Just had the most awesome Sunday roast. Delicious roasted artichoke starter followed by melt in the mouth roast beef finished with a moorish chestnut and chocolate fondant with thyme ice cream. Great service and attention from Tom the owner- can’t recommend this place enough.

Birch is in a strange location in the middle of a residential street so you would only find it if you had a recommendation. We ordered 3 plates each as suggested and this quantity was perfectly fine. The food was excellent. I have no idea...More

My girlfriend and I popped in here on our way through Bristol, and, boy are we glad we did! The decor was minimal yet inviting, the service friendly yet professional. All the food we had was really top notch, the ox cheek croquettes were crispy...More
