Thank you for looking after us so well- we were a large group- we had a great table- and were served promptly by polite and helpful staff. A nice, airy venue with a great deal of personality.

Old dairy supply building with tiled walls and a pretty stained glass window. Food straight from oven to table with no hanging about. Usual PE menu , helpful staff. What more can you want?

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

Situated two minutes from the British Museum in Coptic Street the restaurant is a popular place for both families and tourists. Close to the heart of theatre land in the West End of Central London, the restaurant was established in 1967 and was the second PizzaExpress to open. The tiles on the walls are the original to the dairy and many of its features date back to 1967, which gives this restaurant a unique identity.
