Latest restaurant to open at Dolphin Square
A stylish new PizzaExpress restaurant has opened in Weston-super-Mare’s Dolphin Square, bringing a refreshing mixture of classic design with a modern twist to the heart of the town centre. The new opening will bring 30 additional jobs to the local economy.
The 127-seater restaurant, which draws heavy inspiration from the nearby pier and beach, boasts striped fabric chairs and banquette seating, studded lighting above the Pizzaiola kitchen area and timber beach hut frames and booth seating which provide private dining spaces.
Restaurant Manager, Kirsty Sims, said: “I am incredibly excited to be bringing the nation’s best-loved pizza to Weston-super-Mare and to be at the helm of such a great team.”
Fascinating artwork portrays vintage seaside posters, postcards and photos, and there is an intriguing high-level rope feature that zig zags across the ceiling. Birch ply and grey stained timber have been used in the panelling and flooring. There is also external seating in the mall at the front of the restaurant.
