Oxfordshire and the neighbouring Cotswolds are such quintessentially English destinations at this time of year. My partner and I decided on a last minute short break to experience all the glorious British spring can offer but we didn't want to stay in the tourist traps. It was important we had proximity to the great city itself - Oxford but was... More

We stayed for a saturday night recently in a twin room. Room was a very good standard of decoration and a reasonable £80 including B&B. Staff immediately dealt with 2 blown light bulbs. Bathroom not quite up to the same standard, needing a new towel rail and a little repainting - but quite usable. We had a comfortable night and... More

Had heard and read good reviews so decided to give the Bird In Hand a try. It was a cold evening but as we walked through the door hoping to be greeted by warmth - there wasn't any. We purchased drinks and sat at our table which wasn't in the restaurant where others were sat but in the bar. Had... More

We were a largish group sitting down for evening dinner. We didn't use the sleeping accommodation. The meals were tasty and of good value and portion size. The bar staff and waitresses were all extremely lovely, personable and seemed to enjoy their jobs. We would definitely be going back. I only didn't give it 5 stars as I would reserve... More

Had a great evening here as part of a large party. The pub is in a great location and is rugby and Welsh themed. As my husband is a rugby fan and Welsh this worked very well! Food was good, perhaps a bit too much cream in the sauces for me, but otherwise everyone enjoyed their starters and mains. Good... More

The food is fabulous and they give a great service. The rooms are situated in a little garden next to the... More

However big your party might be, if you are organising it you want to get it right. This year I booked the Bird in the Hand Nr Hailey, Witney. It was absolutely lovely from the start.
