Pesto dishes up fork-finding dilemma!

pasta-puzzle

Here at Pesto we’re giving people food for thought with a tasty visual puzzle.

We’ve created a baffling brainteaser asking eagle-eyed customers to see if they can spot where a solitary fork is hiding amongst a mind-bending maze of pasta shapes.

The design is made even more difficult as it features a variety of pasta types from penne to conchiglie – all in a range of sizes and colours.

Our ‘cutlery conundrum’, which was created by our Graphic Designer Mimi Jones, is the latest in a long line of ‘Where’s Wally’ style visual puzzles that have been proving popular on the internet this year.

Mimi comments: “We wanted to create a fun, interactive puzzle that left people scratching their heads and there was definitely only one theme for us to do – especially as National Pasta Day is on October 17th!

“We’re looking forward to seeing how many people go carb-crazy and manage to spot the fork in the pile of pasta.”

This puzzle has an added twist to it as if you can find the fork amongst the fusilli and farfalle and bring in a copy of the completed puzzle to your local Pesto restaurant by October 31st, you will be able to enter a prize draw to win a meal for two people at the restaurant.

Join us for free pumpkin carving!

We’re giving local kids the chance to carve their own spooky pumpkin for free ahead of Hallowe’en at some of our restaurants.

Pesto Cabbage Hall, Pesto at the Dicconson Arms, Pesto at the Dibbinsdale Inn, Pesto Sutton Coldfield and Pesto Widnes exclusively will hold this ghoulish giveaway from 24th to 31st October between 12-6pm each day when children with families dining at the restaurant can have a go at carving their own design into a pumpkin – and even take their scary creations home with them.

In order to take part parents need to bring in a special voucher to exchange for one pumpkin, whilst stocks last, which they can download here.

As pumpkins are very limited and given out on a first come first served basis, parents can also book ahead by calling their local restaurant to reserve a pumpkin and help avoid disappointment.

Families taking part can then send a picture of their finished pumpkin to our facebook, twitter or Instagram page for their chance to be named the best ‘Pesto Pumpkin’ and win a family meal. Those without social media can email their picture to enquiries@pestorestaurants.co.uk

Ts & Cs: Please note there is very limited availability of our free pumpkins which will be given out on a first come first served basis, one per voucher, whilst stocks last. To avoid disappointment you can book ahead by calling your local restaurant. No cash alternative or alternative product can be offered. Pumpkin carving kits will be given out which are not suitable for use by children under 4 years old. These contain tools with functional sharp edges and points which may cause injury if misused. Adult supervision is required. Please note Pesto Restaurants accepts no liability for any accidents that occur from taking part in this activity. Please hand your pumpkin carving kit back to a server once finished with.

We’re celebrating our first birthday at the White Horse!

Here at Pesto at the White Horse in Desford we’re celebrating reaching our landmark first birthday after an exciting twelve months of trading.

Pesto at the White Horse opened last year following a £550,000 joint investment from Pesto Restaurants and Marston’s which saw the well-known pub undergo an extensive refurbishment.

To mark the occasion, we invited representatives from local charity the Harley Staples Cancer Trust to the restaurant to cut the birthday cake with us and offered our customers cake in return for donations to the charity.

General manager Jo Timms comments: “It’s been an incredible year and the support we’ve received has been truly over-whelming, especially as we’ve now achieved over two hundred 5 star reviews on TripAdvisor to date – a huge accomplishment for our opening year.”

As part of our birthday celebrations, you can also enter a fundraising raffle between now and the 14th October in aid of the Harley Staples Cancer Trust. Prizes include a family meal at the restaurant, a family ticket to Tropical Birdland, cinema tickets and more.

The Harley Staples Cancer Trust is a charity created in memory of 8 year old Harley who lost his battle with a rare leukaemia B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia Burkitt type in 2009 – just nine months after he was diagnosed. The charity has been created to help support families with children or young people with cancer, and will open a space for affected families to go on holiday called ‘Harley’s House’ very soon.
