“Good food, would recommend.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Having found so few restaurants open in Barnstaple on a quiet March Sunday evening, my best man and I decided upon Pizza Express in the High Street.

When we walked in after 9pm, the restaurant itself was very quiet with only one table occupied, the guests of which were getting ready to leave. Unfortunately we noticed the waiter roll his eyes at the chef when he saw us walk in - clearly they were looking forward to an early close.

My best man had a four seasons pizza and I had a calzone, one of only a few on the menu. After ordering the calzone I noticed that they had a separate calzone menu which the waiter had failed to point out, or 'sell' to us.

That and the rolled eyes aside, the food was excellent.

The waiter was always cleaning up throughout our meal preparing to close and as he was doing so a further group of four walked in, how just!

The only reason why the restaurant is awarded four TripAdvisor 'blobs' instead of five is because of the service, everything else was superb and I would still recommend and return.

“Brilliant service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

the food is well prepared and presented, pizza, salads, pasta. What really makes this restaurant stand out is that the staff are amazing. we are local to Barnstaple and eat here every two months or so, we have never had a poor meal and we have never had anything less than exceptional, friendly service. Be warned, it gets very busy in the summer so book well in advance.

“Great treat on holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

When we go camping in Saunton, we like a little trip out to Barnstaple. We always make a point of going to this Pizza Express.

The staff are always friendly and the food is excellent. They are great with children and alway accommodating.

It's small but has an upstairs

My top tip is to book ahead as they are always busy
