Pizza could soon be on the menu as part of plans to re-develop a former post office building.

Work is ongoing to open a pizza restaurant in part of the Old Post Office Building in Rockingham Road, Corby.

The plan is to serve pizza in the daytime and evenings, and will be based on an idea from Italy where customers have a giro which they can show to the waiting staff until they have had their fill of food.

Each table will have a card which shows red or green, allowing diners to show the green side when they are hungry so waiters will come and offer you a slice of various flavours of pizza.

People can eat as much as they like and then just show the red side when they’ve had enough and the waiting staff will stop offering.

It will be a fixed price which will also include a drink such as a house wine, soft drink or beer.

Alongside this, an application has been submitted by RIMM Developments Ltd for a licence covering the provision of live and recorded music, late night refreshment and supply of alcohol in the former Madison’s bar at the front of the building.

If approved, the developers want this to be a late bar at the weekend with a Challenge 25 policy implemented.

A spokesman for the developers behind the project said the bar will be part of the Decades brand, which already has a bar in Kettering.

It is hoped that the rest of the site of the former Post Office building, which was built in the 1940s, can be redeveloped for a small hotel with 11 rooms, offices and retail units in the future.
