AN anonymous caller has reserved every table in Woking Pizza Express for a celebratory slap-up meal.
The pizza restaurant received the booking from a withheld number asking for the whole restaurant to be closed to accommodate a large family, ranging in age from three weeks to 95 years.
Staff member Nikki Hollis said: “The caller sounded like they were putting on an accent to disguise their voice but I could tell they were very happy. They must have just received some really good news. Honestly, they sounded like they were sweating with relief.
“I tried to let them know that reserving every table for a private function doesn’t come cheap, but they assured me that money was no problem and anyway, mummy was paying. Maybe they were someone rich and famous like a footballer.
“We don’t get much excitement in here, apart from when Prince Andrew tried to use us as an excuse to get out of some dodgy rumours, so I’m looking forward to seeing who it is.”
Supervisor Wayne Hayes said: “They asked for their ‘usual’ table, which they said they sat at the last time they visited in 2001 but unfortunately our records don’t go back that far.
“Still, if they’re saying it definitely happened, who am I to argue?”
