We booked this meal on a Wednesday night for our 3rd wedding anniversary. We arrived to be shown to a table that was literally on top of another couple despite obvious tables that were empty and more suitable. The waitress actually apologised as she showed us to it, I did express that it was a `bit close' and we were... More

We booked a table for 6 (3 couples) for a 9pm meal last weekend on a Saturday night. We had arranged and booked this meal well over a month ago with Bistrot Pierre restaurant. When we arrived at Bistrot Pierre only to be told that while they had our booking recorded that they had no tables available. The manager stated... More

LBPDerby, Manager at Bistrot Pierre, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your review. I am terribly sorry for what happened on Saturday evening. Unfortunately we had a table who stayed longer than anticipated and this had a knock on effect to the later bookings. I can assure you it was not a case of being over-booked, it was an unfortunate timing issue. I am sorry that... More

Went to Pierres for a get together with work colleagues. Lovely partly rustic environment, very tastefully styled. Comfortable. Vibrant atmosphere. Great that one feels connected to the kitchen where the chefs can be clearly observed working, depending on where you are seated. Quite a wide range of foods to suit most tastes. Everything I ordered and ate From soup to... More

Not been here for years. It has had a refurbishment since my last visit which was lovely. It was a busy Friday night but the atmosphere was perfect and the staff attentive. We all had the mushroom with goats cheese starter which was delicous. The others had beef bourguion and it was nice to see that the red cabbage has... More

We eat here three or four times a year because it's reliable and doesn't throw us any nasty surprises with the quality of the food or the bill. I would tend to recommend the specials as a rule as value for money.

We went to Pierre’s last night for our anniversary meal. We’d not been for maybe a decade but kept hearing it was still a good place to eat so thought we’d give it a whirl. Well we were not disappointed! The meal was beautiful, honestly I can’t rate it highly enough. The starter was amazing, brioche with mushrooms. I had... More

The food was very nice, and caters for every one as each main option has the choice to be a small or large... More

Went here for dinner last night with my somewhat hard to please partner! He also thought the food was excellent! Praise indeed. We had the Assiette Méditerranéenne to start and the chorizo is immense!! For mains we had the Boeuf bourguignon maison and the Bouillabaisse maison. Both were excellent and the beef came with the wonderful dauphinoise potatoes and red... More
