I went with a friend to this Pizza Express for a lunch. The waitress did not greet us, she seemed tired. Fair enough. We all have weaker days but when she made a disappointed face when more customers showed up that was just unprofessional. I ordered salmon risotto, which was really nice, but we also ordered side salads which turned... More

First time I have tried this place following the sad closure of the Ask chain oposite. Why this closed is a mystery as it was far superior to this restaurant. The premises are tired and in need of refurbishment. It was fairly loud as we were with a lot of families and children which isn't a bad thing if you... More

This Pizza Express offers the usual menu to the expected high standard with Friendly staff. But the tastefully restored building is over 500 years old! There are several small corners you can sit in for a bit of privacy. And in the summer you can sit outside in the private garden at the back.

Went to this Pizza express with my family and a friends. We have kids on one table and adults on the one next. The food was amazingly good, much better than any other main stream pizza place but what was really amazing was the staff. They were brilliant, friendly and wonderful. Made our night! Thank you

The Romana Basilicata, lamb, mint and chilli meatballs with red onion, mozzarella and garlic oil on top of a capia pepper and tomato base, finished with rocket, gran milano cheese and basil pesto is a refreshing addition to the menu priced at £14.25, my other half had the Romano Hawaiian, sweet pineapple chutney with a subtle chilli kick on a...

Clean, comfortable, and smart premises. Friendly and well presented staff. Sumptuous pizzas (we all had the thinner base). Excellent all round.

I had the Calzone Classico and asked the pizzaiolo to make me his version of the Classico, open not closed, it didn't disappoint, it was delightful. My other half had the new Hawaiian (she is not keen on tomatoes) on a bechamel base and she stated the pineapple chutney is nice and just spicy enough for her. She normally orders... More

On Saturday evening, chatting to my husband while eating my Leggera Pollo Arrabiata (a totally red dish of pasta) I was just about to put a large, thick slice of tomato in my mouth when something made me hesitate. It was lucky I did - it was not tomato at all, but an enormous lump of hot red chilli! I... More

Restaurant dirty. Ordered drinks, waitress came back and said they did not have gin! Member of party suggested they go over the road to the supermarket to buy some but this was dismissed as impossible.

This is ok. Its not bad and its not good either! The service could be better and I think they could be quicker at cleaning/clearing tables. Some of the fresh food looks a little tired! But the Pizzas are ok and I always love the Pizza Express Salads with their famous dressing!
