Just been for a Sunday dinner here. The food is amazing no complaints there. But the service is shocking. Ruff looking staff. We finished out meals and went to order some deserts the man behind the counter said we could sit on a table just at the front. A staff member stormed over to us demanding that we moved from... More

We live local to Birchwood Farm and if it delivered nice food it would be brilliant. Unfortunately the food is not good. My mother had a still frozen roast potato from the carvery. I didn't think this would be possible but it was. The children's play area is very small. They have a cake away which is supposed to be... More

We sat down near the entrance with our 7 month old child, to then me rudely told that we can't have him in this area, as if it was a great inconvenience to them.. (4PM and the pub was... More

Had the carvery. Vegetables grey and over cooked, meat likewise. Friend had hunters chicken, meal came with a huge unappetising splodge of thick barbeque sauce dolloped on top of it. This pub seems to go in for huge helpings of food with no thought to quality or appearance. Can imagine that people with young families will come here because it... More

I visited here during the half term break with my family and sat round near where the children's play area is. Although the children's play area is fantastic - play stations, Xbox's etc and soft play areas too, the area in which it was in, was roasting hot. This was despite the air conditioning being on. There was a 45... More

Me and my husbands family often visit this restaurant when we are up North. It's a big restaurant and has a really reasonable priced menu. There is always something new to try. Alternatively you can always go for the carvey which has never disappointed. There is a good sized play area for children under 5, although children up to 8-9... More
