Pizza Express; Notting Hill: The Middle Class McDonalds

We fancied a pizza over the weekend and needing a break from Dominoes we popped out to the Pizza Express on Notting Hill Gate. It was absolutely packed and despite their being only 4 or 5 waiting staff we were seated quickly and had our order taken promptly. It's perhaps not the most picturesque outpost of the chain but it was buzzy and friendly inside. The mixture of families, tourists, date night couples and friends on a night out all seemed to be having like us a good time. My wife said it was like a Middle Class McDonalds!

Our pizza's were good, my wife went American hot whilst I went for one of their new deli type choices. It was tasty and fresh though as usual I felt it could have been a bit bigger. Our waiter was very good and very friendly. He seemed to be thriving on the pressure and even gave us a couple of complimentary coffees. The bill was reasonable and I would definetly pop back again.
