I have been here a few times over the last couple of months and every time I have left satisfied! They did miss a few things off my pizza order last time I went which was rather surprising as it was a traditional pizza they have always offered, however the staff dealt with it very well and gave me everything...

This is our local pizza express. Had a problem a few ,on this ago but decided to give it another chance. Pleasant enough staff but the food is seriously overpriced . We decided to have the "new" Autumn chocolate fondant pudding. When it came we could not believe our eyes. There was no sponge with a melting chocolate centre.... It... More

We had a lovely meal here, pleasant casual atmosphere, delicious food, friendly prompt service, reasonable price, and the best dessert, 'leggere tartufo limoncello' which, at 240 calories, is the dessert you have when you know you shouldn't have desserts. We will definitely return.The only downside was a fair bit of noise because the big front windows were open to let... More

Piping hot tasty food, served beside open window in a balmy evening in July with a pimms in my hand! Watched the delivery service guys in and out all the time we were there. Had penne bolognese, my friend had calzone and we shared tiramisu to follow. Great.

Didn't feel like cooking on a sultry evening so ventured on a short walk for a nice meal out. Really lovely staff and super salad with a cool drink was just the way to round off a warm day

Ate here twice in one week. The first time as a family was enough to convince us to return as a couple. Not classy, but pizzas were delicious and the the staff friendly. Would happily return.

This Pizza Express is a disgrace to the company. When ever we come here it is very noisy, bring earplugs! The food is now terribly overpriced. The staff are always miserable, trying to crack a smile out of them is impossible. The outside of the restaurant is rotting and incredibly dirty. I hate to be so critical as I usually... More

I've been going to this restaurant for about 20 years, but I can't see us ever returning unless something positive changes. I presume the franchise has changed hands, because the standard has truly plummeted. The food was literally burnt I sent both my wife's and my pizza back and said don't bother making another we have lost our appetite. The... More

Not a big fan of Pizza Express. Food seems really overpriced for the quality, especially the dough balls and sides and starters. We went to this restaurant once and was surprised it looked really run down inside and out. Service was ok. Half the food was cold. Always surprised when I walk past that there are people in there. Went... More
