Reasonable food ,

Visited on Sunday lunch time so very busy, can't say the food was fantastic , but certainly ok for a family outing, we used our taste card otherwise would have been an expensive lunch. staff were helpful, let down only by the toilets which have been neglected.

We went on a Tuesday night before the cinema and thought two 1h 45mins to eat would be okay....we were wrong! It took over an hour to get our main meal! My carbonara pizza had about 4 bits of pancetta on...needed way more didn't taste hugely! Dessert was served cold (even though we asked for it hot) By the time... More

Went with girlfriend for some lunch, food all good and service good, just seemed to lack the joie d'vivre you'd expect from one of these restaurants. Staff were very good with children and adults alike, shown by their mannerisms.

We often eat in Pizza Express restaurants and have overall had good service. This time when we visited Bury St Edmunds we were very disappointed especially with the service. I have no problems with young people being waitresses but on the day we went the young waitress did not seem interested and there was no interaction at all. We just... More

After visiting the Christmas market, we headed for some dinner. The service was fantastic and the waitress was very welcoming and great with our 4 year old. The food was delicious and we had a lovely evening.

I wouldn't normally bother with a review of a chain company - however, after numerous visits to this branch, I felt completely compelled to let everyone else know amazing they are, especially after reading some bad reviews on here. Every visit, whether it's with my partner, family or friends, is made 10 times better by the wonderful staff in Bury... More

My husband and I made the mistake of going here for an early dinner before a gig last week. Having had our waitress in our faces from the minute we sat down, actually attempting to guess our order and continually attempting to upsell on anything and everything we hadn't ordered, I was then appalled when both of our pizza's arrived...

We booked a table for three on a Wednesday evening on a two for one deal on mains, before going to a concert. Our 10 year old appreciated the work sheet (no blunt pencils but really good twistable colour pencils - nice touch) which they diligently worked through. Our mains were all tasty and star of the show was the... More
