“Great service, fresh, hot food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

What can I say? Tasty hot food, 4 happy boys. Used the 2 courses plus a drink for a tenner voucher and was very happy! Easy parking, attentive waiter, hot, fresh dough balls and spicy, crispy pizza. Fab!

“Dr. Oetker does a better job”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

I think that if you call yourself Pizza Express and you have hundreds of outlets you should at least be able to serve a half decent Pizza. Not in Walton on Thames they don't. I sent the first one back because it was just 'soggy' in the centre like a wet piece of cardboard , the replacement was like a brick. Wine was over over over priced, the service a bit 'off hand' , the Manager tried her best but obviously the cook , they don't justify the term 'chef' was not up to scratch. Overall .....I should have bought a Dr Oetker and cooked it myself at home.

“Absolute disgrace”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

Haven't been to Pizza Express for many years, and my husband had never been. Decided to treat ourselves one evening and headed off to our local restaurant. From start to finish was an absolute disgrace. There were several bugs flying around, some of them managed to land in our drinks. We ordered a large pizza to share between us. It was so thin you needed a topping on it to hold the pizza together!!!! The garlic bread that my husband ordered was a small pitta bread drizzled in oil and garlic and a small blob of cheese. The drinks tasted like gnat's pee and a bottle of wine cost nearly £18. Have never been to pleased to leave a restaurant, never again.

“Better than you might think”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

As a regular visitor to this restaurant, I feel sorry for the person who had a problem with their buggy and hope they give it a second chance. A pal of mine is confined to an electric wheelchair and regularly eats here with his kids - no problems.

My wife and I visit most weeks for a chance to get away from the family and just talk. It's not special or pretentious, you know what you're getting at a PE and it rarely lets us down. On the rare occasion when the wine is not to our taste or the pizza is not as hot as we would like there is no problem about getting them changed and in fact, it is the staff in particular that make the Walton on Thames PE a touch above the others I have visited.

Add to this the permanent discounts offered by PE and for us it's a no brainer.

Just one tip for the first time visitor, choose a table away from the door. Window or walls are preferable. It gets draughty, especially in the winter!
