OUR MENU AT BIRCH
Our menu features primarily locally grown produce and changes to suit what what our growers and producers are excelling in at any given time.
Our chefs, Ben Bamford and Daryl Laver, create every dish to highlight taste, feature local produce where possible and demonstrate creativity.
