Description: We never overcomplicate our food. For us, simple is brilliant. Our founder, Peter Boizot, said ‘keep it simple’. And that’s exactly what we’ve done for the last 50 years. Naturally, we evolve our menu to keep it fresh and exciting. But the fundamentals of our food will always remain the same: simple, great-quality ingredients coupled with beautiful dough (and plenty of passion). We talk about ‘getting it right every time’ too. And it’s only through simplicity that we can do that, to make sure that every experience with us is as good as the last. So even with 500+ restaurants worldwide and new ones popping up all the time – and our team growing to almost 10,000 strong – everything that comes out of our kitchens will always be, well, consistently brilliant. We’re in the centre of town in a unique, 2-storey former fire station. We’re also close to Leighton Buzzard Steam Railway, that makes for an amazing day out. Come on down and see the magic that our pizza brings for yourself!

Stopped here for an impromptu meal mid week. Ordered a light meal for two of one chicken caesar salad, and one superfood salad. Both were hugely disappointing - both padded with lettuce and not much else, both under dressed, both not seasoned. Friendly service, but no real care when we said that we felt it was a poor attempt. As other diners have mentioned, we didn't feel cleanliness was particularly up to scratch, either. Will not return - Mama Rosa's around the corner is much better and shows the level of care given by an independent versus a chain.

First the photo is not pizza express!!!! Pizza express (the chain) is in a very nice old building, the old fire station.
Went there today for late lunch, very friendly staff and great pizza. The place has been decorated well and feels nice inside. It's good for lb

I have eaten here 3-4 times since opening and am still waiting for a bad meal....I don't think it's going to happen as the Pizza is awesome! The staff always seem helpful and friendly enough so not a complaint from me and will be returning very soon..

We normally love Pizza Express - but, have justa had an awful meal at the Old Fire Station. Dirty glasses and cutlery, burnt calzone, cold American Hot pizza (with no jalapenos), empty bottle of chilli oil. We need good restaurants in Leighton Buzzard, but this is not somewhere we shall revisit in a hurry. Shame, as Ask was much nicer - both for menu and decor.
