Pizza express deals always great

The pizza express deals are great, not many restaurants have them throughout the weekend starting on Friday, smart thinking! Pizzas, salad and puddings are always delicious.

I LIKE Pizza Express! Why? The menu is always reliable, and I have never had a bad meal yet! The first time I ate at Pizza Express was many years ago in Bristol. I remember that the pizza was delicious. The garlic bread with mozzarella cheese was big! However, it has shrunk over the years, but is still tasty. This... More

We stopped by on the way home as there were not many other places around the area to eat where you could actually sit down. The food was good, and the place itself looked nice enough. The let down however was with the staff. They were standing in the corner, some eating and some just talking. I had to physically... More

This Pizza Express has recently had a refresh. it is now a stylish restaurant . We had the fixed price Christmas menu which offers good value. The Bruschetta is really tasty. I had the pizza with the Hoisin Sauce and the pulled duck. This was really good and reminded me of eating a Chinese crispy duck. Helpful staff and always... More

Fantastic refurbishment and superb food made for a very enjoyable lunchtime pizza feast washed down with red wine... Superb service as well - nothing too much trouble. We look forward to our next visit.

I love Pizza and I love Pizza Express. This is a good one! The thing that so often lets Pizza Express down for me is cold plates. My girlfriend says I'm too fussy but I'm English and I like my food hot. Hot pizza plus cold plate = lukewarm pizza. Anyway, plates were hot. Pizza was hot. Atmosphere was buzzing.... More

Of the many Pizza Express restaurants we have visited, this sits as one of the best. Whilst most offer a reliable experience, especially when coping with the little ones, this restaurant really stands out.
