Absolutely no complaints, we booked a table around 2 hours prior, there's a lovely environment, a great atmosphere, and seriously fabulous food with top service. There's nothing to not like.... No more needs to be said really. Highly recommended.

After a long drive from Southampton, we received a very warm welcome from the host, Steve. We were running late in booking in and Steve had contacted us to inform us of the time when the meals were finishing. A very comfortable room with a great view over the River Severn and very wholesome pub food. We enjoyed our short... More

I've visited the Bird in Hand many times over the years for meals and a quick drink. The service is always friendly and welcoming. The food is excellent, with a good choice of vegetarian options, I've never had cause for complaint. This is one of a few pubs that has remained consistent with its excellent service for a very long... More

In a tired old building up narrow stairs with a good handrail we found comfortable beds, clean bathroom and Windows that opened. Local pork chop dinner very reasonable and full English breakfast served well and quickly. On the main road to the Iron bridge which was a beautiful sight. Innkeeper very pleasant and helpful.
