Charles Wells has confirmed it is to open a second Pizza, Pots & Pints in Cambridge.

MCA revealed in November that the group was set to launch its fifth iteration of the brand in the city and it has now confirmed that The Carpenter’s Arms on Victoria Road will close for a full refit on 22 January and reopen at the end of March.

MCA understands that Charles Wells expects to open another site under the format by the summer.

It will complement The Salisbury Arms, on Tenison Road, which opened in 2015.

Operations director Benjamin Smith said: “Cambridge was home to our very first Pizza, Pots and Pints and has proven extremely popular, of course it made perfect sense to open another on the other side of what is our home city.

“There’s passion in everything we do at Pizza, Pots and Pints, from our freshly made artisan pizzas, cooked onsite in our wood-fired ovens, and warming terracotta pots of comfort food like mac n cheese, to bottled craft beers, pints of cask ale, and wines and spirits from across the world.”

In November, Charles Wells chief executive Justin Philllimore told MCA that he saw the scope for multiple Pizza, Pots & Pints in some large towns and cities.
