An exciting blend of the finest dishes here in Bishops Stortford


Pircio is a family run establishment. With over 25 years of experience in the catering industry we always do our utmost to ensure that our customers feel part of the family. Our friendly staff aim to provide attentive dining service and satisfaction throughout the dining experience.


Pircio is the result of a lifelong passion for food and family. Our intentions are to create a restaurant which we can enjoy; an environment that is not only a considered choice for both its food and design, but one that has a personality and identity.


At Pircio we strive to make dishes that fulfill a true Italian’s most essential senses – exceptionally tasty yet simple food, beautifully presented in comfortable, contemporary and stylish surroundings.


All our dishes are passionately crafted to give our customers a range of authentic and traditional flavours, created with both the style and ‘amore’ that only a family run establishment can deliver.


Our natural ingredients are sourced from Italy interpreting dishes from Tuscany, Puglia, Sicily and Sardinia. We are proud to use only the finest olive oil in all our recipes.


Our reach further extends into the Mediterranean with influences creating dishes with bold, yet clean and distinct flavours.

The History

Originally built in 1906, Drill Hall represents one of Bishop Stortford’s memorials to the famous Cecil Rhodes. He was the first chairman of diamond company De Beers and politician after whom the former Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in southern Africa was named.

With so much history reflected in the architecture of the building, our aim was to keep as many of the original features as possible, whilst adding our own modern twist. The design reflects our contemporary taste whilst still offering a context of comfort and tradition. Our main restaurant has seating areas that are all slightly different in design and which can be customised to fit in with customer needs.

Our spacious mezzanine floor is located at the front of the restaurant; encased by glass-walls this space offers a panoramic view of the restaurant in all its splendor. This space is available for private dining, meetings or functions.
