Le Bistrot Pierre group to open in Bath

Le Bistrot Pierre group to open in Bath

French brasserie-style group Le Bistrot Pierre is to open a new site on George Street in Bath next month.

The site will be set within a traditional Georgian townhouse whose shop-front and annexe area were added in the 19th century, in a design that has created a large, open street-level space.

The group has worked with town planners and building specialists, along with Devon-based architects Gillespie Yunnie, in a bid to ensure the development respects the property's original architecture, and it will have four distinct areas, including the rear section, which is set to house a theatre-style kitchen, and a dining room retaining the layout and period features from the original building.

Co-founder of Le Bistrot Pierre, Robert Beacham, confirmed that the group had been looking for a site in Bath for a while.

He said: "Each of our bistrots is styled a little differently to complement the building it is in, so I can't wait for us to open here…Customers can expect the same personal, attentive service and high quality French cookery."

Bistrot Pierre focuses on dishes based on typical provincial ingredients from France, such as the St. Marcellin cheese from Isere, the "Label Rouge" sausage from the Beaujolais region, and Bayonne ham from Basque.

The group has 13 sites overall, including Bath, in places such as Torquay, Cardiff, Derby, Ilkley, Leicester and Sheffield, and in late 2013 announced plans to expand its estate, with an statement from December 2014 confirming plans to open three within the next 12 months.
