Owner Yashar Koksal opened Hispalis Tapas Restaurant a couple of years ago but has made the decision to change it into an exciting new Pizzeria.

The new restaurant, called ‘Mio Gusto’ which means ‘My Taste’ in italian will open officially on the 11th march and will have a brand new look inside.

With walls taken down it will be all open planned and a brand new fresh look and appeal for its guests.

The menu will be all about Italian cuisine from hand made pizzas to fresh pasta made on-site along with an exciting à la carte menu.

In addition there will be live music and if you can’t hang around to dine within you will be able to use their new take-away service.

With the Rhythm nightclub upstairs and currently open on Fridays and Saturday nights, once the restuarant opens Yashar is then going to finish refurbing the other half of the club to make it a two room club.

Yashar said:

“This is about bringing something new and exciting to Crawley. With an exciting new venue and a nightclub for people to go and enjoy after they have eaten, this is the perfect place for people to come for a complete night out.”

Crawley has one Pret A Manager within The Martletts with several others located within Gatwick Airport itself.

It is not yet clear which shops will close but with jobs cuts to come across its shops it will be a very nervous time for Crawley’s shop staff to see if they are affected in any way.
