Presentation excellent, a very good meal, fishcake very tasty, meat platter just ok, service good with attentive staff, a tad overpriced but I wasn't paying! That said I would go again.

This was a celebration dinner for three generations of my family with two birthdays and was planned and booked, with a substantial deposit, well in advance. We were not welcomed on arrival at 7.30, but shown to our table, apperatives were ordered and brought, - coats were not taken, there did not seem to be a coat rail. There were... More

We were served by 4 different staff. Two were pleasant enough but the other two were simply rude. They were doing us a favour to serve us!

20 plus colleagues and I went to the Birch for our Christmas meal, very pleased that we hadn't left it too late to book like we did last year! The pre-sales aspect was hit and miss - some emails never got answered and some got a curt, even argumentative response, so all in all not a great start. On the... More

It was Friday and the restaurant seemed to be full, and the service was good. The staff were very friendly from welcome to departure. The menu choice was pleasantly different from the usual pub fare. My starter of Oxtail and Apple Terrine was fine. My main course of Salt Beef Hash was unfortunately too dry. The Sustainable Beer Battered Fillet... More

My family and I took my mum here last night (14/03/15) for an early Mother's Day dinner. We've never been here before and made or decision via the trip advisor reviews. Well.....we were not disappointed! I submitted the booking via the website and very quickly after was called by the manager Mark. He could not seat us at the time... More

Our party arrived in two cars. I arrived after the rest of my party. When pulling into the car park I was met with a man in a HiVis uniform and police type chevrons on his jacket. Turns out he was only there as security/parking attendant. He told me, he was going to put me over there and pointed somewhere... More

Came here for Sunday lunch. Party of three. Booked in advance, which is best as it is busy, 150 in on the day we were there. Very welcoming, friendly and well dressed staff. Service excellent, despite being so full. Good menu, adequate to choose from. Starters excellent. Main course, we each had a different roast dinner - good portions, a... More

This is a lovely restaurant with excellent food. We had a lovely pre Christmas dinner with friends and it was delicious. We had to choose each course in advance and were not disappointed when we received each course……we had all forgotten what we ordered! The ambience is pleasant and the staff are friendly and professional. Excellent for Sunday lunch too.

A very attractive country pub. Top quality service and top quality food, even had a birthday card waiting for my wife. This was my second visit here and will certainly not be my last.
