‘The buffet is back’: Pizza Hut bring back famous buffet after being scrapped last year

Buffets in restaurants were scrapped last year after the pandemic meant Britons had to social distance and remain seated when eating food out. With rules now lifted in England, the likes of Pizza Hut have announced the return of its buffets. 

“While we’re celebrating the return of our much-loved unlimited offerings, the safety of our guests and team members remains paramount and so we ask that all our customers act responsibly when dining with us.”

Customers dining in Scotland and Wales can take advantage of Pizza Hut’s “Bluffet” option.

This means customers can still get unlimited pizza, pasta, salads and tortilla chips all served directly to their table. 

Social media users were delighted with the news that buffets were returning in England.

This has slightly increased since the old buffet prices of £7.95 for an adult and £4.95 for a child.

Toby Carvery is also welcoming customers back, encouraging customers to use contactless payment options.

The chain is also continuing its cleaning protocols as well as asking diners to use its pay at table service.

Due to ongoing supply issues, Toby Carvery has warned that some popular items might not be available.

The company said: “As our suppliers gear themselves back up for service, some ingredients and some dishes on our menus may not be available.

“In the short term, therefore, the descriptions on menus may not always accurately reflect the contents of the dish. This means if you have any dietary requirements, it is really important to speak to a member of the team before placing an order.”
