Been many times, this time tried the American Hottest Pizza. I really loved it, not too hot, but perfectly fine taste. The staff were really nice, overall I thought it was a real good effort. Not sure about the polenta chips though.

It's a pizza express. It serves nice pizza with a variety of toppings. You can get dough balls as a starter. Just don't order sides, they all seem to taste amazingly bland. Service can be a little patchy at times, but there always seems to be plenty of room - have never been turned away from it being full.

Service was great but was so cold in the restaurant. Most diners ended up putting their coats on! Staff said heating was 'on full' but radiator next to our table was lukewarm at best. Made it an uncomfortable and unpleasant evening. Won't return.

I've been visiting this for a long while now and have always really like it. Last visit was shocking service. Staff couldn't have cared less, I got my food before my children and could see theirs being walked around the restaurant twice before we pointed out that it was for our table. The inside of the building is dirty and... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat that we knew would be reliable and Pizza Express was great. The old building made an interesting place to eat dinner and the food and service were spot on.

My daughter and I went for a quiet lunch and got such lovely service from all the staff. The food was spot on as well, served all in good time. We tried the Veneziana pizza, which was a great veggie alternative. Thanks especially to our waitress Eva!

Went to celebrate my partners promotion with a gluten free pizza and dough balls, for her. There were a few mishaps but the team dealt with them admirably. The pizzas were fantastic, as always and the wine was good. But the service we recieced was second to non.
