Pay What You Feel At Zizzi As It Reopens Its Doors In Taunton


Stunning newly refurbished restaurant in historic Tudor school house building with local design accents.

Customers invited to dine and donate that day with all proceeds going to local charity Love Musgrove .

Zizzi Taunton is delighted to have reopened its doors after extensive refurbishment work.

Completely transforming the stunning Tudor school house building on Magdalene Square, the restaurant has been designed to keep the original features in-tact and pay respect to the building’s heritage - including the high vaulted ceilings and arched windows, whilst adding in some new Zizzi design touches – including a mural inspired by the River Tone which winds its way through the feature wall mural. The restaurant décor has also been inspired by its past as a school, with features such as hand-written blackboards.

To celebrate the reopening of the restaurant, Zizzi is hosting a ‘pay as you feel’ afternoon on Saturday 3rd August from 2pm – 5.30pm. Diners will have the chance to try dishes from the new summer menu and pay what they feel the food is worth – with all proceeds being donated to local charity Love Musgrove.

Love Musgrove is the official charity of Musgrove Park Hospital. The charity aims to improve the experience of patients by funding equipment, services and staff training beyond the remit of the NHS.

Richie Collins, Restaurant Manager at Zizzi Taunton said:

“We could not be happier with the refurbishment of our stunning restaurant. The Tudor House setting is something really unique and we’ve enhanced the building’s original features as well as adding in some local touches to the décor.

“We’re also proud to be supporting Love Musgrove, who do incredibly important work with the hospital on the 3rd August with our exclusive pay as you feel evening. We hope to see lots of the community coming back into the  for a brilliant evening.”

Zoe Steer, Head of Fundraising at Love Musgrove says:

“We’re delighted that Zizzi is reopening its doors and supporting Love Musgrove with the pay as you feel evening. The money raised from the event will support the refurbishment of our maternity unit, which includes creating a space dedicated to supporting women who have high dependency needs during birth and an expansion of our antenatal clinic.”

The newly designed space is ideal for special occasions and can cater for large groups of any size; from birthdays and anniversaries, to engagement celebrations and even hen parties.

Zizzi Taunton seats 184 and employs 26 local people.
