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.
Head chef Ben Bamford creates every dish to highlight taste, feature local produce where possible and demonstrate creativity.
GROWER’S DINNER MENU
Our menu changes frequently – this should be used as a guide only.
Currently demand is very high, we are booking out a number of weeks in advance and currently only open for dinner on Friday and Saturday nights, intermittent Thursday nights plus one lunch service each month [see whats happening page]. We have some strict conditions of entry, ensure you review these at the time of booking to ensure we remain operating as safely as possible.
