Half empty restaurant ...never a good sign in a busy market town on saturday.
Despite booking we had to wait 10 minutes to be seated one of the 29 empty tables. Waiter not actually rude but just so uninterested that he had to come back to take our order again after a further 10 minutes because he'd forgotten it.
40 minutes wait for 2 pizza whilst watch the young chefs muck about in the "kitchen", laughing, texting, taking calls, just not acceptable.
Pizzas were fresh and... (read more)

Should have said "how often did i eat there?". Recently has become one of the worst restaurants in Stockbridge, surly staff, poor service and very overpriced food and drink. Will never recomend again after a midweek meal complaint handled very badly by both restaurant manager and area manager. Avoid at all costs!!!!!!!! (read more)

ABSOLUTELY FAB! our Monmouth pizza express experience has always been exceptional and today they were even better than usual! Ok, I must say - there was a ratio of 2 hungry mothers to 3 noisy, tired and hungry toddlers....(5 of us) so not to easy to deal with customers, arent we?! But ... they were very pleased to see us today and understood all our needs immediately! BRAVO! seriously, it isnt easy dining with kids, and you arent welcome in many places - they perhaps cant say NO THANKS but... (read more)

I've not been to Pizza Express before today but I'd thought I'd give it a try seeing that we had 50% off voucher to use and it shouldn't cost us too much. Even though the restaurant was fairly large, it was packed with people... Fair enough it was lunchtime, but having to stand up and wait 30 minutes for a table just seemed excess. We finally got a table and the 6 of us sat down and ordered. The staff were very busy, didn't seem very friendly and everything looked rushed. They got some one... (read more)

I had not gone to Pizza Express for a while and I had good memories of the food from here in the past so we visited to reasonable expectations. Atmosphere and Service was fine, but the food very disappointing indeed: For the price we were not expecting a very cheap fast food experience., but that was what we got: The pizza was Americano, chewy and flaccid with topping tasting like sugared tomato pur e; the garlic bread was little more than an oily pitta bread- a small, cheap and chewy...

Went to Pizza Express tonight due to the lack of nice pizza places in the UK. Unfortunately, it was a very disappointing visit. We are used to the service being bad, but tonight the pizza arrived luke warm at best, the requested additional salad dressing never arrived and we were freezing all throughout the meal because the air conditioning was on full blast (this is in February). After all that, we were not even asked whether we had enjoyed our meal. I've been disappointed by the... (read more)

Shocking. The bill arrived after a night of reasonable service, we paid and were told we had forgotten to pay the service charge. After looking at the reciept we discovered this was an optional service charge, we went back to manager and he said and i quote "come on mate its a bit unfair not giving us a tip so give us 10% at least, were not a charity".

The restaurant was cold and badly lit. The service was slow and the pizzas took 1.15 hours to arrive - hardly express. And then they were poorly cooked - altogether a very poor experience and I wont be returning. (read more)

On arrival we were welcomed by a kind friendly member of staff. The resturant was empty!! We took our 6 children as it was the littlest's birthday. The drinks were over priced Pinot Grigio 175ml £4.30 well, I wasn't getting tipsy there 7 Coca cola's £14.35!!!!!!!! The food was minimal, the 3 eldest had pizzas, little topping, no sides, 3 little ones had a meal deal, luckily they'd eaten well at lunch time!! My other half had a pizza that cost £10.30, a thin pizza with little on top. I... (read more)

i used to eat at Pizza Express in Wardour St in the 80s. This is so much worse, overpriced, soggy base, long waiting times, staff not up to it. Don't eat there at the weekend (or preferably at all).
Typical London dining experience all in all. :) (read more)

Pizza Express in Fleet is relatively new, so we thought we'd give it a try. We weren't expecting much, just a nice sit down meal with a few friends. We were making use of a voucher.
The service was great, pleasant and friendly. The food came as ordered, and in good time, so no complaints there. The food actually tasted pretty good.
My only real negative was probably the restaurant itself. The acoustics of the room just really didn't work. Everything just sounded so loud, as people's... (read more)

Tried Pizza Express in Wrexham for the first time, First impression was poor as the Manager had food samples on his shirt, the tables were grubby, as was the floor and windows. Staff looked very unhappy, although the manager did try with the kids, The quality of the Pizza's was very poor, few toppings and burnt bases. We had to return one with no quibble from the staff. I won't be returning as I feel cheated and I am still hungry.
Try at your own peril. Pizza hut for us next time. (read more)

Pizza Express is apallingly poor value for money.
Poor service - we told the waitress the kids' salads hadn't been included even though it was part of the meal deal. She shrugged and blamed it on a colleague. No apology or recompense.
The pizzas were small and the toppings skimpy.
Extra toppings were ridiculously priced.
The worst pizza restaurant we've tried. (read more)

I never thought i would be one to recommend Pizza Express so highly. I ate lunch their with a couple of friends last saturday (making use of a 50% off deal with a taste of London card). The restaurant was really busy, with a buzzy atmosphere perfect for a saturday afternoon. Our waiter, although new that day was comptetent and friendly (he even accidentally gave us proper champagne instead of the requested prosecco). The food was fine - as you would expect from pizza express - perfectly nice... (read more)

Pizza Express, food was appalling, service was appalling, dirty tables, dirty glasses. The new pizza range with the centre missing with a salad was shocking, the salad was 1 small tomato cut into 4 pieces with a handful of rocket. Would never go there again! (read more)

We hadn't visited Pizza Express for a while because past visits were bad. It seems that the staff and management have changed now and we have lovely meal, which came to £13 with our 2-for-1 voucher. We only had a jug of tapwater though as the drinks are ridiculously expensive. So a great meal on a budget. Great service from our server too. (read more)

Pizza Express is a lovely clean restaurant with excellent service, but the last couple of times I visited in the last month, once in Watford and the other time in Hemel Hempstead, the salad left alot to be desired.
I ordered a salad niciose and there was at most 2 table spoons of tuna in the whole salad , at almost £9 for a salad , which main ingredient is tuna I was disgusted, so second visit I thought I 'd order the chicken salad, again there was one strip of chicken in it.
I'm afraid I... (read more)

Pizza Express in Truro is a truly depressing experience. The lovely building in a central location s the only plus point. Once inside, you might as well be in a Pizza Hut, without the quick service. Kitchen looks grubby, food looks unappetising, bill looks like daylight robbery. Go to Piero's down the road instead. (read more)
