We ate here last night and had a lovely meal, no complaints, very attentive service. Value for money as well, we thought it would be really expensive but it was normal prices. The only gripe I would have is please offer other drinks other than wine.

Off the scale professionalism from the young staff here. Short review from a very happy customer. Consistent food, a nice relaxing calm atmosphere, what more could you want ? For the price it's unbeatable .

We ate at the restaurant last night. The restaurant looks very nice. It's hard to rate the food objectively because of the very poor service. Our table was booked for 7.30; three and a half hours, and only two courses, later we left the restaurant disappointed. A Desert would have been nice but we waited 30 minutes to order before...

Good choice of meals. Staff were very attentive. Excellent value for money. Only one small complaint - vegetable portions are very small. For four people it looked enough for two. Service was very good. Will certainly return..

It is with disappointment that I write this review. On a positive note, the food was well presented, tasted good and was value for money. We all enjoyed it. Our thanks goes to the chef. However, our concern arose from the front of restaurant staff's attitude towards our party. There was no justification or need for discourtesy towards us. Every... More

Dear tracyandgray Thank you for your feedback. I am glad the food and value for money were up to scratch. I am sorry that you didn't feel that the service matched. Looking at the booking notes, there is an entry that the table was required for a later reservation and that the guests (your party) had been informed of the... More

We had two meals in the restaurant on the 4th Feb. Lunch and dinner. Both were excellent. Although the restaurant was very busy were served very quickly by a charming waitress...Sophie if I remember correctly. Food was delicious and served on hot plates. My pet hate is hot food on cold plates. So 10 out if 10 there looking forward... More

Really enjoyed 3 course lunch, the venue was fully booked but service was still good and staff were friendly and welcoming. The fixed price was great value. We decided to give Stratford a try after a good experience at Bistro Pierre in Birmingham at Christmas time.

Arriving as a solo traveller, I was welcome with aplomb. Shown a lovely table and served with grace and enthusiasm. The food was delicious and filling. The menu had a wide range of choice from small plates to large plates all at very reasonable prices. Highly recommend.

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.
