PizzaExpress is a Breastfeeding Friendly Hotspot

In its search for the UK’s Breastfeeding Friendly Hotspots, Medela UK has revealed that PizzaExpress is leading the way with its family friendly approach.  Research carried out by the experts in breastfeeding, found that waiting staff, “…demonstrated a remarkable level of support for breastfeeding mothers with faultless feedback from the staff…”

Commenting on the results, Zoe Bowley, Operations Director at PizzaExpress, said, “We know that, when mums are negotiating so many new challenges, a warm welcome can make the biggest difference.”

Sioned Hilton, Medela’s Lactation Consultant, added, “We are often asked for tips when breastfeeding out and about and, although many women are quite rightly proud and confident when feeding their baby, others do feel self-conscious. It is for this reason we decided to find the most welcoming places for breastfeeding mums, and commend PizzaExpress and its team members on such a family friendly approach.”

Summer specials now on the menu!

It’s the time of year where you wake up in the morning and it could be raining/sunny/blazing hot/freezing cold/cloudy. Yes, the British summer is here! And we have two new dishes and a very summery drink now on the menu….

1054x512

Proscuitto Fichi: created by Tomas Jurkiewski, a pizzaiolo from PizzaExpress’ Victoria Square restaurant in Belfast.
His elegant dish is served on a thin and crispy Romana base with creamy béchamel sauce, and topped with mozzarella and grated Gran Milano. Fresh out of the oven, it’s topped with rocket and perfectly ripened figs, marinated in balsamic vinegar, which beautifully complement delicate slices of prosciutto crudo. A sprinkle of fresh parsley, shavings of Gran Milano, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and fresh basil finish the dish.

FICHI FRESCA 1054x512

The judges, who selected Tomas’ pizza as part of an internal competition, liked the combination of figs and prosciutto so much, that a salad version of the dish has also been created.  The Fichi Fresci uses the same, delicious combination of prosciutto crudo and fresh figs, marinated in balsamic vinegar.  They are placed on a bed of seasonal leaves with red onion, creamy buffalo mozzarella, basil, parsley, pine kernels and a drizzle of PizzaExpress’ Honey & Mustard Dressing.  The salad is served with a portion our Dough Balls.

1054x512

And finally, Pimms! The taste of summer.

We love you mums!

PizzaExpress-mums-love-us

We always knew that mums know best, and now the experts at Mumsnet have proved us right. We’ve been awarded a Mumsnet Gold badge for our family-friendly service, atmosphere and menu – the mums’ group’s highest accolade. And we’ve won the award just in time for Easter, the perfect time to join us for a lovely family pizza feast.

Impressing these in-the-know mums is no mean feat, of course. They visited us undercover with their little ones, put our family-friendly facilities to the test and delved into our kids’ menu, all in the name of research. And now the results are in.

We’re delighted that mums found PizzaExpress friendly and helpful when visiting us with children. They said that our team made them feel very welcome, as well as providing any extra things that they needed to make their visit comfortable.

Join us for the Easter holidays

Our Piccolo kids’ menu received a big Mumsnet thumbs-up, too. Created specially for little ones, we teamed up with the Children’s Food Trust to make it healthier, as well as tasty. The resulting, delicious menu has less salt, fat and calories, includes gluten-free dishes and options for children with nut allergies. We’ve also launched ‘Create Your Own’, so that children can choose more, less or none of any ingredient – fun for kids, and simpler for parents. Plus as well as tasting great, our Piccolo menu was rated good value for money.

It’s also the little PizzaExpress details that make a difference, such as kids being able to watch our pizzaiolos making pizza in the kitchen, having enough space for buggies, and making an effort to provide parents with the bill quickly so that you can get on your way. Plus our pack of Piccolo goodies and colouring pencils was a hit with grown-ups and little ones alike.

So thank you, Mumsnet! Look out for our Mumsnet Family Friendly Gold badge next time you pop in to see us – and we hope to see you for a post-Easter egg hunt feast.
