The Nook features in Peyton and Polizzi’s Restaurant Rescue!

The Nook features in brand new Channel 5 series. Peyton and Polizzi’s Restaurant Rescue starts on Wednesday 7th February at 9pm on Channel 5

Peyton and Polizzi’s Restaurant Rescue sees Alex Polizzi, along with her brother-in-law Oliver Peyton, help change the fortunes of struggling restaurant businesses.

From staffing to menus, service and décor, Alex, with the help of Oliver, will be on a quest to transform four struggling restaurants into successful and profitable ventures. Alex will draw on her career in the hospitality business to offer critique, advice and guidance, all served up with a large helping of her famously efficient, no-nonsense attitude. She’ll ask Oliver to marshal the kitchens and critique the food, all in a bid to get the businesses to run with military precision.

The four part series airs weekly from Wednesday 7th February at 9pm on Channel 5.


So how did this come to be: around mid-September time we received a random email asking if we would be interested in appearing on a new TV show with Alex Polizzi, ‘damn right we would’ I thought to myself. So, I replied and then they in turn replied straight back. Anyway, one thing led to another and before we knew it we had been shortlisted and had made it through to appear on the TV show.

We couldn’t believe our luck! They didn’t hang around, by early October we had received the schedule from TwoFour film company detailing multiple visits per week over the following six to eight weeks. I remember the nerves the first day of filming and couldn’t get out of my head the thought of us appearing on national television…. what would all of the population think as they saw little old us and The Nook as they sat and watched our story unfold?

So they came but did they conquer? We will let you be the judge of that when it airs on Channel 5 in February. We certainly enjoyed having them around for the duration and feel we learnt a lot about how to get the best out of our little family run restaurant – one thing that everyone was in agreement over was the quality of our food! So if you would like to sample our delicious, freshly prepared, mouth watering delights we would be happy to book your table by calling 01489 584129 or alternately you can book direct online via our website

Our sister company is where we offer and cater for private and corporate events and this can be carried out either at a venue or your choice or at The Nook itself. Please enquire on 07760 661981 for further details.
