Piste Wine Bar & Restaurant
  • About Us

Piste Wine Bar & Restaurant opened its doors in late September 2010 on Tarporley’s bustling High Street after an extensive refurbishment of a building, the roots of which famously or infamously are set in wine, food and character. Piste is run by brothers-in-law James Hughes and Paul Bebe. Both have worked in hospitality from a young age. Paul found his passion for cooking at the age of sixteen and has developed his love for fresh quality ingredients ever since, both locally and in Covent Garden. James, having worked in the hospitality industry from the age of fourteen and gone on to study law at university realised that it was this industry that really inspired him.

The family connection inspired a dream with a focus on quality, service and value. This is something that we strive towards at Piste and whether it be a glass of house wine, a pint of locally produced ale, a bottle of Bordeaux, homemade breads and olives at the bar or sirloin steak on the bone in our restaurant or any combination of these we aim to provide a relaxed, enjoyable environment with an emphasis on value and quality. The products we sell are all individually selected and we try to source as locally as we can without compromising on quality. We have found specialist suppliers for our menu from England, Scotland and Wales and our wine list has been handpicked from around the globe. Our team here at Piste is made up of individuals who also have a flair and passion for food, drink and all things hospitality to help you enjoy your experience with us.

The interior design was co-ordinated by Lucie, Paul’s wife and James’ sister, with an emphasis on the family’s love for all things alpine, the lifestyle, atmosphere and chic, to create a comfortable informal venue to enjoy either a glass of wine with friends, nibbles and drinks or a celebratory meal, pulling out all the stops.

So whatever you are after we hope you can wine, dine and unwind with us here at Piste
