What to say - this place is a real welcome addition to Blackpool. A chain that I have dined at in London, Leeds, Manchester and Preston and it has to be said, Blackpool is one of the best ones. Good location too. If you want to eat in town you can't go far wrong here.

I have visited here a few times recently whilst on business and this time for pleasure with my husband. This is a beautiful branch, always clean and the staff are brilliant. The food is brought out quickly and the order is always right.

We called in for a meal early evening without a reservation and were conveniently accommodated with an infant. We ordered the antipasti for starters which was a great choice to share. Both pizzas chosen were up to the pizza express great standard. The restaurant had new decor and the staff were friendly and assisted with activities to occupy the infant.

My partner and I were fed up of greasy spoon restaurants and cafés in Blackpool, we looked in Pizza Express and it looked just the place for us, we asked if we could just have drinks and were told no problem. Needless to say a coffee became a coffee and a pizza, then we had a garlic bread and beer... More

The food is excellent however over six visits, only once have I placed my order for my first drink within 20 minutes of arriving. We only continue to use the place for some discounts that we are entitled to. I'd have stopped going otherwise by now.

Visited Pizza Express Blackpool on 16/06/14 - just before the Pet Shop Boys played at The Winter Gardens - which was just across the way. Restaurant was full on arrival but staff assured us our wait would be no longer than 15 mins & that turned out to be spot on. The staff were clearly under pressure to deliver but... More

There is slow, there is very slow, then there is Pizza not-Express Blackpool. After an early start and a day out in Blackpool we were hungry and needed something to eat before a long drive home. Our order was taken promptly and our drinks arrived, but then we had to wait, and wait and wait. Whist there were a reasonable... More

We found the food quality to a high standard and portions size more than adequate. The staff did more than any previous pizza express we have visited as giving a child the opportunity to make biscuits whilst our food was being prepared and then have them baked to take home was excellent. Would recommend not only for the food but... More

We looked for an appealing local restaurant of any type of cuisine in this area near the tower but nothing appealed or was very over pricedso we went to PE. It does what it says on the tin. All the staff were lovely apart from the manager who practically threw a pizza wheel at my partner. Miserable!
