Butlin’s Minehead Big Weekender Guests Enjoy New Buffet Offering

Butlin’s, the Home of Entertainment, is the first and only place in Europe to offer a Papa Johns’ pizza buffet as well as a takeaway.

Guests on the recent 90s Reloaded Big Weekender in Minehead tucked into an unlimited choice of fresh pizza, pasta and salad following two days of fun and entertainment with friends at the popular Somerset coastal resort.

In addition to Minehead, Butlin’s will add Papa Johns to the menu at its Skegness Resort next month. The development of the new Papa Johns restaurants will be run by a team of around 20 at both resorts.  Butlin’s welcomes around 1.5million visitors each year to Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness will soon be offering Papa Johns at all three resorts.

Leading pizza franchise Papa Johns, has added a fresh choice to the menu for all visitors at the resort.  Known for its “BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA.” concept which means only the freshest, finest ingredients are used for a better flavour, Papa Johns went down well with the Big Weekender guests.

Papa Johns now takes the place of the Italian buffet offering at both Butlin’s Minehead and Skegness. The new buffet features a choice of freshly made Papa Johns pizzas, a selection of pasta including penne pomodoro, mac & cheese and carbonara and unlimited fresh salad. The Papa Johns restaurant and take away offers more choice and great value to guests.

Belinda Reed, Operations Director at Butlin’s said: “We’re delighted to be opening two new Papa Johns restaurants in Minehead and Skegness. This now means Butlin’s is the only place in Europe that you can enjoy a Papa Johns buffet offering unlimited fresh, tasty pizza, pasta and salad.

“We’ve been serving Papa Johns to our guests in Bognor Regis for many years now and it’s been a firm favourite on both our family breaks and adult only Big Weekenders. Whether it’s during a fun filled day with the family or after letting your hair down with your friends on a Big Weekender, Papa Johns gives our guests an ideal dining choice with a great value buffet or takeaway offering to enjoy in their accommodation.”

Butlin’s family breaks offer fun for all the family with so much included in the price. Alongside a range of accommodation to suit all budgets, the cost of a break includes access to all live shows including headline acts, free flow access to the Splash Waterworld pools filled with rides, slides, rapids and wave pools, unlimited fairground rides, soft play and in Skegness the new £2.5million playground SKYPARK.

For adults, Big Weekenders are packed with a wide range of activities including live music, silent discos, pool parties, bottomless brunch and fancy dress making for an unforgettable weekend.

Amit Pancholi, business development director, Papa Johns UK confirms: “We are proud to have worked with the Butlin’s team to bring Papa Johns to Minehead and Skegness.  Taking over the existing restaurants, the new Papa Johns feature our very latest modern store design highlighting our fresh ingredients with vibrant colours and lighting.  It’s a fresh, fun, welcoming look, which creates the perfect environment for holiday guests to feel right at home when they order and enjoy their favourite pizza together, making their Butlin’s stay even more memorable.”
