When Pizza Express approached us with an offer of a free meal in exchange for a review of their restaurant we were more than happy to accept! (What’s not to love about a free dinner out for the whole family = no cooking for me and no mess at home!!)
We visited on a Saturday late afternoon with the kids in tow. It was quite busy but we were seated very quickly at a nice table with plenty of room for our double buggy and mountains of shopping!
The menu didn’t appear to have changed since I last visited a pizza express but with some firm favourites on there, we weren’t complaining.
The waiter we were assigned couldn’t have been more attentive or quick with our orders. He also bought activity packs and a balloon over for the kids without us asking which was great (he also had them in stitches which was really lovely to see). The kids’ meals had plenty of veg to start and some yummy dough balls. Both of our girls opted for the bolognese which was delicious (I obviously had to try it before them!) and actually full of flavour (I often find kids meals can be really boring)! My husband and I enjoyed pizza and pasta which were both really tasty.
The pudding I had was incredible – a gooey chocolatey plate of yummyness!
Both girls had Pip organic ice lollies which went down a storm.
Would we come again? Yes definitely, perfect for a quick family meal. What’s even better is I felt like both the kids had eaten a really healthy dinner (the lack of chips on the menu is great) …. The only thing I feel was missing (along with most other restaurants) was children’s cutlery.
