Rather than wait in the queues on the M6 I decided to drop into the Kendal branch of Pizza Express. The restaurant was nicely busy with families and couples. Even so service was prompt and attentive. The food, usual Pizza Express, good.

This is a great example of what a pizza express restaurant should be. My wife and I have been many times and are always happy with the quality of food and the speed by which it is served. There are a lot of tables packed into a small space, but this somehow never feels to imposing as the staff are... More

Called in for a late lunch with the missus. It was quiet and we were conducted straight to a table. Choice of pizza or pasta and we plumped for pizza and a wine/beer. Freshly baked and delivered to table piping hot. I don't like P Express policy of absorbing tips added to the card so give any tip in cash... More

I love the chain. Have for decades. The only reason I'm giving an average rating is that the room itself is very open plan and ergo can be rather noisy.

We ate here on a busy Saturday night. It was the first time we have tried Pizza Express. The food was good but we were particularly impressed by the manager and the way he pulled his team together to provide excellent service.

Visited on Wed 1st June. Being half term, it was very busy. However, we had booked, and after a very short wait for our table the staff did a great job. We had a really good meal, and the Tesco vouchers made it very reasonable !

Never go again We went for the 2 course for £9.95 deal. Appalling food / waited ages for it to come When I complained to the manager He said he would remove the price of my pasta from the bill. But then charged me the full menu price not the £9.95 for 2 course as we had ordered. So never... More

Four of us ate here on Saturday evening having visited here before and enjoyed it. Faultless from start to finish, even though the place was busy. We were sitting near the serving counter being looked after by the gentleman with the glasses and the service was just brilliant. Food up to usual Pizza Express standards. Having spied my birthday badge,... More

My husband and I had lunch here during our stay in Kendal. We thought the place was new as it was so clean and well looked after, seemingly it has been open for about eight years. The staff were attentive and friendly from the moment we arrived until we left. The food was delivered promptly and tasted great. This is... More
