Not wishing to spend longer in the Pelican inn than we had to, we went for a pint to the "bird". How lovely! Good beer, nice service and a lovely garden to sit in. Saw some food coming up and that looked good too. Made us wish we hadn't booked for a meal at the Pelican. Just a pint and... More

The service here is great - they really do make you feel welcome and go out of their way to make sure you are happy - even when the tables are full and service must be pretty manic! The food is very good - not wonderful (understandable considering how many diners they are catering for!) but you wont come away... More

Real pub atmosphere but it has a great menu, so much choice and all cooked fresh to order. Plenty of parking. Made to feel welcome.

We had some family up from London and went here for a meal, the food was fantastic & my brother in law who is not easily impressed when it comes to food, was raving about the quality of the food. We both had the Devon Crab & Coriander fish cakes, it was absolutely amazing. I love this place & will... More

We dined here on the evening of the 12th of June. Service was a tad slower than we would have liked, and the restaurant was not busy, but the bar area was, so perhaps they need to juggle staff better. However the meal we had was first rate, and very hot, so well worth the wait. Dessert was no different,... More

We haven't been here in years, but stopped off here on our way home from shopping in the city, on the off chance they might have availability and something other a roast of carvery on offer. We were really pleasantly surprised. The owner greeted us like old friends and instantly found us a choice of two tables. Bar service was... More

Went to the Bird in Hand late in the afternoon with friends after our country side walk, the staff are friendly and polite, there is a specials board, varied meals to choose from the menu all at reasonable prices, enjoyed by all. Would recommend.

Lovely venue. Superb food. Perfect hosts. Can't get any better than that! You can sit inside in one of numerous rooms. Or outside in the lovely gardens. Great way go spend a Sunday lunchtime. Just try it for yourself. Be warned the Puddings are mmmmmm!
