An opening date has been announced for a new pizza takeaway restaurant in Wantage.

Papa Johns will open its doors in Newbury Street on Monday, March 13, and its opening hours will be 11am to 11pm every day.

The pizza chain will only deliver within a one-mile radius for the first few weeks but will soon expand to the full surrounding area.
