The Rude staff particularly girl who organises tables had to wait 40 mins despite a booking and plenty of free tables while they were unable to get people seated , others also waited long times due to poor management of tables all in the queue were complaining. Staff were giving dirty looks at customers. I have to use up Tesco... More

Ordered two pizzas and olives... total cost £27!!! Pizzas were overcooked, dry and tasteless. Mine was sent back to the kitchen so meant we weren't eating together but got nothing off the bill. When I complained about my pizza the waitress who I think may have been the manager apologised and mentioned that I wasn't the first person to send... More

Sorry guys but you've lost it. We used to be regular customers but haven't been for a while. Mixed meat shared platters very good..... but the pizzas?? Not good. Warm at best. Dried out. Tough and really not nice. It'll be a while.

Came here as my usual pizzeria was quite busy and this one was nearby. It was almost full to capacity on a Thursday night so I was expectant of good food. None of the pizzas stood out for me so I decided to try the calamari and polenta fries. I finished neither. To fill me up I got salted caramel... More

This was a franchised restaurant at its very heart. No soul, crap service, and so poor compared to other pizza express restaurants we have visited. Avoid at all cost! Lazy service and dirty premises made this a disgusting experience.

But when you get a table the service is quick & friendly. They always give you great offers if you visit their web site. They give you a bottle of wine or... More

I've been to Pizza express a few times before but was always the one near the town centre. Tried this one for the first time & just didn't really like it at all. For a start it was just too busy. This would be okay if the tables weren't so close together, but you're nearly falling over people trying to... More
