Lovely..

After a rather disappointing experience in our hotel restaurant we decided too walk into Kendal, and ultimately Pizza Express. What a lovely and friendly experience. They moved us to different table without issue when we asked and the staff were very attentive whenever we needed them. The waiter... read more

We tried to eat here two nights in a row. However, both nights we were turned away. The first night, there were about 3 or 4 empty table inside the restaurant. All of the tables outside were also empty. When we asked to be seated, the waitress turned us away because we had not booked a table. On the second... More

Lovely looking restaurant. Good service and great food as usual from Pizza Express. It was Sunday late afternoon and hard to find a place to eat so we were pleased to find this restaurant up a side alleyway.

Decided at the last minute to head here for a pizza so phoned half an hour before to book ahead - even the phone booking put me in a good mood because the guy on the other end (Peter, the assistant manager) had a very pleasant and kind telephone manner. We were seated immediately and our friendly waiter Jarek took... More

Good service, good food. Staff were attentive and quick with food. Usual standard for pizza express. Helpful with confusion over booking too.

Entered, seated and ordered starters n drinks, no problem. Place filled up around us and everyone else served and left before we received main meals. Waiter came over to let us know what we already knew and then lied to us about why the meal was late. Almost an hour to receive food, ridiculous.

We started off with dough balls and roasted tomatoes. The roasted tomatoes were cold which we weren't expecting but they were ok. The dough balls were nice although the only cheese on them was Parmesan scattered around the plate. We finished our starters at 4.35 and we didn't receive our main until 5.15. The staff kept looking over at us... More

I visit this restaurant quite frequently, which says a lot for it as I like good food when I dine out. One of the problems in the English Lake District is the turn-over of staff and the service problems that sometimes brings. However I do not know how they do it but all the staff, even the newest, are always... More

Great service and delicious food. Clean and tidy. Easy to find. Priced good too. Very impressed. A worthy adversary to Pizza Hut. Top marks

Came on a Saturday evening, we were there what felt like a lifetime having just a starter and main. This is fine if you are on a night out but not so great if you are tired and just want a quick meal. I had the baked aubergine starter. It came out burnt, the cheese tasted all bitter. They offered... More
