Waiting...

Came in for a quick bite to eat before seeing our film.. we ended up spending most of our visit here waiting.. waiting for a table.. waiting to order.. waiting for food.. waiting to pay.. very slow service they looked as if they could do with some extra people working.

We had booked a table, they hadn't reserved it. We sat at a "cleaned" table - food and cutlery on the floor and ordered promptly. The jug of water my wife ordered came with something floating about in it, the 2 starters (doughballs) came in about 20 minutes. The meal itself was 30 minutes after that. My wife's avacado salad,...

We did not reserve, but were still seated quickly on a busy Monday evening. I have not dined in this chain of restaurants before. We were quickly seated near the kitchen, where we could observe the pizzas being made. We both ordered pizzas and watched them being prepared and finished. They were tasty and we had no complaints. The food... More

Visited just after 6pm only to find the location very busy and only minimal staff on duty. Waited a while to be served whilst the staff cleaned down tables as well as dealing with frustrated customers. I ordered dough balls which were standard and an American Hottest. The pizza wasn't the warmest when it reached the table but was quite... More

Tried the new 'American hottest' pizza - was as its says on the menu very hot and spicey! Lots of roquito chillis And spicey pepperoni made for a very hot flavoured pizza.

Does what it says on the box !!! If you like pizza, go no where else. Their pasta is good also, and drinks (wine and beer) are reasonably priced.

How they can serve up a soggy burnt pizza that tasted like cheese on toast and charge expensively for this, I will never go to this pizza chain again

The managers of this long established chain know what they're doing when they offer you price reduction vouchers for food (drinks NOT included). Once they have your email address, you'll be offered one of these at least once a week. They know there's a good chance you'll order a starter and/or pudding as well as mains. £4.20 for a small...

This evening I visited Pizza express in chelmsford with my family, 4 of us in total, and it was fantastic! The food was amazing as usual and the service was efficient and friendly, despite the restaurant being packed! We were served by a lovely young gentleman called Max who could not do enough for us!
