What a wonderful place. Lovely friendly welcome, stayed with girlfriends and we had a great evening meal (shame the menu was so tatty, could do with sprucing up a bit!). The food was excellent, the service was too. Our room was spacious, quiet, bed was very comfortable and room was clean. Bathroom did not seem quite as clean as sink... More

Situated just outside Witney on the B4022, this well kept hostelry never fails to please. Immaculately maintained, serving healthy portions of traditional fayre. Great, friendly staff, large secure car park. There is a Welsh Rugby Theme and quirky notices around the inn, well worth a detour for a relaxed enjoyable meal.

Easy to check in and friendly staff. Room 17 upstairs clean,quiet and away from the road. Difficult to find sat nav was an issue and apparently quite common. Not far from Hailey village travelling on the B4022. Car park beside Inn. Good overnight stay.

Stayed for 3 nights with my dog when visiting Blenheim Horse Trials. Good location for the venue, only 8 miles. Staff very friendly only fault being they would pet my dog. Food, full English breakfast meant I didn't have to eat until the evening. Evening meals were also large on portion sizes. Free wifi in my room was a pleasant... More

We were accommodated by the Bird in Hand for a surprise birthday party. Booked weeks in advance we ended up with a delightful room to ourselves and on request, a stunning birthday cake for the birthday girl! 20 of us had lovely food, some from the specials menu and we were all happy diners! Delightful staff - I highly recommend... More

Lovely friendly pub with fantastic rooms set in an outer courtyard. Beautiful setting not too far from Witney and approx 20 minutes from Oxford. The pub is wonderful. We had dinner there and the food and service were excellent. Breakfast is also served in the pub and it can not be faulted. A perfect place to stay and enjoy the... More

A real find - close enough to the Cotswolds and Oxford. Great rooms, fabulous pub. Lovely menu and very friendly staff/owners. A separate area for accommodation. Huge carpark. Easy to drive to the Pear tree park and ride to get into Oxford. Great area for a base. Would definitely recommend. Dog friendly too.

This is a period Cotswold pub with 16 purpose built rooms in an annex around a central courtyard. Nice setting with gardens and ample parking. There is a bar and restaurant, the breakfast particularly good whatever you want cooked to order included in the price. The rooms are spacious and ok not quite up to 3 star chain hotel standard....

Rather disappointed, went for a Birthday celebration last night, not the best! Menu hasn't changed for years! Very average food, nothing special, over priced for basic food. The pub is lovely but needs to up its game as there are so many better places to eat in the area.

My husband and I stayed at the Bird in Hand Inn overnight as we were attending a wedding locally. From the minute we arrived until we left our experience was excellent. Every member of staff we met was helpful, polite and kind and the service was just great. We were very impressed with our room (Room 5) which was like... More
