New Tourism Business of the Year
... traditional tea rooms, coffee house and restaurant with a modern twist. The setting is relaxed and friendly, the service impeccable.
At Birkinshaw's we do things properly - tea served in vintage china, coffee from our hand built espresso machine, food freshly prepared from the finest ingredients. Eating and drinking at Birkinshaw's makes the everyday just a touch more special.
No time to eat in? ... get your 'Joe on the go' (or your tea) and choose a sweet or savoury something to take with it ... all homemade and using the finest ingredients.
Relax with us
Comfortably housed in an old brick warehouse, with the entrance on Ratchford Street, Birkinshaw's has retained much of the building's historic character and offers a calm and relaxing environment.
With vintage china and tablecloths, easy chairs and coffee tables, you can decide whether to linger with coffee and cake, enjoy a lovely light lunch, or meet for a cream tea with your colleagues to end the week on a high note.
Whatever you decide, you know the food and drink will be wonderful, and the ambience just right.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
