Nice food, pleasant and efficient service

Nice food, and friendly, fast service. Well priced, especially once you use one of the voucher codes that are regularly available

We eat at various Pizza Express restaurants regularly. This one wasn't up to the usual standards as far as our experience is concerned. Food and service was average although the setting next to the castle was nice.

We came to this Pizza Express for a pizza making party for 17. From start to finish this really was a top class evening The manager and his team looked after us well and threw in a few extras like dessert and drinks that weren't expected. The actual pizza making was great fun and enjoyed by everyone who came and... More

We eat regularly at Pizza Express and always leave satisfied that we've had a freshly made tasty pizza but on this rare occasion it wasn't the case. I opted for the new American hottest pizza that was displayed everywhere around the restaurant, the pizza looked full of toppings with lots of torn buffalo mozzarella spread around the base, what I...

Been here at least once a year for over ten years. On my most recent visit the staff were, as always, all friendly, helpful and professional, the menu large with a good selection of old favourites and some specials. Pizza Express pizzas are decent enough, but nothing special, you can make equal yourself with ingredients from Aldi - miles better... More

Visited a couple of weeks ago on a works night out. The restaurant was trendy, clean and had a good atmosphere. The food was lovely and the staff were faultless. A young lad served us, he was very helpful and polite and let us stay later while we finished off some drinks.

We often go to this restaurant and it never lets us down. The service is always great and the staff are brilliant with our two young children. This time we took some friends with us and they hadn't been to a Pizza Express for years, they thoroughly enjoyed it, good food, service and nice atmosphere. definitely recommend.

Catering for over 40 people could be a nightmare for some on a Tuesday evening, but not at this Place. Great service and great food.

Third visit here on business trips. Each time I have had a friendly welcome and was found a table (for one) even though on each occasion it was pretty full. I enjoyed the salad Nicoise followed by the new 'legere' lemon and vanilla ice cream.
