Pizza on the Square joins the lineup!

January 15, 2024

The historic North Yorkshire town of Malton is gearing up to unveil a brand new bar, complete with casual dining, in one of its most iconic buildings. Pizza on the Square by SALT opens this spring in the grade II listed Old Town Hall building previously occupied by Stew & Oyster.

The Ossett Brewery Group behind the growing SALT brand recently acquired all Stew & Oyster sites and has been transforming them to fit their distinctive aesthetic.

Malton is often referred to as the food capital of Yorkshire thanks to its reputation as a food producer as well as its weekly and monthly market days. Pizza on the Square is expected to breathe new life into the already vibrant town, which is home to several notable pubs, bars and restaurants.

25th anniversary

News of the brand new venture comes in a year when Ossett Brewery celebrates its 25th anniversary. The group also owns a portfolio of successful pubs and bars, including Archie’s Bar & Kitchen in central Leeds, The Riverhead in Marsden, The Flowerpot in Mirfield and over 25 more incredible venues.

The bar will feature a contemporary interior design that has an upmarket feel, whilst also being cosy and casual making it an ideal space to unwind.

Pizza lovers

Pizza lovers are in good hands, this will be the brand’s first northern bar to incorporate a secret signature sourdough recipe that has gone down a storm in SALT’s two London venues (Deptford and Woolwich).

Pizza on the Square’s trademark dough is made in-house every day and proven for a minimum of 48 hours before it reaches your table.

The result is the perfect crust, loaded with the finest ingredients for your eating pleasure. The pizza menu will be complemented with a selection of Italian-style sandwiches, sides, cakes and brownies. The venue will take bookings, but walk-ins will also be welcome, along with space for private hire upon request.

Guests will be able to enjoy all of SALT’s core range,  including Jute Session IPA and their clean and crisp pale – Loom, as well as regularly rotating Guest lines. Four cask ales will be on offer, including Ossett Brewery’s very own Yorkshire Blonde and White Rat, and two rotating guest ales. Five international lagers and ciders will also be on offer. The bar team will be on hand to mix up 10 different cocktails, freshly prepared at the bar and 2 for £12 all day every day!  Along with an extensive range of international gins, spirits and artisan wines, as well as fresh coffee for those looking to get their daily caffeine fix.

Regular events at Pizza on the Square will include quiz night every Tuesday and live music on Friday and Saturday evenings from 20:30.

Jamie Lawson, the Owner and Founder of SALT said “We always ensure that there is something for everyone at any of our bars, and Pizza On The Square will be no different. We are incredibly excited to showcase our renovation to the people of Malton, with a contemporary and modern feel, Pizza On The Square will be the perfect addition to the town.

We’re incredibly proud of what we’ve done with all the recent openings, and this one is certain to be a community favourite in no time”
