We stayed recently with friends for 4 nights. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, the food was excellent, and the rooms very clean and cared for. We would thoroughly recommend the Bird in Hand Inn. ( and we didn't see Henry, the ghost!!) Jeff, Ann, Barbara qnd Frank Yorkshire

The room we usually have (no.3) is comfortable, warm and very welcoming. The food is (as always) great with plenty of choices and always well cooked... More

We have been going to the Bird in Hand for a couple of years and have always been given a lovely warm welcome. Sometimes our family group can be quite a large party at times being up to nearly 20 of us, yet we have never had any problem getting drinks or food. The food is always hot, out at... More

Our rooms overlooked the River Severn so we really enjoyed the views of the river and the beds are extremely comfortable. Bill, Steve and staff are so friendly and... More

This is a great family owned and run pub / B&B to suit all and very friendly/family orientated. I am local to the area and have enjoyed many meals here which have always been spot on! The menu is extensive and the food is hearty and traditional. Steve and Bill are very accommodating and the staff are always polite and... More
