Pizza Express, Barnstaple

I have never been to a Pizza Express before, despite many people saying that the food is delicious. Last month, I tried it for the first time. We visited on a early Monday evening and sat next to the kitchen. You are able to see the chefs cooking the food. The food is a mix of pizza (obviously) and pasta. I was in the mood for a lasagne. My partner had a mozzarella and tomato pizza with added meat toppings.

The desserts are quite big. This is a tiramisu we shared for afterwards.

I love the napkins – they are so funny!

I was fairly impressed with my first visit, much better than Pizza Hut and Prezzo, related competition in the area. The food is generously sized and tasty, and the service was very knowledgeable and helpful. The price is great value too. From time to time, they hold their own offers – they had a free dessert if you order starter and a main. Before leaving, they gave me a 2 for 1 mains voucher to use in January, so it is easy to save money when you eat here. I couldn’t use these offers with my student discount, however, the discount gave us 40% the bill (not valid during the weekend I think)…so I am not complaining!

Afterwards, we went to Let’s Go! for some bowling. It is the only activities venue in the area and it is not exactly amazing. It offers ice skating, laser tag, karaoke, arcade games and bowling but I have heard negative things about their facilities. We paid £24 for two games for two people on a quiet evening (for our second game, we were the only people). The bowling facilities could do with some updating – everything looks old-fashioned and the skittles mechanism kept freezing. The staff are friendly however.

I won’t post any bowling pictures or scores…it is too embarrassing! I like the way they got into the Christmas spirit however…
