a good meal, excellent value set lunch. However several items on the menu were not available. No flexibility eg. no option to have creme fraiche without horseradish, One person on our table did not receive the main course she;d ordered, but was too polite to say. Friendly efficient waitress.

Dear Julie Thank you for your feedback, and on the hole you and your friends enjoyed your meals with us. We usually are quiet accommodating with request on the menu and where we can, we will without trouble take off items or change ingredients, I am sorry on this occasion we were unable to do plain creme fraiche. We hope... More

I never thought I'd write a bad review for BP but after many years, hundreds of meals and what feels like £thousands, our last visit has signalled the end of my patronage of this once delightful eatery. My wife and I share a birthday and most years take our friends to BP to celebrate. We booked the best table, a... More

Visited with friends on a Monday lunch. Very pleasant setting and very popular for lunch. Staff attentive and knowledgeable. Drinks arrived quickly and although the main courses all arrived together, we had to chase up a missing vegetable order. Everyone was happy with their choice of main and even happier with their puddings!! Delicious. Would recommend and return!

Dear Customer, I don’t usually hear that our food is overpriced. To maintain a high quality some of the items can seem overpriced but it’s that’s hardly the case. But thanks for your feedback. I will now double check and conduct a study to ensure that nothing is overpriced. And if anything is then the prices will be reviewed ASAP.... More

We have visited a few restaurants in this chain and, as always, the Leicester branch lived up to expectations. We selected a main and dessert from the pre-theatre menu for £14.95 on a Saturday evening. The fixed price menu offers a wide choice including burgers, steaks, pizza, fish and meat dishes, most cooked in a French style recipe. The slow... More

I would recommend to eat here. Be aware the service is very slow. When trying to pay its even worse, I had to stand at the till waited for good 5mins to pay. You could easily walk out without paying.

A delicious three course set meal (there is a choice of each course) paired with wine for £27.50 each. Each course was delicious, the place is lovely and the staff are attentive and friendly. We noticed more offers for set meals, including a 6 course one, and will definitely be back again.

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.
