Authentic French Restaurants are few and far between these days but Bistro Jacques delivers in true Gallic style. Situated in the “Old Briggs Shoe-Shop” at the junction of Pride Hill and Mardol, Bistro Jacques is perfect for shoppers, theatre-goers and business types alike and boasts The Darwin Gates on its front step.

Bistro Jacques offers a warm, inviting, friendly and relaxed service. Decor is of a classic rustic French theme with wooden furniture, candles and walls smattered with prints by French artists. Combined with the toe-tapping tunes from musicians and singers such as Edith Piaf, Bistro Jacques creates a vibrant and bustling atmosphere.

There is a good selection of “entrées” and “plats de résistance” and the menu boasts some French favourites, as well as a variety of Mediterranean dishes. The menu changes daily making most of fresh market produce. The bistro opens at 11.45pm to 4.30pm every day for the “Le Lunch Rapide” from £8.90.  Our “Pre-Théâtre Offre” 3 courses for £13.95 (Sun – Thurs, 4.30 – 7pm, Fri & Sat, 4.30 – 6.30pm).
