The Birch Hotel sits just 8 miles from the centre of Manchester and is a small yet rather lovely suburban hotel. As well as being a popular location for visitors to the area wanting to stay a little further from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, The Birch Hotel is also a fine choice for dining, playing host to a delightful in-house restaurant; The Lounge, Bar and Grill. There is nothing average about the excellent modern international menu served at The Lounge, Bar and Grill at The Birch Hotel, devised by a kitchen who obviously know their stuff. The menu changes regularly, meaning return diners will always find something exciting. Some of the tantalising dishes that have been known to grace the menu include the delicious spicy crab croquettes with sweet chilli jam and watercress, along with main courses such as pork tenderloins with mixed herbs, crushed potatoes, butternut squash and beetroot or a succulent rack of Welsh lamb with herbs, new potatoes and glazed vegetables. Some things are too good to change from the menu, with fantastic desserts like the rich chocolate fudge cake, served with fresh cream, being available more often than not. The Birch Hotel is an attractive little establishment with its pretty, ornate stone fountain trickling away at the entrance. Once inside the restaurant, a modern and stylish design leads the way in the dining room. Most tables offer lovely views over the hotel's well -manicured gardens where sweeping green lawns and colourful flowers provide the backdrop in the springtime. Manchester Golf Club is just over 3 miles from The Birch Hotel making it a prime choice for keen golfers, whether they are staying at the hotel or simply enjoying a meal after a game. Popular amongst both business and leisure travellers, The Birch Hotel is a great place to dine in this part of Manchester.
