Claude Camilleri, who owns ‘Margos’ pizzerias in Malta, is the new licensee at the pub that will now serve his authentic Neapolitan pizzas.
The pub will have a deli inside, where locals can buy baked goods and cooked meats.
Claude is new to Berkhamsted and has found its residents to be very welcoming.
He said: “The local community is amazing, and I cannot wait to welcome everyone into my pub!”
Claude added: “When I visited Berkhamsted before, I fell in love with The Old Mill pub. As soon as the opportunity came to take it on, I just knew I had to pounce on it!”
Andrew Milne, business development manager at Greene King Pub Partners, said: “I can tell you first-hand that Claude’s pizzas are in a different league! He knows his beer too and hospitality is in his DNA.”
Andrew continued: “The people of Berkhamsted are going to have a real gem of a pub on their doorstep.”
His pizzas have been ranked as some of the best in the world according to La Enciclopedia Della Pizza.
He said: “I love the great British pub and making amazing pizza, so combining these two passions together is a dream come true. With great pizza, great beer and a great pub, what’s not to like?”
