New flavour for Flemingate as Buca di Pizza opens

A new pizzeria has opened at Beverley’s Flemingate centre promising “pizza, but not as you know it”.

Offering a modern twist on the classic Italian dish, Buca di Pizza adds to the appealing array of dining options on offer at the fast-growing retail and leisure destination.

The pizzeria and bar has opened following a £350,000 fit out, creating 20 full-time and part-time jobs. The 3,200 sq ft venue features an exposed kitchen and pizza oven and can accommodate 120 covers inside and a further 45 diners outside.

The independent brand is owned by brothers Geoff and Nick Thornton and the name loosely translates as “the pizza pit”.

Adding a new dimension to pizza’s timeless appeal, Buca di Pizza takes traditional Italian classics and giving them an exciting and contemporary twist by using ingredients and flavours from around the world.

Alongside pizza classics such as the Margherita are unique offerings such as the Snake Charmer, a pizza topped with Goan coconut curry sauce, lamb koftas and onion bhajis, and the Hickory Pig pizza with smoked pulled pork, pancetta and spiced cheddar.

Often ideas for new offerings come from customers, via social media.

Geoff Thornton said: “We like to play around with ingredients and flavours to create really interesting and tasty variations and our customers respond very positively to that.

“We also offer pizza staples, but we sell more of our Buca brand pizzas than the standard options.

“We’ve got stacks of ideas for more of our speciality pizzas and we’ll soon be calling out to our customers for their ideas to expand our range even further.”

The Buca di Pizza opening is the latest in a long list of investments at Flemingate, including American-style venue FIREPIT Smokehouse & Sports Bar, which opened in July and is located next to Buca di Pizza.

Mr Thornton said Buca di Pizza’s staff were enjoying welcoming new customers, to dine or just pop in for a drink.

He said: “Flemingate is a lovely development with lots of advantages. It looks and feels great and draws people through the day and evening. It’s welcoming for shoppers, families and people looking for somewhere to eat or have a drink.

“The centre is very accessible, with a large car park and a Premier Inn hotel on site as well as Beverley train station just two minutes’ walk away. It’s also continuing to grow as a destination within the beautiful town of Beverley. It’s a great place for us to be.”

Graham Tait, Flemingate Centre Manager, said: “Buca di Pizza is another excellent addition to Flemingate and once again brings a new, exciting brand to Beverley.

“Buca di Pizza offers something very different to the usual pizzeria offering – we believe diners at Flemingate will love it.

“We’ve now got a wide variety of high-quality food and drink options, supporting our retail offer. Buca di Pizza is yet another reason for people to visit Beverley and Flemingate and spend more of their time and money in the town.”

Owned and developed by Hull-based regeneration company Wykeland Group, the Flemingate development has a host of major high street retailers, such as Debenhams, H&M and River Island, complemented by a range of high-quality independents.

Flemingate’s leisure line-up includes Parkway cinema and theatre, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Riva Lounge, Deli No.1 and Anytime Fitness.
