The doors will be reopened for guests and diners from July 31, but an al fresco dining option on Parker’s Piece will be created a week earlier.

Parker's on the Piece will be a new terrace for Parker’s Tavern that will offer gourmet pizza and a light bites menu that will open on July 24.

The new outdoor dining space with chef Tristan Welch at the helm, will be serve up a new pizza menu featuring nine seasonal pizza options, with signature sourdough base made in a traditional pizza oven including: Air dried ham, tomato and mozzarella, Home cured sardines, capers and wild garlic and asparagus, peas and mint.

There are also Wiltshire truffle and cream cheese or the lobster and garlic butter options, and the eco-friendly option is the Rubbish Cooks Pizza, which will depend on which ingredients Parker’s Tavern has left over or what ‘waste’ might be delivered to the restaurant by suppliers. A £1 donation will go to Jimmy’s Night Shelter for every Rubbish Cooks pizza sold.
