Went here with friends for lunch. We had a small child with us so they made us sit on the upper level rather than the lower level, which was empty. We carried the pushchair up a few stairs and wedged it in. This became an...More

Situated in the former fire station in Leighton Buzzard’s Market Place, Pizza Express is a two storey pizza restaurant with a modern decor and lively atmosphere. Pizzas are cooked on the premises in the open plan kitchen. Food is fresh and the service is friendly....More

Pretty much the same as any other Pizza Express, except the location of an old fire station, with nods to its heritage woven into the decor, set it apart from the usual formulaic chain restaurants.

Had a lovely meal this evening. Topped off with some freebie drinks to celebrate my birthday. Thank you Ben for your top notch service tonight. It’s the best we’ve had in there for a long long time!

The food was lovely and just as expected as I've been here before. Unfortunately, staff seem to be going down hill. I had what seemed to be the manager serve me, as she was walking over she seemed a little unsteady on her feet, when...More

We come here from time to time and you get what you might expect from a chain. Food is usually of a decent standard but drinks are pretty expensive. Meal for the two of us with 1 drink each is usually around £60. Disappointing that...More

Bad experience in this pizza express. Pizzas were overcooked and dry. Minimal amount of tomatoes on top. Expensive. I will never go again.

After a busy day at work decided to grab a quick bite. Ordered 2 pizzas and couple of drinks which came reasonably quick. And had a tiramisu to finish. Service was good.

We never overcomplicate our food. For us, simple is brilliant. Our founder, Peter Boizot, said ‘keep it simple’. And that’s exactly what we’ve done for the last 50 years. Naturally, we evolve our menu to keep it fresh and exciting. But the fundamentals of our food will always remain the same: simple, great-quality ingredients coupled with beautiful dough (and plenty of passion). We talk about ‘getting it right every time’ too. And it’s only through simplicity that we can do that, to make sure that every experience with us is as good as the last. So even with 500+ restaurants worldwide and new ones popping up all the time – and our team growing to almost 10,000 strong – everything that comes out of our kitchens will always be, well, consistently brilliant. We’re in the centre of town in a unique, 2-storey former fire station. We’re also close to Leighton Buzzard Steam Railway, that makes for an amazing day out. Come on down and see the magic that our pizza brings for yourself!
