We have enjoyed many special Birthday meals at this lovely Restaurant. The interesting and varied menu is always fresh and we never have any difficulty finding delicious food at a reasonable price. Looking forward to renewing our acquaintanceship with this fabulous Restaurant and its charming Owners later this Summer

Fantastic restuarant, lovely food, fabulous staff and chilled atmosphere. We are regular customers and hope this restuarant so soon reopens. It closed in September 2015 due to illness. Hopefully all is now well, and we can enjoy fabulous food etc once again.

The Birds Nest is a lovely restaraunt, the food is of a good quality, and the presentation is great. It can be a bit pricey to eat there on a regular basis, but is supberb for that special occasion. But we do recommend it.

Been trying to contact them, but no reply. A friend told me it is closed indefinitely due to a family illness. Perhaps you could confirm.
