“Noisy, neverless the Pizza was excellent”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

The Bishops Stortford Pizza Express is located in a lovely old wooden-beamed building - particularly apparent if you are seated upstairs.

On our Saturday night visit we were surprised at the number of family birthday parties, and the number of young children; but they were all having a great time judging by the volume of noise!

The fare was up to the usual standard, and the menu has recently been expanded with new variations of old favourites, although they're still available.

All in all, a very pleasant evening, food and location making it worth a visit.

“Good food but poor service”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

Pizza Express used to be good, but lately the service has been awful. I went in there with a pushchair recently, got no help from staff and frowned upon for bringing my small (and very well behaved) toddlers in. I've also found that you are either pushed to make a menu choice within a minute, or ignored completely and end up having to ask after 30 minutes to place your lunch order. Not great if you have babies in tow. I certainly won't be going back in a hurry.

“Great but make sure you book at peak times”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

The food is as ever very good. The service is quick. Don't just turn up without booking at peak times as you will have a long wait. Finally make the most of your Tesco vouchers
