Full list of Pizza Express restaurants set to reopen on April 12

More than 100 Pizza Express restaurants will reopen April as the business prepares to serve customers for the first time in months.

The restaurant chain shut its door to walk-in diners in January, but 118 locations will now be able to open once again.

That’s less than a third of the pizza favourite’s 370 restaurants, with Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish restaurants to be announced a later date.

Pizza Express confirmed that five of the locations to reopen will be in Hertfordshire, including in Hemel Hempstead and Harpenden.

According to the Government’s roadmap only pubs and restaurants with outdoor areas can open in Step 2 of the easing of lockdown, which is expected to happen on April 12.

On that date shops and other non-essential businesses will be allowed to reopen.

Hospitality businesses will only be able to start serving people indoors from May 17, at the earliest.

There are currently 180 Pizza Express restaurants still open for click and collect and delivery orders during the lockdown.

Zoe Bowley, Pizza Express managing director said: “We’ve really missed buzz and bustle and seeing our customers enjoying their favourite pizza.

“Our Cook At Home range and Click & Collect and Delivery services have been immensely popular during the past few months, but we can’t wait to fire up our ovens and swing open our doors again.
