Father's Day Treat

A lovely venue with attentive staff. A good set menu. excellent starter and pudding but the quality of the roast vegetables with the main course were not good. I believe because they were out of season. Overall though a very enjoyable Father's Day treat.

Three of us went here for my birthday and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is pleasant and informal, and the aircon was a welcome relief on England's hottest day for 6 years! We were served by attentive but not over-intrusive staff. The food - especially the local venison - was mostly excellent and beautifully presented. I had one of... More

Always receive a warm welcome and served drinks within moments of arrival. Very attentive, polite and professional staff. Excellent food, well presented for both lunch and dinner. Good and varied selection on both menus with additional specials advised by your waiter/waitress. Service is exceptional and staff very attentive and knowledgeable and very sensitive to individual needs. Would definitely go again.

Three of us went for lunch and the location, food and service was excellent. The restaurant is in a lovely location and the actual restaurant part (there is a bar area too) was very nicely set out and well decorated. The food was excellent and the service first class. My only negative was the prices are expensive (£35 for a... More

Recommended by staff at Centre Parcs and what a find! Absolutely first class food, just a little slow on service. Would recommend to anyone. Great for a group night out or a cosy dinner for two. Loved it

This restaurant offered a completely flawless service for a birthday in our family recently! We had a nice big round table to sit at so be could all talk and it was lovely and light unlike many dingey, moody places these days. The staff were amazing and knew the food inside out and the food itself was perfection!! I'd go... More

Warm handshake welcome from the manager. Light well laid out restaurant, spotlessly clean. Had a total of three waiting staff during the meal, two were excellent, being both really pleasant and helpful; the third was more perfunctory. I had the beef burger which was very good and came with home made onion rings (yummy!) and more importantly "proper" chips i.e.... More

Refused entry to The Birch by Mark the manager because he couldn't accommodate a table of 8 on a Saturday night in July because his regular Saturday night customers might be put out if they could not get a table.

Our table for four had an excellent meal last night: the menu was interesting, with all of us finding it difficult to chose, the food was excellent and all the waitresses were polite, attentive and timely despite the restaurant being full. The room itself was well laid out, with plenty of space between tables and nicely decorated. I would certainly... More
