Good For a Quick Bite and a Pint

Pizza is great, though it is a chain. But easy prices for a personal pizza and a pint of beer. Not much of an ambiance but at least its kid friendly.

Visit here regularly when in London on business. I have to admit that it is one of the best restaurants in the chain I go too. Staff are always friend, the food good and the value excellent.

I often go here with friends before a night out and have never been disappointed. It's no different from any other Pizza Express in terms of food although that says a lot as I don't think you can go wrong with Pizza Express. We usually go for pizzas and salad - the Bosca salad is delish! The staff are always... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff were very polite and accommodating. My husband and I were staying at a hotel down the street, arrived late, and were in need of something warm and quick. We arrived less than an hour before closing, were seated right away (it was dead on a Wednesday night), and received our food very quickly.... More

Service was good and the prices are decent. If you pick up a map when you get to town there will be a 20% off coupon for Pizza Express. Worth giving a try.

I usually tend to avoid chain pizza places like this, however after trying Pizza Express when I had no other option, I was genuinely surprised by the quality and variety of the pizzas available. I honestly would not be disappointed if I had been in Italy and was served a pizza of this quality (and I've been to Italy a... More

We often go to Pizza Express before head off to the cinema. It is a pleasant place to eat and if you go up stairs there is a very good window view or Baddow Road and some of Chelmsford high street. The service is friendly and generally very good even when it gets busy at the weeks ends. One thing... More

Went in here around 9pm on a week night and was very quiet. Waited for about 30 seconds with two staff members by the till with their backs to us, we asked if we could have a table for two, and very rudly the lady replied "just wait for the manager" and then turned her back to us again. She... More
