Keswick’s Longest Standing Pizzeria Seeks Assistance Of Customers To Help Design The Perfect Reopening Menu

After over a year of being closed, LB’s Pizza House in Keswick is back with a vengeance, as the town’s original pizzeria once again reopened its doors on Friday 11th June with a specially designed new menu in force.

To celebrate the long-awaited reopening and create a bit of excitement on social media, the popular pizzeria which is part of Lake District Hotels Ltd took to the group’s Instagram page to ask customers each to design their own pizza which stood the chance of being featured on the new menu.

A whole range of Instagram users submitted their unique pizza suggestions, from the traditionally Italian to the outright bizarre. Once entries were collected, Lake District Hotels’ Executive Head Chef, Mark Harris, whittled down the list to 8 finalists whose designs inspired him the most.

Once the final 8 had been selected, each pizza design was pitted head-to-head against one another in a series of Instagram polls that ran on the Lake District Hotels Instagram story. Users were invited to select their favourite pizza creations over a succession of days and the pizza that came out triumphant in the votes was ‘San Marzano Tomato, Mozzarella, Nduja, Burrata, drizzle of Chilli Oil & Honey’.

The victorious pizza, entitled ‘Fan Flavour’ on LB’s new summer menu, was designed by Charlotte Watson from Sheffield. As a reward, Charlotte won 10 free pizzas to enjoy at the venue, meaning she is able to come see her creation brought to life and actually taste the tempting flavours for herself.

The restaurant which is overseen by Italian head chef, Fabio Ricchieri, serves an impressive range of traditional stone-baked pizzas inspired from the chef’s hometown of Frassinelle Polesine which is close to the city of Venice.

LB’s Pizza House located in the Kings Arms Courtyard just off Keswick’s Market Square is now open every Wednesday to Sunday from 12pm-10pm. Takeaways are also available on these days from 5pm each evening.
