A lovely busy, but not loud atmosphere. Ideal for couples or even families with child sized portions available. Lunch time fixed menu is 2 courses for £10.95 with a range of lovely dishes that makes it difficult to choose from. I had the 'chefs special' confit duck leg and a mushroom dish with toasted brioche and a sauce for a... More

I booked a table for "Dine with Wine" for a treat for my daughters Birthday. We were welcomed by our waiter Marcus who was an absolute star all evening with informative information and great service. The food was superb and the concept for a non wine expert to have it picked for me to compliment the food was great. The... More

We had a table booked for 14 people for a wedding meal after a wedding at the town hall! From the moment we walked in to the time that we left I couldn't fault the place! The staff were amazing so tentative! They remembered what everybody ordered and placed the food in front of them with no prompting! They also... More

I turned up at lunchtime...with no reservation. Some restaurants will not serve just coffee at that time, but I was warmly welcomed. I spoke French and the team member who took my order spoke perfect French-this a pleasant change from so many so called French places where you are met with a blank

I have eaten at Bistrot Pierre many times with friends and family; this most recent visit was with my wife for lunch midweek. Nice menu to choose from, starters of baked St Marcellin cheese and brioche e.g. champignons, both delicious (alongside complimentary baguette). Main dishes of poultry printanier and traditionelle tarte flambee, again both delicious. Two courses at £10.95 seemed... More

Had the early bird menu of 2 courses for £15. I was in a party of 8 and had goats cheese starter and pork for main, both were totally delicious. Service was attentive but not obtrusive and our waitress was young, fun and friendly. The whole place was pretty full and had a real buzz about it. I have eaten... More

I won't go on too much about the food as it is of a very high quality and pretty authentically French. There is plenty of variety and the ingredients are fresh and tasty. Where the restaurant really stands out is the service. I had a small issue with part of my meal being wrong, not only did they rectify the... More

A birthday party for 19 guests (family, friends and friends of family) was catered for efficiently by a happy team. Dan (the manager) runs a tight ship. We have eaten at many of the Pierres establishments and this was no disapointment. I went for the burger. Good quality rough ground beef. Succulent and hot with thin chips and a nicely... More
