Visited Birchwood Farm on a couple of occasions and yet to have a bad experience. The portions are huge (particularly the desserts!) so no chance of going hungry, and the quality doesn't suffer as a result (can highly recommend the 'farm burger'!). The staff are friendly and welcoming, the service is quick and as parents of a 7 month old... More

We've been a few times and never had a bad experience to be honest. It's nice for our daughter to be able to play whilst waiting for food. The food is always nice and good value. The fact that it is usually very busy speaks volumes in my opinion.

We called in last night for a meal with the kids. It was very busy. Starters were lovely. Nacho platter to share, prawn cocktail, garlic mushrooms, pate & toast. One slight niggle...they do give you a generous helping of pate, but just 1 slice of toast, which isn't enough for all the pate. Mains, 2 surf & turf (rare) 1... More

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
