“OK, but very noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

The food was ok, relatively expensive for what we got. The wine was pretty dire & flavourless. The building has no soft surfaces at all with the result that, even if there are not a lot of diners present, the noise bouces off all the hard surfaces making it hard to hear conversations, what the waiting staff are saying, etc. Service was ok, but a little disjointed, some staff gave the impression that they didn't know what they were there for.

“Good munch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Some friends and I went to Pizza Express for lunch yesterday using our Tesco Club card points which gets you quadruple the value! Service was great, there was a slight mix up with my pizza but it was quickly rectified. I do find the menu rather limited, but what is on the menu is generally very nice. Polenta chips weren't my cup or tea but I think it was just personal preference rather than bad cooking or ingredients.
I would recommend and I'm sure I'll be back!

“Surprisingly nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

I've felt that this pizza chain has become somewhat "jaded' and we only ate here because we were passing!

It was a really good experience. I felt the staff were really trying hard and were smiling and efficient. and the chef was doing a great job making some very tasty pizzas. The restaurant is light, bright and has loads of seating outside for dining al fresco.
We've now eaten lunch here on several occasions and, other than on one occasion being offered a rather sad limp mixed salad ( which had definitely seen better days) I can't fault it.

“Reasonable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

A reasonable Pizza Express. Good quality food, as always. Very good location next to the station (good for people-watching as they scamper for their train). Feels a little congested, despite being quite big. Poor acoustics make it quite hard to hear eachother speak. Everybody else's chatter really reverberates, I think this is because of the lack of soft furnishings. Staff were a bit disinterested and slapdash.

“Excellent meal, but expensive drinks..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Last minute decision to book this restaurant, but managed to book a table, and on arrival was pleasantly surprised to find the table ready and waiting. Both meals arrived within 10 minutes, the food was hot, and the quality very good. The service was excellent,and the staff were cheerful.
Found the drinks prices were a little expensive, and four cokes were as costly as one main course, but this appears to be a trend now everywhere - reasonably priced food, but huge markups on the drinks.
