“Good option for food and beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

This restaurant is a fine option for a meal during the lunch break (very convenient for those working/stationed at Mildenhall) or a beer after work; however, I think there are better options if you are willing to drive into Mildenhall or Lakenheath. My husband and I met two new friends here for dinner and I had a steak. It was average - not bad, by any means, but nothing to write home about. My husband ordered BBQ flat bread, but received some sort of fried chicken dish on flat bread, but he enjoyed it. The menu looked like an American diner menu.

The beer was great and everyone who worked there was extremely nice. The food was served at a reasonable time and besides the entrée switch-up, we had no issues. This is a great option for food and beer, but if you're looking for something a little more "special" or cultural, I'd go into town. However, if you'd like some more American options for entrées and such, this is a good choice.

“Fish & Chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

A staple if you're TDY to Mildenhall AB! Have been to this restaurant several times. The beer is delicious and the fish & chips are very good.

“Average Bar Scene but Quite Nice for Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

I was stationed at RAF Mildenhall and the close proximity of the Bird made it quite appealing for a quick bite to eat or a nice sit-down place for a beer with some friends. The staff were quite prompt with service when it wasn't busy but it was always quite busy when we were there. Overall, the food was nothing to write home about but it would suffice for a last minute decision and the beer was always good.

“Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Lovely pub, with a great menu, scampi and chips can be recommended. Very friendly staff and busy on a Sunday so worth booking in advance for a table. Plenty of space inside and outside for when the weather is nice.

“Poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

We were camping near by decided to have a meal out we had been there before and were pleasantly surprised that it had been refurbished,it all looked very clean and modern.we ordered our drinks,they had a good range of beers and bottled ciders,we ordered our meal i had the steak sizzler which was ok but the other meal which was surf and turf was awful the steak was full of fat, we then ordered desert which took 45 mins to arrive.the food experience was a shame as all the staff are friendly and helpful.
