After booking a large table to dine with friends, we were, on arrival, simply pointed to where we needed to sit (by the miserable Manager) and there we remained for some 10-15 mins unattended until I requested menus. There was a dreadful shortage of staff, the ones who were working were run ragged. Ironically the Manager took time to settle... More

The staff seem to think they're special - they've forgotten they're serving in a restaurant. We are the important people, the customers. Overpriced food and the portions are getting smaller as the price gets bigger. And just because you work in a restaurant doesn't make you a model - the staff aren't remotely fit

Visited on a Sunday evening for a quick bite to eat. Had the pollo pesto which was well cooked and plentiful. Prompt and friendly service. Would be happy to return when next in the area.

The service was very good. We ordered olives and were pleasantly surprised with the amount, for the price. Usually in restaurants olives are a rip-off. The food was excellent, hot and tasty. Having a mini dessert with coffee finished it all off nicely especially using Tesco tokens.

Enjoyed our meal here on a very quiet afternoon in January. Welcome was friendly and service good throughout. Pizza's were excellent, had the Classic La Reine with an extra topping of pepperoni, cooked to perfection. There was a good choice of wines and we opted for an Italian Shiraz which was very good value. We sat in the window overlooking... More

Really enjoyed my night here. The food was good, we both really enjoyed our starters and I enjoyed my large pizza and of course thoroughly enjoyed finishing off my missus's small pizza. Service was good, can't fault that either. So why oh why have I stole back one of those precious stars!?!? Well, that my friends is purely because of... More

I don't get it: if an item on Your menu is called a certain way (polenta chips), You cannot possibly then serve it garnished with grated parmesan cheese (not on the menu). You ASK the customer if they want the extra topping! This has happened other times in this particular restaurant in the Pizza Express chain, which I find very... More
