It has been a while since we got into our favourite restaurant, Bistrot Pierre. Our last visit was to their Weston-super-Mare branch and since the Bath branch closed after a long struggle with the Pandemic hitting the F&B sector, we finally got our chance.
On our visit to Plymouth, we looked up the Royal William Yard out of chance one evening for a much deserved sit down meal. It was just the right place to be. With so many options, it wasn’t easy to decide between them.
- The Club House
- Bistrot Pierre – French cooking [our choice]
- Le Vignoble – independent wine lounge
- Prezzo – Italian cooking
- Seco Lounge – cafe and bar serving food
- Wagamama – Asian cooking
- Wildwood Restaurant & Deli – Pizza
- The Hook & Line – Seafood
- The Shack Cafe
Bistrot Pierre at the Royal William Yard, Plymouth
After wondering around, checking out the place and taking in the scenery and views, we decided on Bistrot Pierre. We weren’t too keen on pizza, pasta or burgers and wanted a proper cooked meal. Also the restaurants are quickly becoming busy for the evening given its popularity, and we were hungry.
As with most restaurants in the area, you have a choice of outdoor seating or within the building. Given the time of day, it has become a little chilly outside so we took refuge indoor. We were quickly shown to our seat, got our drinks and food orders taken and promptly served.
Here is what we ordered and we couldn’t recommend them enough if you like meat.
Honey-Glazed Pork Medallions
With Morteau sausage, caramelised apples, Dijon beurre blanc, dauphinoise potatoes and French beans
7oz Fillet Steak
28 day prime Scottish fillet steak, with a classic red wine jus, dauphinoise potatoes and creamed spinach
For the steak, I chose fries over dauphinoise potatoes. And, it came with a giant steak knife.
Pan-fried scallops with shellfish bisque, samphire and truffle oil
Feeling like giving ourselves a treat, we ordered a third main to accompany our mains above. And, as you can see, the scallops are fat and juice with a generous topping.
