600 Degrees in Hillside in Southport remains OPEN after vandals defaced the front of the family-run local independent business. 

The attack happened last night (Friday 22nd March 2024) with any witnesses urged to contact Merseyside Police or Crimestoppers with details. 

600 Degrees is a quality licensed Neapolitan pizzeria which opened on Sandon Road in Hillside just before Christmas last year. 

Owners said: “Unfortunately some low life decided to vandalise the front of the Hillside Pizzeria last night?

“Maybe it’s because we don’t do a BBQ base or sell pineapple!?  Whatever the reason…. WE’RE OPEN FOR BUSINESS AS USUAL.

“PLEASE SHARE…it happened approx between 9:45pm and 10:45pm.”

600 Degrees has forged a fine reputation since it was established in 2017, catering for outside events as well as operating one of the original food venues inside the successful Southport Market. 

Owner Dan Johnstone has now opened a new venue at 66a Sandon Road, Hillside, Southport, PR8 4QD.

It is inside the former Korean Kitchen unit, which has relocated to Lord Street in Southport town centre. 

People can eat inside, with outside tables becoming available once warmer weather arrives. 

A click and collect service is also available via the 600 degrees website, with 10% off all pizza for takeaway. 

There is a great choice of pizza including: Margherita; Pepperoni; Ham and Truffle Portobello Mushroom; Pizza Marinara and Olives; Pizza Diavola; Vegan; Pizza al Tonno; Veg Special; Italian Deli; and more. 

Diners can enjoy a choice of red, white and sparkling wines, soft drinks, hot drinks, beers, cider and aperitivo. 

600 Degrees owner Dan Johnstone said: “We offer really great quality traditional Neapolitan pizza. We make our dough fresh every day. Our ingredients, including our fior di latte cheese, are fresh and authentic. 

“We bake our pizzas fresh inside a traditional Neapolitan stone pizza oven. 

“Nobody else in Southport does what we do. Our pizza chefs are all well trained. 

“We have 20 covers inside and will have more available outside once the weather gets warmer from April. 

“We love being part of the Hillside community! It is a brilliant place to be, we all work really well together. Everyone is so friendly. 

“Hillside is becoming a real destination in its own right and if we can help towards that by attracting more people, then all well and good.” 

600 Degrees started when Dan and his wife went to the Amalfi coast of Italy on their honeymoon, also spending time in Naples, the home of Neapolitan Pizza. 

Since 2017, 600 Degrees has successfully been catering at weddings, private parties and corporate events across the North West.
