in 1 of Southport's most iconic buildings Photographs by Patrick Trollope.
ON 17 November 2017, the much
anticipated French restaurant Bistrot Pierre opened following the renovation of
1 of the Town's most iconic buildings. Don't worry, the Victorian boulevard's
canopie will be retuning very soon, as its still being restored. The bistort,
which brings a new lease of life to the most iconic part Lord Street, the
Monument, is now open 7 days a week, serving seasonal menus including:- Confit
