There are two things we like at the New Continental Hotel. One is History & Herritage and Two is Money Off! Combine them and what do you have:
The History of PIZZA & £5 OFF!
Did You Know..?
Pizza is one of the world’s most popular dishes. It is enjoyed by people of all ages and on all occasions. Talking to a member of staff at the New Continental Hotel, they even told us that at a friends wedding, for the wedding breakfast, they had Pizza!
So, it goes as no surprise that with this popular dish, comes much speculation as to what makes THE best pizza and the most popular topping!
In 2017 we had a pizza oven fitted in Steve’s Brasserie’s kitchen. A very welcomed new addition by all our guests, staff and dinners. We then created, after popular demand, a separate Pizza Menu. This can now be ordered as part of our Room Service offer, as a Bar Meal or in Steve’s Brasserie of an evening.
The £5.00 Off is when you dine at Steve’s Brasserie and is for every guests staying here at the hotel or at our sister company Strathmore House Apartments. There is no limit to the amount of pizzas you order and the £5.00 applied to EVERY pizza on the menu!
The History Of The Pizza…
In 1889, King Umberto I and Queen Margherita first visited a newly unified Italy and came through Naples. Legend has it that they grew bored of a constant diet of French cuisine and the queen asked to try some varieties of pizza.
A baker named Raffaele Esposito of Da Pietro Pizzeria (now known as Pizzeria Brandi) invented a pizza with red tomato sauce, white mozzarella, and green basil, to reflect the colours of Italy’s flag. Queen Margherita approved of this pizza and it soon became known as pizza Margherita!
