The Camden Eye, the London pub run by BII Licensee of the Year Mahdis Neghabian, has opened a 50-seat pizza restaurant above the main pub.
Camden Eye Pizza offers pizzas cooked on site in a wood-fired oven. All pizzas are priced at £10 and are given various different quirky names including "Say Aloha to by Hawaiian Friend" (tomato, mozzarella, ham and pineapple).
The Camden Eye is owned by the New Pub Co, which also owns the Glasshouse in New Malden, the Cricketers in Hartley Wintney and the Black Lion in Hammersmith, among others.
Manager Neghabian was born in Iran and raised in Sweden, and came to the UK when she was 21 years old to complete a business degree. She started working at the Camden Eye in 2006 when she was 26. It now turns over £1m a year.
Neghabian has also had a film, called The Alternative Guide to Camden produced for the pub, featuring comedian Marek Larwood.
