Some chains do well, but on today's meal this one is a disappointment. The venue is nice. The food was ok. The service was slow. The price was reasonable but on today's experience it didn't merit some of the scores it's had so far

We decided to try the early evening set menu as we were looking for an early meal before a theatre visit, and this fit the bill. We had two courses for £14.95 (I think); I had calamare for starter and my husband had pate; both were very good. For mains, I wanted the steak frites, but had to make do... More

A lovely hustle and bustle to this great little resturant in Harrogate, with a fantastically varied menu at such amazing value, service was quick as was the food, but there was no sense of trying to clear you from your table we could have easily whiled away an afternoon there! I had the fish which was cooked beautifully.

Having eaten many times at the Nottingham restaurant plus the Leamington and Leicester ones we had no hesitation in dropping into this one during a recent short stay in Harrogate . When we entered the restaurant at around 18.30 we were the only diners in there , the staff were pleasant and attentive and we chose from the early evening... More

I visited the restaurant for lunch with a friend, and we chose the Prix fixe lunch - excellent value at £9.50 for 1 course, £10.95 for 2 courses and £12.96 for 3 courses. However, beware - this price does not include VAT which we discovered when presented with the bill. Not too big a shock when we'd only had a... More

We ate on a busy Thursday early bird session. Some old favourites and some new. I enjoyed the mushrooms on brioche followed by the haddock. Delicious food very well presented and with great service. House rose is light, dry and just as it should be!

A very good place to take children: they're well-catered for. Food here is always consistently good. The staff are friendly, although the service can be slow. Excellent value for money and a decent selection of wines make this an ideal lunch venue.

Great atmosphere, fabulous staff and a very comprehensive menu, at a reasonable price - especially considering it was Valentine's night. The staff were friendly and informative, service just right. Food to die for, especially the lamb - wonderful flavours and nicely presented. All topped off with a decent Corbieres - again at a reasonable price for a restaurant. Portion sizes... More

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. Sitting in the heart of the town centre, just a two minute walk from Harrogate Theatre and close to the bustling Montpellier shopping district. The décor is decidedly French in style, with the accent on elegant and relaxed. Our bistrot is located on the first floor with lift access and benefits from a stunning heated balcony, which is the perfect place for dining al fresco whatever the weather! Open seven days a week serving 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. We also have a bistrot in Ilkley in West Yorkshire, which sits proudly within a stunning arch-shaped building that dates back to 1861. Next door you will also find our sister pub, The Crescent Inn, which boasts 8 real ales, 15 wines by the glass, honest home-cooked food and eleven affordable boutique bedrooms.
