With a mirrored passion for excellence – Amadeus and Barrel & Stone form a formidable partnership.

Frustrated by current high street pizza offerings, Barrel & Stone embarked on a mission to enable organisations with a passion for excellence, to freshly prepare, bake and serve stone baked pizza of an exceptional standard to their local community.

Operated by our pizza ambassadors, Barrel & Stone provides NEC the visitors the opportunity to indulge in an amazing stone baked Barrel & Stone pizza complimented by excellent beer and wine.

Like all great food and drink, it comes down to the careful selection of ingredients and their preparation. Their menus are created using the finest ingredients that pay homage to the original Napoli pizza masters, but also add their own twist from modern Italian culture. With a variety of pizza sizes and vegan & gluten free options, Barrel & Stone menus cater for all tastes.

With their ethos embedded in excellence, freshness and customer satisfaction, Barrel & Stone were the perfect partner for Amadeus.

Marc Frankl, our Food and Beverage Director says: “Our objective is to be the UK’s leading high-quality caterer, whilst staying committed to the quality of our food and beverage offering.

“With customer service front and centre, we are continuing to grow partnerships that have provide choice and versatility for our guests. Barrel & Stone is a perfect example of an organisation that is customer centric, and we love working alongside the team to provide fresh, delicious food to all that visit.”
