perhaps it was because we stayed here the week between Christmas and New Year's but the breakfasts (6 of them) were frenetic and stressful. Let's start with the narrow aisles. If there were servers in the aisle you were pinned to your table as there wasn't room for two people. The more tables the management could put in the space,... More

Food was good as usual but service was a bit slow and had a flat atmosphere, unlike others in the chain that I have visited

This is a very pleasant place to eat if you like your food with a touch of La France. The menu is varied, the staff are polite and helpful, the food well cooked and the prices are good. The location, overlooking the River Avon, is lovely. It's worth a visit.

We always choise to eat at Bistrot Pierre if there is one in towns we visit. This one is the best though, with excellent staff. The burgers and steaks are beautifully cooked and the choice of starters is great. Such good value. Sign up to their website and genuine offers will be on their way.

Back in September we had a bad experience at the Weston Super Mare branch and said as much in a review. Within hours the regional manager for the South West (Alexis Legrand) called to apologise and we discussed what had gone wrong, mainly issues related to treatment of allergens. As an apology Alexis arranged for a complimentary meal with Wine... More

Description
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.
