“Great pizza, great atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Visited for a family lunch on a hot summer Friday. We had booked for 1pm, had to ring to say we'd be there at 1.30pm and eventually arrived just before 2pm - this was no bother according to the staff who were friendly and welcoming from the start. The restaurant was quite busy and had a nice buzz about it. Everything and everyone was clean and efficient. We had 4 children in our party, one of whom has a dairy allergy. We had brought along some suitable cheese and the chef was quite happy to use this as a pizza topping and reassured us that he had separate pans available for just such an event.

As you would expect we made wide variety of choices from the extensive menu and all arrived hot and well-presented and at the same time. 2 members of the party had not visited a Pizza Express before and were impressed with the quality of the food and overall experience.

“Like Pizza Express everywhere, but a new branch”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

The restaurant formerly known as Ask on Lord Street. The food was fine, but the service was a little disconbobulated - we were never quite sure who was looking after us, even though it wasn't busy. They only recently re-opened as a Pizza Express and I am sure they will have it all worked out before long.

“Decent Pizza Express”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Went here for the first time with family, I thought the building was quite nice and airy with full size windows on both sides. It was on a Sunday afternnon when we went so it was fairly quiet. The food was good and the service was decent. I used Tesco vouchers to pay for some of the meal it could have been quite expensive otherwise.

“Very upset this restaurant is now closed?”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Over the years we have often eaten at this restaurant when visiting my family in Southport. Seven of us ate there on Saturday 24th May. Unknown to us at the time, it was to be our final meal there. For us, the attraction to this restaurant every time is the great food, good service & intimate atmosphere. The view through the large windows onto a lovely area of Lord Street is also a winner. At the end of our meal my 10 year old son went to thank the chef. The chef explained that the restaurant was to close the next day. We were informed that it was to move to another larger central venue in Southport. How disappointed we were, we could not believe it. We were glad we made a final visit before it closed. Unfortunately, we will not be as regular to visit the
new one.
