“A most welcoming Pub Restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We had booked for 4 people at 8 pm, and were shown straight to our table. A most attentive waiter immediately asked forour drink order, and brought the wine straight away, together with a jug of iced water. The food was well presented , very tasty, and we will definately go again. A really warm venue on a very cold March night!

“New Management”

The staff from another local pub has taken over the running of this and it is now a lovely pub to visit with great food and wine and a very friendly atmosphere.
Highly recommend it!

“Celebration meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We went to The Bird in Hand on Saturday 1st Dec for a celebration meal for my in laws Diamond Wedding Annivesary. The place was very busy but very organised, the food was beautiful, well presented and well served, there were 11 of us but there were lots of groups in enjoying their evening as well as a lovely gentleman who was celebrating his 93rd birthday who invited our group outside to watch his firework display, thankyou it was lovely.
Well done Bird in hand we will be seeing you again.

“Sour faced young chef!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

It's a real shame the staff - especially the chef and bar staff who chatted amongst themselves behind the bar ignored customers and just looked fed up and cross. He refused to serve food after 2pm even though it says 'open all day'.

A young guy should know the simple things about customer service.

Food expensive and undercooked chips! Incredible. No ambience and too tight to light a fire at lunchtime.
