In January, Exeter’s popular Pizza Stein restaurant will evolve into two distinct venues, BierKeller and PS Conscious Kitchen. Pizza Stein will close on the 2nd January and re-open in April, in a brand new restaurant-only site as PS Conscious Kitchen. The current venue will close throughout January for a refurbishment before re-opening as BierKeller Exeter.
The decision comes after the restaurant owners identified the opportunity to grow two separate brands in Exeter. It means that they are able to offer a wider variety to customers, while maintaining their personality and continuing to celebrate their core values.
BierKeller will bring to Exeter a true Bavarian beer hall featuring thick long wooden benches, a fun and friendly atmosphere and a fantastic choice of drinks served in traditional ‘steins’; 16 draught beers and ciders along with 3 cask ales and over 20 bottled beers.
PS Conscious Kitchen will continue to celebrate authentic pizzas and great quality ingredients, sticking to the true Napoli rules. The menu however will be re-designed to cater to vegans, those with a gluten intolerance and other allergies, as well as offering more sustainable options. Ultimately the restaurant will maintain Pizza Stein’s ethos of good ingredients cooked in a clean way.
Director, Paul Matthews comments:
“It’s a big change for us but we’re excited by the possibilities! We didn’t expect the popularity and diversity between the two brands so we feel that the opportunity to split and grow them should not be ignored.
We can finally offer a wider variety of food and challenge the chefs to find the best organic, sustainable ingredients to maintain the core values of the original Pizza Stein. We think this is the beginning of two bigger and better venues and another great independent offering for our city!”
Pizza Stein are encouraging customers to head to the restaurant which is located on the quay, to enjoy their last ‘true’ pizza for 3 months!’
