One meal we generally always agree on as a family is pizza. Jack especially likes pizza we get delivered compared to those we cook ourselves – and I have to agree with him. But how would he rate going out to eat pizza in a restaurant?
Well, when I told him we would be heading to Pizza HutRestaurants he did seem super excited. The following morning he was still equally excited greeting me with ‘Morning Mommy, don’t forget we are going to pizza tonight’.
Now I haven’t been to a Pizza Hut Restaurants in a while, in fact mum and I were trying to work it out and still haven’t. We have had collections from our local one but not sat in for a while. I have to admit though the pizza we collected just wasn’t overly nice. But when I head they had now started doing pasta too I was keen to try them out.
Recently we headed to Pizza Hut Restaurants located within intu Merry Hill, where we were given a £50 voucher to spend. I went along with my mum, Jack and Isla; my mum can find pizzas a bit hit and miss so probably wasn’t the best companion but thankfully it was a hit in fact we all found it a hit.
So onto our food and visit, so we visited the Pizza Hut Restaurants located in the lower mall of intu Merry Hill. It was a nice and quiet location of the shopping centre with access from outside or within the centre. We sat on a large round table which both of the kids really loved. Upon arrival our menus were already on the table as we had pre-booked so we set to choosing what to eat.
Jack knew instantly what he wanted – ‘pizza with macaroonee and pineapple please’ - that is pepperoni and pineapple to you and me. Jack had his off the bigger kids menu so he could have the two toppings which meant it also came with a side for which he chose mozzarella sticks. We got Isla cheesy pasta shapes from the smaller menu. Then it was onto mum and I, mum opted for a meat feast with a BBQ base, deep pan. Whilst I had a BBQ American deep pan, we then had an additional side of cheesy fries and onion rings.
After placing our order we were told to help ourselves to the salad bar, I’m not sure where I’d been hiding but I was unaware of the salad bar before this point. However up we headed and I was surprised to see a wide selection including fruit and savoury too – Jack loved the apples.
Shortly after our food arrived, Jack and Islas initially followed by mums and mine. All of the food was piping hot so you could tell it was made to order. Our individual pizzas were perfectly sized and not too stodgy – yum! Jack never managed to eat all of his so we were given a box to take the remainder home.
Following this was desserts, mum and I didn’t order any as the children’s both come with dessert and Isla wasn’t going to ear one. Jack therefore had Islas ice-cream and mum and I shared Jack’s waffle, although we did end up with an adults rather than child’s portion. The waffle was delicious, very soft and fluffy with a little crunch on the edges. As Jack’s was ice cream he got to go to the ice cream factory, doing his own ice-cream was one of his highlights he then topped with some sauce and toppings – child heaven.
I almost forgot our drinks – we had them right at the beginning. Normally I wouldn’t mention drinks as we always just have soft drinks nothing spectacular. However it was a highlight for Jack again, we had unlimited soft drinks and Jack opted for an orange squash with his meal – which was free on the kids menu. At Pizza Hut Restaurants you do your own squash, Jack loved putting his desired cordial in and topping with water.
The staff within the restaurant were lovely too, very friendly and courteous to all, not just us but the other customer within the restaurant too which was nice to hear around us. Ensuring we all had an enjoyable experience.
Our experience within the restaurant has certainly encouraged me to want to pay another visit. The food quality and taste was exceptional too, better than I remember from the last pizza we had from there.
