Some time ago a friend who lives in Woburn recommended this restaurant to me. He was spot on! Bedfordshire has lots of good places to eat but The Birch is likely my favourite. Really nice setting and very friendly staff, but the real highlight is the food. Dishes are cooked, seasoned and presented beautifully. If you want great food and... More

My wife and I spent New Year's Eve at the Birch. There was a limited 7 course menu from which we could pre-choose three of the courses from a choice of two items per course. The food was very good quality and very tasty and if it could be considered a negative, my wife found the main course and taster... More

The title tells it all really. A very good and attractive decor with plenty of room. Not the most inventive menu and I fall on the wrong side of pricing by the ounce or number of prawns - frankly just looks mean - I accept others may feel they are paying an appropriate rate for a smaller portion. My food... More

We visited for a friends birthday and were sat in a corner area next to a fire which; was lovely. The starters all sounded fantastic and between the 9 of us we tried all of them. I specifically had a the goats cheese and it was absolutely delicious. A mixture of flavours I have never tried before and also a... More

Having booked a table through their on-line reservation engine, we met close friends at The Birch for lunch on Sunday. The staff were extremely welcoming. The menu is interesting and well priced. There were several specials which were clearly explained. They were also happy to modify a couple of menu items due to our preferences. The starters were beautifully presented... More

I had starter special as a main and my fiancé had a burger. Meal was lovely and fresh. At one point I was cold and the waiter offered... More

My family usually meet up for a Christmas meal in Woburn and this year chose The Birch based on previous reviews. Unfortunately the Christmas menu wasn't on offer on Sundays which was our preferred choice of date, however the food was still good - typically Sunday roasts were the order of the day, however a couple of our party had...

My friends & I went for dinner here in mid-December for our Christmas meal. The Birch had an extensive menu with 3 courses for £30. When one of our party was running late, they kept her starter & main until she got there - we were not hurried off the table. My sea-bass was delicious. A main & starter was... More
