SOUTHPORT’S much anticipated French restaurant Bistrot Pierre has opened its doors today (17 November) following the renovation of one of the town’s most iconic buildings.
The bistrot, which brings a new lease of life to Lord Street, serves seasonal menus including confit de canard, the bestselling boeuf bourguignon maison and steak frites seven-days-a-week.
Karen Rimmer, general manager at Bistrot Pierre said: “As a Southport native I’m over the moon to be the new manager at the town’s most exciting new restaurant.
“It’s an ideal location to bring our great value, authentic French bistrot dishes and I’m confident we will grow a loyal customer base in the area. There has been a real buzz around the town in the build up to the restaurant’s opening and really I’m excited for people to try our menus in a relaxed bistrot setting.”
Rob Beacham, who founded Bistrot Pierre with school friend John Whitehead more than 20 years ago, said: “Southport is a charming town and we are looking forward to being a part of the flourishing food and drink scene here. I’m thrilled that Bistrot Pierre is able to support this thriving local economy.
“We’re really pleased to be investing in the town’s future, reviving this historic building and creating up to 50 new jobs. As part of the renovation works, we will be bringing the building’s iconic canopy back to its former glory before it is fixed back onto the external wall. This is just one example of how we maintain and complement our sites’ original features while bringing our own style to the restaurant.”
Bistrot Pierre also offers an excellent value festive menu running throughout December as well as a dedicated Christmas Day lunch menu featuring five courses for £59.95.
“Our bistrot will be the place to celebrate with friends, family and colleagues this festive season, already proving popular with many bookings being made for December,” added Rob.
