Good pub atmosphere and good food, we prefer the bar to the restaurant. Definitely an evening pub for us. Car park provides plenty of parking for this that need to travel

Was told about the Bird in Hand by our B & B host, just down the road. Did not book on a Friday night has had just arrived but was found a table. A very good menu plus specials board and a little different to the normal pub menu. Main meal was a large plate of food which was very... More

Visited weds lunchtime, car park reasonably full so was expecting a full pub. Plenty of room inside as most were in the restaurant. Specials board looked good and the menu was varied with more than 1 veggie option. We went for the tomato tart, (which was a starter) with a side of steak chips and the Pork shoulder on braised...

I visited the bird in hand this Friday just gone and it was just a fantastic experience from start through to finish! We were greeted by their lovely staff who attended to our every need, even when they were busy with other customers. The food was fantastic, I had the lemon sole and my friend had the drunken beef, full... More

Me and my partner decided to go here one week evening having been here a few times. On first arrival we walked into the bar where there were about 8 regulars muling around the bar. Its only natural for people to turn and look when someone enters the bar area but to be stared at by all of them felt... More

Celebrating a family members 65th. On first impressions it looked lovely, Sun was shining, outside the garden looked immaculate. Had our first drink at the bar, all very pleasant. We were escorted to our table...........this is where it started to go down hill. Firstly our waitress seemed uninterested in displaying any signs of customer service. We seemed a complete inconvenience... More

I took my walking group here on a Saturday lunchtime, there were 16 of us. Alex, the manager, looked after us. They were a little prescriptive as to the time of the sitting i.e 1230pm. However service was excellent and meals came out quickly and on time. We had pre-ordered before the walk. My burger with Stilton was excellent. They... More

A cosy country pub with tasty food, pleasant surroundings and good service. We went there for Sunday lunch and the pub got busy very quickly from around 12:30pm. It is worth booking as some people were turned away. My suggestion to the chef would be to increase the portion size of the lasagne(v) and savoury bread and butter pudding as... More

I've eaten here a few times now. I only visit once or twice a year and I have found that the food and service is consistently good. On one occasion it looked like we were going to be very late due to problems on the M25. I phoned ahead, and was told that even if the kitchen had closed, they... More
