Culture & History

Indulge in provincial French cuisine on offer at Bistrot Pierre Restaurant, in the heart of Shakespeare Country, you'll experience excellent food at affordable prices in an attractive riverside setting.

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 confit de canard and paté de campagne.

Situated on the banks of the River Avon with a riverside setting and terrace during the summer, 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. Our lunch time prix fixe menu changes monthly and is hugely popular offering delicious bistrot dishes at exceptional value with 1 course £9.95, 2 courses £11.95 and 3 courses £13.95. In the evenings we offer an a la carte menu as well as a 2 course prix fixe early evening menu for £14.95, which is available daily from 5pm to 6.45pm. Perfect opportunity to dine early if you are visiting the RSC.

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.
