We had booked a table for my friends birthday expecting a normal meal as you would in Pizza Express. However, as soon as we got there, the evening only got progressively worse. We had booked and yet had to wait 20 minutes until we sat down. Then after they had forgotten one of our pizzas, one of the so called... More

We have eaten at Pizza Express before so I thought I would book a table for Mother's Day. We arrived on time and had to wait for two members of staff to stop laughing at videos on their phones (not very professional) before we were seated. After 15mins the young girl came and took our order, I asked if the... More

Booked a table for my son and I, and am glad i did as it was very busy. Despite this, the service as always from Carolina, was amazing. Nothing is ever too much trouble. My son, who is 9, even told me what a good waitress she is! Food was tasty and hot and served promptly. We have used other... More

I love this Pizza Express, it's set back from the main high street in a lovely little building that backs on to the river. In the daytime in Summer you can see people in row boats floating by and in the Winter it's very cosy inside. Staff are always friendly, and if it's busy you can pop over the road... More

Just a family lunch but well cooked. Children's menu has raw veg with the starter, always good to see some vitamins going in. Lovely pizza, I had gardiniera, not because I'm a veggie but because it's delish ! Will be back when I've saved up...

We took my daughter and four of her friends to this restaurant for her 11th birthday. We sat on one table and my daughter and her friends on another. This was booked in advance for a Saturday lunchtime. Everything was perfect, we had our chosen table and our waitress made sure both tables had everything needed for a birthday treat.... More
