We enjoyed three courses but I suggest checking what options you can have if you want to use 2 or 3 course deal vouchers. I asked for the happy hour half price bottle of wine offer to the bemusement of the staff but they checked...More

Food was good. Service was a bit slow, considering place was still empty (early lunch.) Venue is well presented, as you would expect from a Pizza Express. We will be back. Restaurant i sin town center, to no dedicated parking.

The food was ok, but it was slapped on the table with little finesse. The waitress brought the wrong drinks and we had to wait ages to pay the bill. The toilets were freezing cold. Not up to usual pizza express standards.

Came here for lunch. Got seated straight away and seen too in good time. Food came out on time and then I guess our waitress went on a break and we were pretty much forgotten about. It was really quiet by the time we wanted...More
