Le Bistro Pierre thankyou! My husband said it was the best food he'd had in ages (he had the beef bourguignon) He's very fussy. Great service , good atmosphere and value.

We dined pre theatre on their two courses for £14.95. I had the French Onion soup to start and it was most enjoyable. Not too packed with onions to make it heavy going! Main course was the rump steak with frits. The steak was not good! So chewy I gave up after two mouthfuls. Although my teeth are 66 years... More

We took advantage of their 2 courses for £14.95 early evening set menu offer. There were plenty of choices for all courses so it was as good as a la carte really. Service was pleasant and efficient. Food was served speedily and well prepared, tasty, hot and appetising. Good value and great quality.

Our 4th visit in 12 months we opted for the 6 course menu, after great food previously we were really looking forward to a great night. Service and atmosphere was faultless.

I ordered scallops (they were cooked to perfection) and slow cooked Maroccan lamb (which was melt in the mouth heaven). The food isn't cheap but I felt it was soo good it was worth it. I cannot fault the food at all and would definately return. My only criticism is, like many restaurants, there are too many tables all cramped... More

We have often had birthday and anniversary celebrations here- the food is consistent. There are often good offers for members- e.g. free glasses of wine

I recently ate here with my boyfriend for the lunch menu deal. We shared an appetiser, unlimited fresh bread and butter, each had a starter and main, a glass of wine and beer and I had a coffee at the end of the meal. For obvious reasons neither of us could move after the meal. For lunch, two courses were... More
