Sorry but I just like my meals served on a plate. Pate on a board no good to me. Perhaps cheese and biscuits on a board is ok. Main course could have been hotter but it was nice enough. Probably overpriced butt it is a...More

Outstanding value and generally good value food with friendly service. Only received one carafe of complimentary rose when four of us were dining (should have been two?) and bill was given without the set menu pricing being enabled - so almost over-charged...despite this still great...More

We all enjoyed the dishes we ordered. I had garlic prawns to start, which were delicious. The Harissa lamb and couscous was very tasty. The service was good too, and our waiter was very friendly and helpful. A complete contrast to the Swan's Nest hotel...More

Waited 50 minutes for starters to arrive. My calamari was overcooked and dry. Main course of baked haddock was also overcooked and tasteless and had clearly been kept hanging about as the top had formed a dry crust. The pesto was straight out of a...More

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.
