French cuisine restaurant group Bistrot Pierre is to open its latest bistro in Eastbourne on the site of the city’s famous Wish Tower.

The tower, which was built in the early 1800s to defend against a potential invasion from Napoleon Bonaparte, will now welcome Parisian dining, with the bistro set to open in Spring/Summer 2019.

The opening on the East Sussex coastline will be the company’s 24th restaurant across the UK and its 4th bistro along the nation’s coastlines.

Rob Beacham co-owner for Bistrot Pierre, who set up the group with school friend John Whitehead, said: “We’ve had our sights set on Eastbourne for some time now so we’re delighted to have been selected by Eastbourne Borough Council to open a bistro in such an iconic site.

“Steaks-frites, boeuf bourguignon, moules marinière and crème brûlée are all very popular on our menus and we’re looking forward to bringing these dishes, along with many others to Eastbourne.

Independently-owned Bistrot Pierre, which opened its first site in Nottingham in 1994, recently launched its loyalty app which rewards customers when they spend in its restaurants.

Councillor David Tutt, leader of Eastbourne Borough Council, said: “It is great news that Bistrot Pierre will bring their Parisien dining experience to Eastbourne.  

“The iconic Wish Tower location for Bistrot Pierre will rival any other seaside restaurant in the UK for superb food and stunning panoramic views of the coastline.”
