Description: Bistrot Pierre's 'raison d'etre' is great value French cooking and seasonal menus. We like to combine French bistrot classics such as steak-frites, boeuf bourguignon and creme brulee with our own take on regional favourites like confit de canard and pate de campagne. Our relaxed and friendly bistrot is the place to go for any occasion. Sitting in the heart of the town centre, just a two minute walk from Harrogate Theatre and close to the bustling Montpellier shopping district. The decor is decidedly French in style, with the accent on elegant and relaxed. Our bistrot is located on the first floor with lift access and benefits from a stunning heated balcony, which is the perfect place for dining al fresco whatever the weather! Open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner we have something for everyone, from the two-course prix-fixe lunch for £11.95 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 £9.95. 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 Soiree 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. We also have a bistrot in Ilkley in West Yorkshire, which sits proudly within a stunning arch-shaped building that dates back to 1861. Next door you will also find our sister pub, The Crescent Inn, which boasts 8 real ales, 15 wines by the glass, honest home-cooked food and eleven affordable boutique bedrooms.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

This was my first experience of the Harrogate outlet, but based upon my previous experience of this small chain in Leamington Spa, I decided to try out the Harrogate outlet. I was not disappointed. The food was exceptionally tasty, and the two-course deal was excellent value for money. This restaurant offers outdoor balcony alfresco dining, which on a warm summer's day, was perfect.

“Recommended!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Three of us visited on a hot day - had the early evening menu, two courses for £15. We sat on the balcony in brilliant sunshine and as the bread arrived, we felt transported to a holiday destination. Friendly service from a very helpful waiter. Main course menu was rather better for meat eaters than me - I had a salad nicoise, companions had a rump steak and a beef bourguignon which were both declared delicious and the best they'd had for ages. Good value for money.

“Fresh Bistro Style”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Beautiful food, fresh and vibrant flavours. The atmosphere was very relaxed (Sunday evening), and the early evening menu is great value. Anyone who enjoys Wes Anderson films will appreciate the warm yellow of the ceramic lampshades and chairs!

“Good food - a bit formulaic”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Nice meal, a bit overpriced. Atmosphere good, but somewhat difficult to get service when needed. Centrally located...needed to find somewhere to park...then paid for it!
