French bistrot group

Bistrot Pierre is a restaurant chain which provides customers with great value, authentic French cooking in a relaxing, lively atmosphere. The company was established as a single franchise restaurant in Nottingham in 1994 by school friends Robert Beacham and John Whitehead.

The restaurants are based in a variety of locations from large city centres such as Cardiff and coastal bistrots in Torquay, to shopping centres in Newport and market towns like Leamington Spa. The investment from Livingbridge will accelerate restaurant roll out plans and optimise Bistrot Pierre’s existing estate.
