Have been meaning to visit for some time as this restaurant has a good reputation. Used an Amazon Local deal and enjoyed an excellent meal. Lovely presentation of delicious food and really liked the decor of the restaurant areas. Hope to go back soon.

Big drop from previous standart. The venison seems to come out from boiling water rather than cooked. The meat was just tasteless and chewy. The manager offered to take it off the bill but didn't ask if we wanted to order something instead. The sauces on the starters and other mains were lacking flavour and character. However all dishes scored... More

We have eaten at the Birch a couple of times in July. These were our first visits here and wondered why it has taken us so long to find this great eating house. This restaurant aims high and at every level it succeeds in giving a great experience. The welcome was that bit more personal, the venue is attractively decorated,... More

We have been to this restaurant countless times over the years. It never disappoints. Food is fantastic, service is great and the wine list is extensive and very reasonable. Will be visiting again very soon.

Visited last night, good atmosphere and as always pleaseant surroundings. Menu is very limited, particularly the starters. My wife and I ordered rib-eye steaks and both had to be returned, my wife's 6oz was dry and thin, and mine was really chewy. Perhaps it was just that particular cut, so I ordered the fillet steak instead....I ordered it blue, but... More

We had a very nice meal and then were offered coffee. We ordered a latte and a mocha. When the bill arrived we had been charged for three hot drinks namely a latte, a hot chocolate and an expresso. We queried the bill suggesting that other establishments (e.g. Costa) do not charge you for two hot drinks when you order... More

Lovely restaurant, not your every day run of the mill restaurant. The service is professional yet friendly and they make the extra special effort by putting a birthday card on the table and writing happy birthday o the dessert plate for my Mum. Food is excellent. It's a little expensive but that's what makes it a great place for a... More
