Birch & Barley: great food and an amazing selection of beers


Beer, beer and more beer: the choice is astonishing.

Birch & Barley carries 500 beers from around the world, with 50 or so on tap at any given time. But beer is not the only speciality of this restaurant. The food is superb, and the portions are huge. Try the salads, burgers, and pasta, or tuck into the excellent foie gras.

A tasting menu is available, but tables often aren't: this is a very popular spot, especially in the evening or for Sunday brunch. Soft lighting, cosy booths and red brick walls : the décor is resolutely American and sometimes a little noisy.
