I've been to so many of these; they're great for mixed parties whether someone has children, dietary requirements or if you're a group of pals out for an evening. However, this particular restaurant was so much better than any Pizza Express I've eaten at; the food was delicious (especially the salads), portions were generous and service was excellent. The view... More

Food was very good but service was extremely poor. Bored looking waitress, no mention of the fact there is a children's menu, mistakes when ordering and no apology over them - I could go on. Very disappointed as I usaully enjoy eating at Pizza Express.

Very busy, Saturday night. The service was good and the food really nice. A lovely atmosphere in the restaurant, not rushed to eat or finish our meal to vacate table.

The pizza itself was okay but I had a few issues with the service. First off there was no mention of a deal being on for two courses even though when we left we saw it advertised outside. Annoying as we would have gone for this. Secondly, they didn't have the drink I ordered (a lemonade) so when I looked... More

Would not visit the chain again. Very expensive and poor quality food. You can buy a better pizza from asda for a quarter of the price. Service very good though.

We visited pizza express in Blackpool on a busy Saturday 28th March at 5pm. There was eight of us so we had booked to eat prior to attending a show. We had a lovely meal, the service was excellent, attentive, fabulous, Chris looked after us brilliantly, with a sunny bright personality and totally aware of our needs. Fabulous work Chris.... More
