slow service, big chain. Didn't really feel important, more like i was just a number on the till. Although food was good, especially dough ball sharer.

You know i really can't be bothered to go into all the ins and outs of my visit here. Suffice to say that typical of these Gondola Group owned chains, be prepared for poor service and an argument if you want to use any of their online discount vouchers. Mine was initially refused because the group i was with were... More

A group visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening when it was quite quiet. The food was nice and arrived reasonably quickly but then staff disappeared. It took quite an effort to get the bill. I am not sure why this would be a problem in a restaurant that was not very busy.

Having Pizza Express 2 min walking distance from my flat and with mixed dietary requirements from GF to flatmates incl vegetarian and wheat intolerant the menu (despite being a "pizza joint") presents a good option. Unfortunately there seems to have been a problem with suppliers causing 2 occasions in as many weeks being made more complicated than needed with lack... More

Having visited the pictures we planned to have a takeaway pizza to finish off the evening. I phoned this branch at 9pm to order one pizza and a salad. The lady taking the order checked with the chef and then announced that as there was only one chef on at that time could I ring back in an hour. Not... More

We visited here twice as a group before evening classes. The service was very slow and attention to detail was completely lacking and it was not that busy - waiting staff completely ignored customers, two of four orders were wrong and the service was very slow and food quite cold when it did finally arrive. No one came to check... More

Went here with some friends after work. The waitress did not seem very expressed and was asking silly questions (obviously trying to up sell) like 'Do you want salad with that?', when my leggera pizza already came with salad. She also forgot to bring my friends hot chocolate. We used a taste card and just to warn you you have... More

Good old Pizza Express. The food is consistently and reliably good, the prices very reasonable and the service is often excellent though this does vary depending on who is serving. The wait can be a little on the long side during peak evening hours at weekends. We find staff very helpful when any special requests are made.

I've been to numerous branches of Pizza Express but for quality of food, service and general ambience this is definitely the best one. My grandchildren love coming to this branch of Pizza Express and are always welcomed warmly, the younger ones made a big fuss of by the two lovely ladies who work there. When I have a pizza I...
