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.
