Bistrot Pierre - Altrincham
As a pioneer of great-value, authentic French cooking, the Bistrot Pierre brand is renowned for its French-style cuisine and relaxed restaurants. Each of the friendly bistrots is suitable for all manner of occasions and Cheshire is lucky to boast not just one but two Bistrot Pierre restaurants – one in a leafy suburb in Warrington and the other located in the Stamford Quarter of Altrincham. The latter is spread across two floors and has room for 170 diners as well as a bar area and outside seating. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the place with light, and the Warrington venue’s French-inspired interior echoes the brand’s roots.
The menus have been expertly crafted to ensure it covers all bases. Whether stopping by for a laid-back breakfast, a light lunch or tempting three-course feast, your food will arrive beautifully presented, freshly prepared and of the highest standard. The culinary line-up showcases French bistrot classics like steak frites and boeuf Bourguignon alongside a host of regional favourites such as confit de canard and tarte flambée. Don’t miss the eminently popular prix fixe lunch menu offering with two courses for £11.95 and three courses just £13.95.
Inspired by travels around France, the à la carte menu includes starters of salmon fumé gribiche, and homemade rabbit, chicken and pork terrine. For the main event, why not go for slow-cooked marinated pork medallions paired with Morteau sausage, caramelised apples and Dijon mustard beurre blanc, served with Provençal vegetables? Lighter dishes include whole sea bass with sauce vierge of capers, tomatoes, lemon and mixed herbs. Desserts are the pièce de résistance and include tarte au citron with raspberry sorbet, traditional crêpes and classic crème brûlée.
As you’d expect from a French eatery, a glance at the distinctive wine list reveals over 20 French wines sold by the glass. Whatever you opt for, you’re bound to find something delicious to pair with your meal.
With gluten-free dishes and a dedicated children’s menu too, a friendly welcome is extended to everyone at Bistrot Pierre.
