This new French bistro, “Bistrot Pierre”:https://bistrotpierre.co.uk/locations/southport, sits in prime position on the corner of Lord Street and Chapel Street, the former location of the Russell and Bromley shoe shop. Its Victorian architecture helps to add old world charm to the restaurant’s vibe. The mural on the back wall also harkens back to Southport’s past: a picture of the old sea bathing lake and pavilion on the front. It is a lovely restaurant with lots of space, a tin ceiling and great service.
I tried it out a few months ago with some family and a friend and it scored high with all of us. From the décor to the atmosphere to the food, it was a hit. We had a window seat one lunch time and I’m sure we’ll be back. For two in the party, it was already a return visit.
My uncle chose the three course lunch for £13.95 and the three ladies had the 2 courses for £11.95 – a main and sweet of course. The fresh French bread and butter to start reminded us of being in Paris. My uncle selected the soup of the day which was tomato. For our mains he and I chose the beef bourguignon with frites. My aunt chose the chicken and our friend chose the salmon. For the sweet the ladies chose the crèpe with apples and rhubarb with vanilla ice cream and my uncle chose the crème brûlée. It was all delicious!
I see on the website that some of these dishes are no longer on the menu and others have been added. There are two dozen locations around Britain so if you like French food check out the website to see if there’s one near you.
