Weekend stay at the Bird in Hand as part of a family group was excellent - the rooms were all clean, spacious and comfortable, the food and ales really good, but perhaps best of all the very helpful and friendly staff who made everyone so welcome and catered for all individual needs and requests. Will certainly return and recommend without... More

Everything I have to say is positive. Lovely big, clean airy room. Free WiFi. Excellent, polite and cheerful service throughout our weekend stay. Excellent quality, choice & quantity of food. Very impressive food service, given that there was a party of 32 being served at the same time as many other tables. Excellent location for visiting Oxford & Blenheim, both... More

Rooms are plain and simple, everything works as it should, a few items could be moved more into to 2010's, ie Pine Furniture and Mattresses. The big points score is the Pub and its food, ensure you book a table!, The theme is Welsh Rugby Union, this should not put you off (unless you are a fanatic England supporter and... More

We stayed here for three nights, and to say the staff and service was "second to none" would be an understatement. they do actually make this B&B what it is. We only ate there one evening and the food was excellent, as was the breakfasts. Unfortunately a couple of things let things down, otherwise our stay would have been superb:... More

Three of us ate last night & can't fault the experience. The staff & the service were great & the meals, well, they were absolutely superb. We will be back very soon & will most certainly be singing your praises to everyone we know... thank you !

We booked to stay here on New Years Eve with friends. We have 4 children between us ranging from 2 to 10. We both had family rooms which we both said wow to as we walked into the room. It was very clean and well maintained with a powerful shower and comfortable beds. We didn't stay for the special New... More

Booked a table for 10 of us. On arrival table was laid out ready for us, Lovely atmosphere with log fire. Took a while for waitress to take our food order. Once taken we were told no Fishcakes left, so 2 of us choose something else. 10 minutes later waitress came back and told us only 2 beefburgers left -... More

Having stayed here previously, we decided to drop in for some lunch. The place is a rugby player's dream with all sorts of Welsh rugby union memorabilia on the walls. It is also very much a country pub too with lots of exposed brick and wooden beams. The food was superb, freshly cooked and great taste. As it was lunchtime... More

We recently stayed at this hotel. We've stayed there a few years previously and it was fine but standards seem to have slipped. The room we had was very tired. There was wallpaper peeling off and damp which was not ideal when my toddler suffers with asthma. The chest of drawers had 2 tubs of mini pies in one of... More
