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 crème brulee with our own take on regional favourites like confit de canard and paté de campagne. Our relaxed and friendly bistrot is the place to go for any occasion. Open seven days a week serving lunch and dinner we have something for everyone, from the two-course prix-fixe lunch for £11.95 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 £9.95. 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.

We dined here for the Menu Gastronomique in October and the service was its usual friendly self - attentive but not pushy. This menu show excellent value for money and delivers reliably good food. Wine choice from a bin end was a great choice and we had to remember that following it up with a second bottle and also driving would be unwise - wish it was in walking distance! We will certainly be back before long.

An early evening meal, before the theatre, was swiftly and politely served but fell short of the standard we have found on previous occasions. My mushroom starter and fish main course tasted rather ordinary. The music was too loud, perhaps anticipating the volume needed to be heard over a full restaurant later in the evening.

I visited this restaurant with a group.
Nice place, service and food are OK, but not so special.
I like it but had no remarkable impression.
