This was my first visit to this restaurant and I was very impressed with. We were given a table with lovely views of the river. The drink order was soon taken and very tasty bread and butter was brought to the table. I had a wonderful meal with the starter and main course being of a particularly high quality. My... More

We too were taken here by friends who live in the area. It's a favourite of theirs and I can see why. With a good choice of menu, the service was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere had a real buzz to it, without being too noisy. The Beef Bourguignon - the restaurants signature dish - was a real hearty... More

I will touch briefly on the negative as it was addressed at the end of the meal. The front of house needs serious attention. Too much congestion by the entrance doors. Staff too busy to show people quickly to their tables, having to stand around for over 5 minutes whilst diners gawk at you is not nice. Re-design the entrance... More

We were taken here by friends whilst visiting. They had been a number of times before. I was very impressed by the food and it was very good value (two courses and a pint of beer each for around £45) I had the slow cooked rabbit as main and was pleased to find two good sized chunks of meat, with...

Visited Le Bistrot Pierre today for lunch with friends(we are all Francophiles so we're on the lookout for some French feel).We walked in on a local charity event which included live music(it is St Patrick's Day after all) yet despite it being quite noisy it all added to the atmosphere. The menu had a definite French flavour with a good... More

My family had a great meal on Saturday lunchtime. Staff were excellent and did not mind when some of our party were delayed due to traffic problems - they did not rush us at all. Our two grandchildren enjoyed it too as the children's menu was very good.

Description
Bistrot Pierre's 'raison d'être' is great value French cooking and seasonal menus. We like to combine French bistrot classics such as steak-frites, boeuf bourguignon and tarte au citron with our own take on regional favourites like tarte flambée, Bouillabaisse and paté de campagne. Our relaxed and friendly bistrot is the place to go for any occasion. Open seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch and dinner we have something for everyone, from the two-course prix-fixe lunch for £10.95 and a two-course pre-theatre menu for £14.95 to the sumptuous a la carte menu, and for those with little time we now also offer a one-course lunch menu for just £9.50. Wander through our distinctive French wine list too, with over 20 French wines sold by the glass you will discover something exquisite to drink with your meal. For something a little special we also host a range of events at the bistrot. Join us on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month for our Soireé Gastronomique, a six-course set menu with hearty provincial cooking. This is outstanding value priced at £22.95 per person. In addition, we also offer a special Dine with Wine evening where each course comes with a glass of specially chosen wine. This takes place on the first and third Wednesday of every month, so join us for a delicious two or three course set dinner menu for £22.95/£27.95 per person. We want to make sure there is something for everyone on our menus, whatever your dietary requirements. That's why you'll find plenty of delicious gluten-free dishes as well as a child-friendly menu on offer to help make your experience in our restaurant as easy and enjoyable as possible. If you love what we do and are looking for the perfect present, give the gift of French dining and order our gift vouchers online.
