Visited here for my grandaughter's 9th birthday following a successful build a bear party!! Just perfect. Very good children's menu. 3 courses. everyone happy. Adults all. had the 500 cal pizza. Again excellent. Staff very helpful and working well considering how busy it was. Also very good value for what we had. Definately will return.

I do like a good Pizza Express which is why despite the bad experiences I sometimes have here (screaming kids, urine on the toilet seats, waiting ages for the bill, getting stuck next to the door and being freezing cold, chefs making far too much noise) I do return again and again. Although Pizza Express are getting stingier by the year with their toppings they do do what they do darn well. I have no complaints about the food (apart from the portion size and drink and dessert prices) but this restaurant is always full of families who don't give a toss if their spoilt children are screaming and ruining everyone elses evening! On 2 occasions I've visited and the toilets have been in an unholy state. I complained twice and i'm pleased to say after that they have gotten better. One thing I can't stand though is how loud the chefs are, I know you're meant to get into the spirit of things and enjoy seeing the pizzaiolos at work but I really feel they ought to be seen and not heard. If you're after a nice chilled meal think twice about this Pizza Express and try one of Bath's independent Pizza Restaurants!

The pizzas were amazing as you would expect but this site is terrible! Having been numerous times the food has never disappointed but only go if you want miserable staff and extremely slow service. The service is terrible, the last time we had an hour and 10 minute wait for two pizzas, this was all we ordered so no excuses. In addition the chefs and manager were arguing and having strops with each other in an open kitchen, appalling behaviour!

To top it off whether busy or not the place always seems devoid of atmosphere and a little dirty.

I had the misfortune of dining here recently in what can only be described as a dreadful restaurant. Despite being seated next to the servers' preparation counter the service was diabolical. There were plenty of staff but they all seemed disinterested, unmanaged, and 'busy' doing other things. Bored of being sat waiting I had to get up from the table twice to walk over to the cash till to summon a waitress so that we could place food orders and get the bill. Once a waitress was at the table they were perfectly friendly but, there seemed to be no management or leadership in the restaurant. The place was half-empty but the large army of staff didn't seem in the least bit interested in interacting with their customers.

The overpriced food arrived quickly but was as disappointing as the service - bland salads and basic over-salted pizzas that seemed to lack any sort of real care in their making.

Entertainment was provided by the young staff breaking crockery and having loud conversations with each other next to the customers. That was the atmosphere!

I would have liked to write something positive about this restaurant but it failed in EVERY respect.
There are lots of good restaurants in Bath but I suggest you avoid this disaster zone. Not recommended - I shall never return!
