The atmosphere in the restaurant is great, and the food is fantastic. The lunch menu is well worth the money and the dinner menu is always seasonal. They gave me a card when I came for my birthday and the overall ethos of the restaurant is lovely. Only tiny downfall is some restaurant staff members can come across a little... More

A pleasant meal for my birthday. Staff were very friendly and took the time to recognise the occasion which was great. Food was ok although not really the fine dining event we expected based on earlier visits. Nonetheless, the restaurant was full and there was a great atmosphere. A good evening and thank-you.

With twenty of us I liaised with the restaurant and guests beforehand and everyone chose their meal before the day - with only my... More

We've eaten regularly at the sister restaurant, The Black Horse, and decided to try out the Birch. We weren't disappointed. Great service and fantastic food. I agree that there are cheaper places to eat but you do get what you pay for and the Birch is definitely worth a visit.

Having been to its sister restaurant, The Plough, many times we thought we would try The Birch at Woburn. The restaurant, at lunchtime mid-week in late August, was almost full so they must be doing things right. We were glad we had booked a table beforehand. I had the grilled sea bass fillet with new potatoes and a tomato salad... More

Took friends in July and noticed (granted this was at the late end of an extended Sunday Brunch session) some deterioration in the overall standard of food. Service remains friendly and welcoming. But, if they are going to offer lunch on the late side, they need to keep the kitchen up to the mark on performance and delivery. So the... More

Let me start off by saying it is not cheap (£45-£50 a head including some alcoholic drinks) but definitely once of those you get what you pay for restaurants. Set in a lovely location the food is in my opinion up to Michelin restaurant standard and has a lovely setting in the countryside. The food obviously has the finest ingredients... More

Outside it's a traditional country pub; inside, it's more like a London posh restaurant. Service is classy and attentive, good food & ales
