Although there is an extensive menu we find the food here very bland and poor value for money compared to all of its competitors on Gosforth High Street

Always like the pizzas here but reviewing today on excellent service. Two members of staff in for table service this Friday lunchtime and the afternoon and they were both excellent. They were kept fairly busy but were always efficient, friendly and courteous. Very patient with our group of children and polite and helpful when we were trying to work out... More

We have not been to this restaurant for nearly two years. It was very busy when we arrived but the staff were pleasant and found a table quickly. We nibbled on roasted tomatoes while waiting for our meal. For starter we had Bruschetta con Funghi and Calamari both were lovely. Next we chose thin based Romana pizzas which were delicious....

We called into Pizza Express (PE) on our way back from Lindisfarne to Durham, where we were staying. The decor, service, ambience & food were all typical PE. This is a franchise which has done very well on the back of families and groups of friends eating out more and more. The problem, if you can call it that, is... More

Called in here today for lunch, not having visited before. Good first impressions. Plenty choice on the menu but it did look rather overpriced. We both ordered pizza, which tasted great when it arrived. The pleasant surprise came when we got the bill. There's a promotion on & the pizzas were a fiver! The current offer is Monday to Friday...

Visited on my own on a wet Wednesday on business trip to the area. No trouble getting a table without booking. Staff were friendly and efficient. Excellent mussels for main and crispy squid starter and raspberry/white chocolate slice thing for pudding were good too. Would visit again for sure.

Family live a 2 minute walk from Pizza Express, Gosforth. Thinking 'it is Saturday night in Gosforth, Pizza Express will be rammed', I took advantage of their Click & Collect Take Away Service. 1 Melanzane Romano pizza for my parent and I to share. Ordered online at 19.40. Receipt indicated it would be ready for collection between 20:00-20:15. I arrived... More

My first ever visit to PE left me feeling uninspired and a hole in my wallet. Our visit was on a Wednesday evening and we were welcomed and escorted to our table promptly. The open plan kitchen gave a good central focus in the restaurant which was about half full when we arrived at around 7.15pm. As a Nationally branded... More
