Booked table for 6pm but arrived early so sat outside talking. They came out and said please come in. Very friendly staff. Delish fish dishes. So impressed, coming back for family 80th birthday. Thoroughly recommended to grown ups who appreciate best ingredients, well cooked.

Hello CVB539 I have spoken to Trip Advisor informing them that as you did not enter or eat at our establishment, to award us 1 star is not acceptable and is certainly not a true reflection of a meal experience at The Birch. As we...More
