Excellent pizza as always

Visited en route home from the airport - Pizza Express is always consistently good food so can't fault that and we have a taste card, my other half is in the military so we rarely get to take advantage of the offer due to the date restrictions! Our server was Saul and very much like some of the... read more

I love Pizza and this is one of the best places in Kendal to eat it. Great choice of toppings for your pizza and different pizza bases. A range of other dishes should enable everyone tomgave something theynwill enjoy. Helpful staff. Will go again.

On a cold rainy Sunday night in January there are very few places still serving food after 9pm ......... Pizza Express was a life saver. We are not big pizza fans but were pleasantly surprised with the quality and variety served - salads, pasta dishes or pizza. The service was very friendly and welcoming and there was a good atmosphere.... More

Are here with a friend for an early tea, only a few people in the restaurant at around 5.30pm. The waitress greeted us with a friendly smile and friendly chatter. Food order was taken promptly. Food was served hot and as always to a high standard. I had the goats cheese padana pizza and my friend had the carbonara pizza... More

I've been to other chains, you know what you're getting. I feel this branch is has very cramped seating, which felt a little awkward being so close to diners all around us, and found the staff rather unfriendly. Our order took ages, nearly an hour between starter and main, which with a young child is rather tedious as they were... More

Accidently drove my car straight into the restraunt LMAO. but I managed to get some pizza bases stuck to the roof of my car so jokes on them really. Great food considering there was no charge and I hadn't planned on going in their. I just drive straight off after crashing with my free pizzas. That's what I would call... More

You know what you're getting with Pizza Express. Standard menu, always tasty, the same wherever you go. So you don't expect gourmet fare, but you do expect something reliable. This one, on this occasion, was ordinary rather than good. The service redeemed it (might otherwise have been getting a Poor rating overall), and one meal was okay, but overall we... More

This is a particularly bright and cheerful branch of the well-known chain. The staff are delightful and the food is always well-prepared and tasty. Today's lasagne was filling and delicious and was followed by a portion of the signature dough balls served with a rich, sticky, sweet dip. The restaurant and loos are spotlessly clean and the whole, very family... More

The food was delicious and the staff in this branch are really friendly. I find that in all Pizza Expresses the wait can be a little longer than some places but that's because they're always busy at peak times. If you don't want a wait go at a quiet time. The staff are really knowledgable and know their food if... More

We recently visited this resturaunt and can only describe it as a great experience. The food was excellent and very well served and the atmosphere was vibrant. I would recommend it without question and visit again. The staff were top drawer and our waiter Nigel was superb in a modern world of criticism we give credit where due.
