We spent one night here with family to celebrate our wedding anniversary, our first visit here and we were not disappointed. It is in a very nice location, close to Witney, Blenheim and Bladon etc. Our room was very good, clean comfortable and spacious. We spent time during the afternoon in the bar socialising with family and had a very... More

We were driving around the country and the clock had turned noon, so my friend and I decided to pull in for some lunch in a delightful little place called "The Bird in Hand". There was adequate room for parking. The layout of the restaurant was very tidy and spacious, and we were greeted as soon as we entered the... More

We stayed there for one night in July whilst we visited the Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford this year. The guesthouse is adjacent to the public house and restaurant and is set in a quiet lane away from the town. It is a well presented business with a large car park. We stayed in a large room on the...

Stayed here for a family wedding. The accommodation is set in a seperate courtyard behing the pub/restaurant. As the wedding party took up pretty much all the rooms it was pefect for the families to interact and the kids to play together in the enclosed garden area. The staff were very helpful, providing extra beds in rooms for children etc.... More

I will be returning to the area in the future so on return will definitely book here again. Great staff and beautiful surroundings. The Welsh pub theme was a wonderful touch for my welsh friend and the court yard the rooms overlook was stunning. I would highly recommend to anyone and if in doubt then doubt no more, book now...

Nice and clean rooms, could do with upgrading as they are now looking a little bit 80's. Food in the restaurant was nice and plentiful, especially the lamb shoulder which would serve a family of four! The staff were nice and friendly and attentive. Good value for money. Ideal for a stopover.

Like a lot of pub/hotels, I wish there was aircon or fans in the room. Other than that, nothing to complain about here. July 2015, visited during one of the hottest periods on record. This only compounds my issue that staying cool without fans or aircon in such heat is virtually impossible. Should be standard issue. Right, The Bird in... More

The setting in a hamlet with fields red with poppies across the road was lovely. The car park was large with only a short walk to our room in a courtyard just yards from the pub. Our twin room was large, clean and comfortable as was the bathroom with the added bonus of having windows on three of the walls... More

I am sorry to say we didn't experience the wonderful service other reviewers did. Very upset to have an unpleasant altercation with them, after complaining we had to wait 25 minutes for breakfast despite advising we needed to be a way fairly quickly as we were working at a local show when we first ordered and then after having to...
