Thwaites opt for Gozney Ovens to support pizza concept

Wednesday 19th April 2017

Director of Pub Operations and Brewing at Thwaites, Andrew Buchanan said, “Now that work is completed it looks fantastic – the pizza oven is very much a centrepiece that can be seen from around the pub and we think that’s going to be a great addition to its menu.”

Thwaites began as a brewery back in 1807 and since then have expanded alongside their subsidiary company, Shire Hotels, to open many pubs and hotels, mainly in the North of England but with plans to expand further South.

The Boot and Shoe Lancaster, which was originally a coaching inn, underwent a £1 million refurbishment towards the end of 2016. The exciting redevelopment included a new look bar, extended dining area and extensive landscaping with the focal point of the refurbishment being their Gozney Oven.

After extensive testing in Gozney Ovens’ test kitchen and showroom, Thwaites opted for a Napoli 1250 to keep up with the busy demand at The Boot and Shoe, as well as to make an attractive centrepiece. With each Gozney oven having unprecedented levels of insulation and minimal heat loss, they can be installed in difficult to reach locations and moved to position once built. This was imperative for The Boot and Shoe as they had a tight space in which to position the oven.

Gozney Ovens are excited to support and supply pizza ovens for other upcoming Thwaites sites that will be opting for a pizza offering.
