‘Thanks to those eating with us for early dinner for your patience’

A pizza restaurant at the bottom of Park Street has been forced to close this weekend after an extraction fan ‘blew up’ yesterday evening (December 9). The incident at Pizzarova happened ‘mid service’, according to a spokesperson for the company, which also has restaurants in North Street, Gloucester Road and Wapping Wharf.

Fire crews were called to the restaurant at around 7pm, while diners were asked to leave the premises. People then gathered around outside while firefighters with breathing apparatus could be seen inside tackling the blaze with hose reels.

In a statement on the company’s Instagram page, a spokesperson said: “Our extraction fan sadly blew up on us tonight mid service, everyone is safe and well but we’ll be closed this weekend while we figure out which parts need replacing.

“Thanks to those eating with us for early dinner for your patience, to our team for dealing with it so calmly and for the boys in red for helping make sure everything was safe to go back in.

“We’ll post some updates on when we hope to be back open shortly but in the meantime our hours at our other locations this weekend are: North Street 12-9:30 Saturday, 12-9pm Sunday, Gloucester Road 5-9:30 Saturday, 5-9pm Sunday, Wapping wharf 5-9 Saturday.”
