“Couldn't fault it ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

We came for late lunch on a Saturday.

It was quiet so service was speedy and our waitress was attentive and friendly.

Pizzas were cooked to perfection and dolcetti pudding were very tasty and the perfect size with a coffee.

Not too big a restaurant so has quite a nice atmosphere.

Would come back.

“Reliable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

Early on a weekday lunchtime may not be the fairest test of an eatery but that was the task. The service was attentive, as well it ought to have been with four diners in the gaff, but getting the second glass of wine was not as easy easy as it might have been. Pizza express wins the plaudits for no longer rationing customers to four and a half olives but otherwise not much has changed in a decade. Nothing to complain about: nothing to fill the heart with joy either.

“Go elsewhere!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

Went here for a meal out with my other half, we had collected the BP vouchers giving us a free starter and main meal and had previously used them in the Brighton restaurant and been very happy with the experience. We thought we would try Haywards Heath, being more local for us.

Unfortunately we were sorely disappointed with every aspect. I booked online however when we arrived there was no record of the booking, the manager appeared very flustered and we got the impression we were an annoyance to her, we were shoved on a table by the door which had not been laid and was very cold and draughty.

Waited an age for drinks orders to be taken, our waitress was very curt, no smile all night. Again a long wait for starters, we were asked by the waitress if we had received them yet (shouldn't she know that?!). When out main arrived it was fairly clear it had been sitting around since the strange question from the waitress, pizzas were burnt black round the edges and parts of the middle, dry and totally overdone. I had ordered anchovies as an extra topping for £1.50 and there were 3 of them on the whole big pizza, when I questioned this I was told it was because anchovies have a strong flavour!

When the waitress came to ask if our food was ok we'd already finished what was edible, to be fair they did offer to make new mains but it was a bit late by then and it was pretty appalling that the food had come out of the kitchen in the first place. They knocked one glass of wine off the bill which was fair enough but didn't really make up for the experience. It's a shame as Brighton Pizza Express was great but I would avoid this branch in the future.

“Best pizza in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

Ever reliable you get what you expect, not sophisticated fare but good quality and tasty. The staff on our recent visit were charming and the food very good, perhaps because the restaurant was not too busy.
