We normally have amazing meals at the Birch but last Saturday the restaurant was busy, we had to wait for drinks quite a while. Additionally, the soup ordered was not onion but mushroom, we hVd made the waitress aware. The desserts were not great, the chocolate tart was quite hard to eat, was very bitter and hard. The Irish coffee was not up to the usual high standards. Overall we had a nice meal but it wasn’t the usual Birch excellence, considering we paid £110 per couple.

We visited The Birch for our 49th Wedding Anniversary.my husband had fillet steak which he thoroughly enjoyed. I chose the trio of lamb and sadly I found it very disappointing, it was very tough and difficult to cut and not a lot of flavour, I mentioned this to the gentleman who collected our plates but no response to my comments.

Enjoyed our anniversary lunch (did not advise of the occasion so did not receive any special treatment). Would prefer more vegetarian options. Did find the price of a glass of wine rather expensive as well as the steak prices although it was very well cooked. Will possibly return at some point in the future.

I wasn't thrilled with our table ...next to 2 very hot radiators which we had to turn off. Also men of our party had trouble getting their legs under the table! My duck was missing the advertised buttered leeks. However overall we had a pleasant time, service was very good.

Very disappointed that the week following a meal at The Birch demanded so much of my time and effort: We invited friends to celebrate my birthday saying it was our treat. After the meal, our friends insisted on paying half of the bill; we were told to ''round it up'' (significant later) for the sake of ease. When offering to treat friends, one does not start to question the bill - which we thought was rather steep! As the bill was not returned with the receipt, we made enquiries. It transpired that we were charged for eight random main courses instead of the four we had. Too many emails and phone calls were required to fix this error as The Birch was very careful not to give us a penny more than they overcharged us - no rounding up for convenience this time! Because of this attitude, I pointed out that a tip on the larger amount would have been greater, so that needed to be added on to the refund too. Their response was that I would have to ask my friends what tip they gave!!! They weren't going to part with £3 - £4 without proof! After 15 emails and 3 phone calls (during which I expressed my displeasure and received a perfunctory apology), my birthday memory is thoroughly spoilt. I received a call to check that the money is in my account - the overcharged amount of £68.80 plus the extra tip amount - to the penny!! No gesture of goodwill for all the time and effort I have had to put into it as a result of their error! (How I begrudge the time wasted even now, having to write this, two weeks later!) Such a shame that this year's birthday memory needs to be discarded.

Hello Cheryl I was disappointed to read your posted review, especially as I had spoken to you personally on the telephone regarding the mishap with your bill. I had thought (obviously wrongly) that we had amicably resolved the matter to your satisfaction. I can assure you that I do not offer perfunctory apologies and I was sincere in my apology. I was also surprised to read that you had sent 15 emails and 3 phone calls to The Birch. I have investigated this and we only have on file 7 emails from yourself i.e. 1st email - informing us of the overcharge 2nd “ - blank 3rd “ - informing us that your bill was now correct but you would now require a refund of £3.50 for the tip element which could be paid by bacs, credit card or a cheque. It was your suggestion that we check your friends’ receipt to see if they had left a tip. 4th “ - Informing us of a convenient time to call 5th “ - An apology from yourself for being rude to our co-ordinator on the telephone. 6th “ - A repeat of the above apology 7th “ - Informing us of the time to contact you. It is a shame that you now feel you must discard your birthday memory as I understood during our conversation that you had enjoyed your meal with us. I would be very happy to discuss this further with you. Jim Campbell MD

We came here as a family as part of our daughters 18th birthday celebrations. We found the service to excellent, attentive, not intrusive and the quality of the food to be of a very high standard, both in the preparation, taste and presentation. We will be back.
