Bistrot Verite opened in April 2009 fulfilling Marc Verite’s dream to own and run a small family rustic french bistrot.
Marc was introduced to good food from a young age as his father ran Claudes Patisserie in nearby Churchtown village and fell in love with food and became passionate about cooking.
In 1988 Marc worked at Paris-House in Woburn and at Northcote Manor in Blackburn before travelling over to the Dordogne region of France and learning different skills in Patisseries, Charcuteries and various restaurants including Le Vieux Logis in Tremolat.
Returning to England Marc met Michaela and they were soon off again this time to Belgium where they both worked in various restaurants and enjoyed “moules frites” on their days off.
In 1995 they returned to Southport, and Marc got the opportunity to be involved in the opening of the “Warehouse Brasserie” where he spent 13 fantastic years with a great team of people helping the restaurant achieve many accolades.
By 2008 Marc and Michaela felt it was time to go it alone and two years on their dream has come true with the whole family helping in the bistrot (Claude making sweets, Jacques helping in the kitchen, Charlie helping out front and Louis drinking all the J20s!). They also have a great team of professionals in the kitchen who are always striving to improve the food served. In the restaurant there are helpful, friendly professional staff who will help you relax in this simple, laid back, homely bistrot.
