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

We had the most amazing meal here the other day. If you are visiting I strongly advise you taste the pate' starter with the homemade bread, it is the best. Lovely place with friendly people.

Highly recommend The Bird. We had the most lovely meal including sizzling duck to start, lamb shanks and cheesecake for pudding. Service, food and location 10 out of 10. Will be back. The Staff Family

First time eating here in mid-July & we've been back since. Whitebait was quite superb & the desserts exceptional. Lemon balm with blood orange jelly was unforgettable. Service delightful. We will be back again.

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
