Leicester, our third bistrot is situated in the heart of the city on Millstone Lane.

A charming building originally built by a late Victorian wine merchant who had vines carved to the front facade.

Today the building has eye-catching lilac art nouveau wooden mouldings to the outside, the interior is bright and contemporary yet still warm, and the walls are adorned with hand painted murals that give diners something extra to talk about.

8-10 Millstone Lane, Leicester, LE1 5JN.
Tel: 0116 262 7927

General Manager Tom
Tom started out as a waiter when our Sheffield restaurant opened in 2008 where he had just spent a year working in Rochester, New York, at the renowned Old Toad Pub as part of a degree in Hospitality and Events Management.  After finishing his studies in Sheffield, Tom was promoted to Duty Manager and moved to Leicester.  A years break from Le Bistrot Pierre was spent opening new restaurants for Carluccios and working for Jamie Oliver.  Tom returned to Le Bistrot Pierre in 2012 and shortly took over as General Manager.

Head Chef Gautam
Our Leicester head chef Gautam began his career in Bahrain working in an American-style steak house.  This was the start of an exciting career spanning the globe as he went on to work for Carnival Cruise Line and travelled all over the world before coming to the UK.  He joined the Bistrot Pierre family in 2012 as Sous Chef at our Stratford restaurant, hitting the ground running in one of our busiest kitchens.  We quickly noticed his passion and flair and he was promoted to Head Chef at our Leicester bistrot in summer 2013.
