Just a Pizza Express

You know what you get and it usually all revolves around the service. Food and service was good and we had a pleasant time. Quite busy and noisy but this is a Pizza Express. Just like McD's don't go here if you don't like what they offer and how they do it.

Good, bog-standard Pizza Express. I love it but don't go if you don't like pizza or Italian food. It is the same as in any other town. Reasonable, friendly service.

I eat in here every now and again and can't fault it. It does what it says on the tin. Very popular with families so bear that in mind if you aren't wanting to sit around small children. The food is always good. Toilets are rarely clean! Staff work their butts off. On a whole it's normally a pleasant enough... More

Portions were extremely small for that price. I thought for a family place the price would be better. Service was good, food was adequate at best.

We had a meal here at 6 p.m. on a Sunday. First impressions weren't good. It is a huge place without character and packed with families and noisy children. It did quieten down after a while so I guess if you want to eat in a more relaxed atmosphere you should go later on. Very good for families though. The... More

My husband and I have visited this restaurant a couple of times recently and on all occasions we have come away pleased. We love the antipasto sharing platter, and have had it on each occasion. I enjoy the fiorentina pizza and find it really filling. My husband has tried a couple of different dishes, but particularly enjoyed the lasagne. The... More

I absolutely love this place. The food is fabulous! I always get the Risotto Fresco, it's a starter but I find plenty as a main sometimes, absolutely gorgeous flavour. The desserts are also great!!! Service is always excellent, happy and talkative! All good menu knowledge. Would recommend to everyone!
