PIZZA EXPRESS, Hemel Hempstead

Pizza Express,
5a Riverside
Hemel Hempstead
Herts, HP1 1BT

Ok, so this is a chain and you get the same menu wherever you go in the country AND we have been to this particular Pizza Express umpteen times (mainly due to the vouchers they issue - 1 main meal free, dine for £12 etc). BUT those facts do not detract from the fact that this place is worthy of a write up.

The parking areas seemed a bit busy so we were worried the restaurant would be full to overflowing, but we were able to have a choice of table from 3 available. The guy who served us left us with the menus long enough to allow us to browse and decide on drinks, before coming back to take our drinks order. These were delivered promptly.

Another suitable interval to allow a good browse through their menu and he took our food order.... we always seem to go for the same thing (so predictable huh?) and one day, I am sure, we will be adventurous.

The food arrived, piping hot (Jeeze that tomato sauce is VERY hot!), really fresh out of the oven and it went down very well. The guy who served us did a "status check" asking if everything was OK before retreating once again to leave us to our meal.

The Beeb splashed out on a pudding - Banoffee Pie with cream which Minty "creamed" aswell (as in she dug her little finger into the cream topping!).

So overall, a very pleasant experience. Actually we have never had a bad experience at this Pizza Express. Tonight, the noise level was lower than normal (the price you pay for having a solid floor which reverberates the noise, which means everyone speaks louder and then you hit the vicious circle....).

Will we come here again? For sure.. as long as Pizza Express keep churning out their promotional offers, we'll be there!!!
