Ordered "The Works" and some chicken dippers cheesy bites combo.
Took about an hour to turn up, the chicken dippers were stone cold inside, I mean, just came out the freezer or wherever. So I rang them, obviously the staff at Papa Johns have all failed to develop any interpersonal skills, Anyway, the guy on the end of the phone couldn't understand what my problem was with relieving freezing cold chicken. After a difficult conversation a(and lots of talking between staff in the background) I was complicated with a free large pizza for next time i ordered (which I won't).

The pizza itself was a large, and had one singular, very lonely and sad looking olive slice (not even an actual whole olive, a slice). Really stingy on all the other toppings, really awful pizza. Two fingers to Papa Johns.

This franchise must have changed hands. It's gone from being one of my most loved take outs to terrible almost over night. I ordered a Meat Feast and what arrived was a Meat Morsel. On a Extra Extra Large pizza four pieces of ham is pathetic. Expect to be disappointed.

Pizza had no sauce on it. Wedges were cold and under cooked. Waste of money!!! Never buying from them again!!!

We have ordered pizza from this branch of Papa Johns and many other pizza/takeaway outlets in the area without problem before.
The online order update advised that the pizza had been dispatched however after half an hour we phoned the store to be informed that the driver was on his way. Another call followed from the driver who advised he was lost. Despite advising him of local landmarks and our exact address he did not have a clue.
After over an hour of waiting since the pizza was originally dispatched we spoke to the store again to be informed that in their words "the driver was a numpty and had returned to the shop with the pizza."
We were offered a fresh pizza and that they would deliver asap, however this would have involved eating near 10pm when we had originally ordered at approximately 7.30pm.
We declined the offer and requested a refund, which the store agreed to.
After not receiving the promised refund after six days, we called into the store to met with a string of excuses. They also refused to provide the promised refund.
We paid for a pizza for which Papa Johns failed to provide and then refused to provide refund. Not the kind of service you would expect from a large chain.

THE BEST PIZZA PLACE IN LIVERPOOL. The garlic dip is addictive and the spicy pizza will blow your socks off
