I have to say I was disappointed with the food at the restaurant at Stratford. I have visited other Pierre Bistrot restaurants and felt that the food was not as good at this one. I hate to complain but as you can see from the photo, there was very little on my plate when I started to eat, it was... More

Tables need an overhaul, a good clean and polish would help. The decor in the conservatory needs refurbishment and at £19.50 for breakfast it does not offer good value.

We have dined at the Bistrot Pierre before and were looking forward to another visit. We were not disappointed!! Great staff, good choice, excellent food, comfortable wine list - great evenings. Pre- theatre menu excellent value. Loved the baked Camembert as a starter for two. Here's to the next time.

The location of this restaurant is slightly off the main tourist track but on the other side of the river from the RSC worth a detour. Staff were all welcoming and attentive, food well prepared and as expected from this small chain. We enjoyed a pre-Theatre menu which was good value.

I booked the table in advance as I was expecting Stratford to be busy on a very sunny Saturday. That was easy peasy...all online.

Delicious meal, very enjoyable. Great menu. Service a little confused when our mains were brought out before starters but this was quickly rectified without a fuss and overall the meal was good value , I would happily return in the future. Convenient location for the centre of Stratford and the RSC.

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.
