We went here years ago and for various reasons have not been back since. This will now be a regular haunt, the food and service were good, some main courses were a little expensive for a pub. They also do not seem to do a set price for so many courses so the bill can mount up but eating locally... More

Excellent meal on Friday night. We ate in the bar area and both the restaurant and bar were busy but service was excellent - very friendly and attentive for such a busy evening. Food was delicious - 2 of us had the "special" sea bass with a mustard mash and creamy sauce - divine. Good evening all round. Would recommend.

Went for a anniversary meal there, lively fireplace, oldy worldy setting, food was excellent, service was first class, very relaxing, was surprised at the quantity of food, instead of leaving still feel that you could eat more actually felt very full, I had the baked crab with king prawns, very tasty. Well worth a visit

It was a special birthday party, and for the first time ever, we had all our family and our friends together. At the same time, normal service was maintained for Bird in Hand regulars, and for restaurant/bar meal customers. 30+ guests on a Saturday lunchtime was a tall order while normal service was maintained. We have NO complaints - well... More

This is a bit of a conundrum but I've given the pub 4 stars overall because of the owner's helpful and positive attitude. I had one really tasty meal (sea bass) on a very busy Friday night and one very poor one (roast beef) the following Sunday. On the Friday the pub was buzzing, there was a live band and... More

We had a really lovely evening at the Bird in Hand, they have a super-friendly and enthusiastic young team of staff who were really attentive, but without being over-bearing. When I booked over the phone we were asked where we wanted to sit, either the bar or the restaurant, I asked for a recommendation and the girl on the phone... More

Took my wife here for lunch and you have to be here at midday or you'll have to wait for a table. The food is really really good and the service is great also. I've eaten here a number of times from light lunches to full evening meals and I have never been disappointed. They're currently building accommodation so if... More

We recently held our wedding reception here and it was amazing. We have always enjoyed our visits to the Bird in Hand and therefore were confident it was a good choice but it surpassed our expectations. The warm welcome, excellent food and service were outstanding. The tables were beautifully decorated and the attention to detail was superb and nothing was... More
