Pleasant lunch

Arrived for a pre-booked lunch on Bank Holiday Sunday. Friendly waiter offered to clear a table so we could sit by the window. Fantastic value for money and excellent quality food. Nice choice on the menu which I understand is changed on a regular basis. Good idea to join their loyalty scheme. Very... read more

We had a meal here over the August Bank Holiday to celebrate my parents-in-law sixtieth wedding anniversary, no small event. Despite my wife and my father-in-law both telling the restaurant in the days before (unbeknown to each other) the reason for the meal and receiving what we assumed was an acknowledging response there was no noticeable difference between the way...

Thank you for reviewing us here in Trip Advisor, I'm sorry you didn't feel like your parents in law weren't treated special on the Saturday night, We were aware of the occasion and believed that you may well of been supplying table decorations or a cake maybe as the other tables that evening celebrating similar events, the time delay isn't...

We visited Le Bistrot Pierre in Stratford before going to the theatre. It was a last minute booking but they were able to accommodate us and we were very glad they did. Here are the main points to consider:- Food: Good quality/choice and value for money. We ordered from the 2 course pre-theatre menu, choosing crayfish risotto for starters and... More

We have used Le Bistrot Pierre in Nottingham and Derby previously and have almost always been happy. We were today in Stratford. They have a good range of dishes to choose from. My only criticism is that, as part of a larger group, they really ought to change their menus a little more often, as it was the same choice... More

Just been for a fantastic set price lunch here today. The staff are always welcoming and friendly and they have not long introduced a new seasonal menu.

The meal was going really well, nice food and attentive service until at about 9:30pm when there was a dramatic shift in attitude of the waiting staff. Their priority appeared to be in setting tables for the morning rather than focussing on the remaining 6 or 7 tables who were still dining. We had to call a waiter over (from... More
