Coronavirus Closure Notice

Due to the new Government-imposed lockdown The Birch and The Black Horse will be closed for table reservations from Thursday 5th November to Wednesday 2nd December*.  The Managers have cancelled bookings during this time period and you should receive confirmation of this from Resdiary (our booking system).

Christmas Bookings

If you have booked a Christmas meal with us during this lockdown period, one of our Managers will contact you shortly to discuss rebooking for a later date.

Click & Collect Takeaway

Do not despair; You can still enjoy a delicious ‘Birch’ or ‘Black Horse’ meal in the comfort of your own home with our fantastic Click & Collect Takeaway service!

Order your meal in advance (at least 24hr before) and pick up your freshly cooked food at your pre-booked time slot.

Available Friday & Saturday 5:50pm – 8pm and Sunday 12pm-4pm

Please visit our Takeaway page on our websites for more details and to place your order.

Future Bookings

Customers will still be able to visit our website and make bookings online for 2nd December 2020 onward (subject to government guidelines and Coronavirus updates).

Please note, we cannot take reservations via telephone during this closure period as no-one will be onsite.

Gift Vouchers

We still have our gift vouchers available for you to purchase online or via email.  There is no reason to stop the gift of great food once this crazy time is over!

If you are in possession of gift vouchers due to expire this year (2020), do not worry if you have not had chance to redeem them; we will honour unclaimed gift vouchers until end of March 2021.
