Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Great location and the food OK. Lots of staff but sluggish service and mistakes on the main course. Left waiting in reception for 5 minutes + before anyone approached us.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Spent a lovely afternoon outside eating pizza and drinking wine. The waitress was really knowledgeable gave us great advice about food to help us with our selection and was very helpful. Shame there was no umbrellas has there was a little shower and we had to run in with plates bags and drinks as did many others. Not very well organised then but can easily be remedied .

“Great Restaurant and service”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

I came in here with my wife for a bite to eat one busy Saturday afternoon, seated straight away and we had our pizzas 15 minutes later. Cant complain at anything service, food, price all excellent.

I would definitely visit Pizza Express again.

“A busy Saturday night”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Slow service, no toilet paper in the toilets, and busy, hassled staff who tended to ignore tables!

The food was ok but not hot!

“Need to remove the Express from Pizza Express”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Sadly the restaurant simply let itself down in service and the sheer amount of time spent waiting. 7 of us had lunch on the the 8th March at around 3pm. There was a 3 course meal offer online which we took advantage of. 2 hours in, we had only had 2 courses and had to ask for our desserts to take out as we were in a rush to get the bus back to the hotel. From asking for the desserts to actually leaving, took another 25 minutes. There also seemed to be an issue as we had decided not to pay the optional service charge of 12.5% which we just didn't think was warranted (a small tip was left as our server was a very friendly). The restaurant was less than half full and although the food was gorgeous, it just took too long to get served, for our starters to come out, for our dishes to be cleared away and for the next course to come out. 2 hours for 2 courses is not 'express'.
