“Not too exciting”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We visited Pizza Express as a family with two small children. The staff were great and gave the children crayons and colouring books which is a very nice touch. The food arrived in a timely manner but not very exciting, I suppose you get what you pay for in fast food establishments.

“Best pizza ever”
Reviewed 26 October 2013 via mobile

This was definitely the best pizza I ever had. We're going back as soon as we can. The pizza was very crispy. The staff was very nice. We got cheesecake for dessert and it was very good too.

“Not as good as normal”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 via mobile

Pizza Express is my favourite of the pizza chain restaurants and I often order the same thing.

This time the pizza was a bit soggy, the macaroni cheese, or what ever they call it, was not great and the beetroot and goats' cheese pizza had hardly any beetroot.

Dough balls were OK.

In a bit of a rush so didn't bother to make a fuss, but the standard was below what we expected.

Staff friendly enough.
