A friend and I always return to The Birch when she is in Milton Keynes. We had a most enjoyable lunch with excellent service and good food. The cod in my fish and chips was perfect. Just cooked, moist, falling apart in flakes and piping hot. Served with their famous chunky chips which, like the fish batter, were crisp and... More

Went there in January for a Birthday lunch. Food was good and generous portions, excellent draft beers, wine list reasonable price. Obviously popular with locals. Useful car park around the back. Hard not to like the place- and we all liked it.

I am a big fan of the Birch and always save this place for special occasions. My boyfriend booked a surprise meal here for Valentine's Day and as usual we were not disappointed. The guys at the Birch really made a lovely effort by decorating the restaurant with flowers, hearts and balloons, which I thought was a lovely touch, also... More

Popped into the restaurant for lunch it was full of companies having their Christmas do's. The staff were very friendly and managed to fit me in. I only had the main course venison,which was cooked just right medium rare.even though they were very busy with new customers arriving all the time. I felt under no pressure to leave.
