The deals they have on and quality of the food are always good, however no matter what when I visit, they always seem to have poor service! Orders are always incorrect and sometimes it's simply too much hassle to change it!

Only visit if you have a discount voucher or you will find this experience very expensive- Pizzas are relatively small and bases thin - ok they taste alright but if they are slightly overcooked its like leather! Smart restaurant but PLEASE take a discount voucher in to benefit form expensive menu!!

We loved the thin crust pizzas. A good choice of toppings are available too. I also enjoyed my chocolatey pudding at the end, which was really good.

An average Pizza Express really, does what it says on the tin, same menu as they all have, service is ok, nothing special, food is fine. Restaurant is clean, just a quick visit for a work lunch.

A nice meal with great service from the waitresses despite the restaurant being really busy due to the Michelmas fair, currently in town. Lovely meal as expected so no hesitation recommending this as a place to dine.

I'd never eaten here before, although my wife and 3 daughters had (ages 13, 10 & 8). We were acknowledged the minute we walked, in shown to a table (which we asked to changed, due to my wife requiring a padded chair for her back), and given menus. It wasn't very busy - mind you, it was only 5.45pm on... More

We visited on a Sunday and the place was not busy. The showed us to the table and went, we saw a family with small children arrive who were shown to their table, they were then served. After waiting 20 mins another family were shown to their table and promptly served. It appears you need children to be served here... More

Took the missus here for her birthday, her choice, the place was busy but managed to get a table for 2. The service was pretty good to be fair I'd even go as far as great. The alcoholic drinks are way overpriced, we ordered 2 lasagne. We were informed after around 5 mins that there was only 1 left, which... More
