“Best meal of our holiday!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

My boyfriend and I had a short break to Bath in March, and when struggling to find somewhere to eat, Pizza Express was our "go-to move". We were delighted with our choice as the staff here were nothing but professional and helpful, even pointing out that we could use an "orange-wednesdays deal" to halve the price of our pizzas. The food itself was brilliant, and presentation of food and the restaurant itself was spot on. We had such a lovely evening and the service here was very prompt. Cannot praise the place enough, we had a wonderful dinner here, and despite how busy it was the staff were obviously managing very well, and the atmosphere was not ruined by the large amount of people who were dining here that evening. Very impressed!

“Could be so much better ...”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We like Pizza Express but we were very disappointed this time.

During seating we were given menus quickly and our drinks, water and order taken quickly, for lunch at 12.30pm. Our food arrived in good time. We had a good table next to the kitchen, so we could see things being made. 3 staff in an extremely small kitchen for quite a large restaurant.

I ordered a thin pizza which although tasty, the base in the middle was undercooked and doughy and the edges overdone. A thin base should be crisp.

We then waited half an hour after our plates were cleared before we asked for a dessert menu, when we saw the table that came in after us being served dessert! Staff seemed to lose track of the order of things. Three times during lunch staff dropped and broke crockery/glasses.

They then did not have the desserts we ordered! We gave up and paid.

“Pizza OK - service poor”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Was in here late afternoon, so place was not busy. The pizza quality was ok - although I think they have become somewhat overpriced.

The young man serving seemed completely uninterested in providing any kind of pleasant serving experience. I hadn't been to a Pizza Express for some time - but one of my memories was that the staff were always friendly and good - not this time.

Btw - photo at the head of these reviews is not the Bath Pizza Express.

“Disappointing.”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We visited for a treat for the kids at lunchtime. The upstairs tables were full and so we were ushered downstairs. We were the first people down there and it wasn't much fun sitting on our own to be honest! We ordered two kids meals and a pizza for the adults to share. We asked for a jug of tap water. The waitress went away and returned with the jug of water. The jug was covered in scummy looking water marks and with the bright lights shining on it it was really off-putting. It obviously hadn't been cleaned/dried properly. I wondered if the waitress would drink water from a jug like this herself! It really put me off my meal. The kids starters arrived which were fine ( the kids deal is reasonable here) and then once they had finished our pizzas arrived. I was struck by the small size of the pizzas, particularly having recently visited another pizza. We were given our pizza to share but with no plates to eat from. after we had eaten half the pizza the waitress suddenly arrived with the plates...a little too late I'm afraid! The desserts and coffee were nice. I wouldn't come here again. It lacks atmosphere and service is lacking.
