The Sycamore Inn
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The mantra at this tranquil, family-run inn is: ‘may all the guests leave as friends’. Owners Darren and Samantha Kimber are committed to providing first-class service, with every guest made to feel at home from the moment they step through the door, whether they are human or four-legged.
Located in the heart of the idyllic village of Birch Vale, The Sycamore Inn boasts beautiful rural views. If the sun is shining and you’d like to explore the area, pre-order a hamper that’s been lovingly assembled and filled with local goods. From luxury, classic and cheese to Italian or Greek, there is a hamper to suit everyone’s taste. Dine in the restaurant area, or sit overlooking Ollerset Moor from the decking in warmer weather. The menu suitably comprises traditional fare, prepared and cooked daily by the excellent head chef, Nick Barton. Expect to find delicious homemade food such as beer-battered cod, scampi, pie of the week, gammon and lasagne. Vegetarians are catered for with dishes like the roast vegetable and goat’s cheese tartlet and a wonderfully hearty ploughman’s salad. Desserts take the form of treacle sponge pudding with a dollop of ice cream, a warming homemade crumble served with creamy custard, and fl uffy lemon meringue pie – to name a few. Weekly dinner events, such as the Wednesday curry night and the Friday steak night, are popular.
We’re sure you won’t be ready to leave after your meal, so why not stay in one of the comfortable en-suite bedrooms? After a quiet night’s sleep, wake up to a delicious full English breakfast and enjoy the peace and quiet.
