icons – including the Ice Cream Factory, Salad Station and Buffet – still take centre stage, but form part of the new, interactive design that includes a central preparation station offering a range of desserts including warm cookie dough, and a self-service soft drinks hub allowing guests to refill drinks at their leisure.

Restaurant Manager Piyush Tyagi said: “The Hut has been completely transformed. All of the new design elements look amazing and stand out as soon as you walk through the door. We’ve also introduced a funky new lighting scheme which looks great during the evening. The makeover has helped to create a vibrant and fun atmosphere that I’m confident our guests will love.

“In addition, we’ve launched a new menu with lots of tasty dishes to try including the new Mac ‘N’ Cheese Stuffed Crust sharing pizza, the chicken and bacon flatbread and the chocolate chunk cheesecake.”

Hut Team Member Maya Fairweather, added: “The new makeover looks incredible. It’s made such a difference to the customer experience with cool new booths that are ideal for families and groups of friends. Plus, we have some delicious new menu items. I’d definitely recommend the milkshakes – they are delicious.” 

The investment in Nottingham is part of a broader £60 million refurbishment and restructuring programme for the business, secured through private equity investment from Rutland Partners in late 2012.
