I work in Swindon.  It’s not the loveliest place but sometimes I want to have a quick bite to eat with a friend after work.  Pizza Express has always been quite a good option and definitely responds quickly to changing dining tastes, so they are often my go-to when I am somewhere that is more chain than independent.  I opted for the garlic baked mushroom followed by the pizza giardiniera. Both courses were excellent – interesting ingredients, well prepared and didn’t feel like add-ons to the main menu. I am particularly impressed that they also label the vegan drinks – something that is often overlooked.  Given there is more than one vegan option on the menu (I know!) I am definitely going back.
