“pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

I was not really looking forward to this as I loath pizza restaurants but my grandchildren were taking me out for my birthday and they had a special offer. The special offer gave good choice, although my choice had sold out! I was, however, impressed that so many adjustments coould be made to dishes in what I had considered would be a very automated process of feeding the masses. I was impressed by the overall quality of the food and by the excellent service we received.

“Usual Pizza Express in a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food was to the usual high standard and the wine was great . With three boys it could have been a stressful meal but the staff were welcoming and helpful and service was well timed.

The view was great and location lovely and in Summer is no doubt wonderful.

The ambience would have made for a great romantic meal too!

“Service really good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Felt I had to try and counteract a previously bad comment because my boyfriend and I had amazing service. I know it might be more difficult with a large group but nevertheless the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. I would certainly go there again. The food also was amazing as only Pizza Express could be. I do eat posher food than just pizza so don't anyone think I'm just an ignorant student.

“Great food but slow”

Lovely food but service really slow. Even with mostly empty restaurant , they still managed to mess up out order. When it did come, it was fab. Maybe new staff ,
