I've been to England three times and have stayed at four different places. This is the only one I will seek to stay at next time I go, which will hopefully be next year. It is beautiful, the food is fantastic (I had breakfasts and evening meal), the staff (and owners) are friendly, personable and really care about their guests.... More

We had our wedding reception here 14 years ago, so decided to celebrate our anniversary meal here. The staff were wonderful, so friendly and welcoming. Our table had been decorated with heart confetti and a congratulations card too. The food was first class cooked to perfection, served promptly and with a smile. Nothing was too much trouble. I can't wait... More

Stayed here overnight. First impressions were very clean and quite obvious the management cared about presentation. The food was good and I thought reasonably priced. The service came with a smile whether at the table or the bar. The rooms were excellent. Very comfortable and spotless. My only criticism would be about the cats roaming around. I don't agree with...

We visit this establishment a lot and they have recently changed chefs so some changes on the menu, but the same dishes that were on the old menu still same price, but onion ring and tomatoes taken off and you are then offered them as side dishes. Not happy with this it is still good food but really look after... More

We stayed here last weekend for my daughter's wedding which was in the village. The accommodation is wonderful with great attention to detail: very comfortable beds, well furnished rooms, lovely bathroom & power shower and White Company toiletries. I have known the Bird In Hand for over 30 years and seen it progress from a small, "spit 'n sawdust" pub... More

Received a warm welcome despite the pub being busy and we hadn't booked. All our meals were really good - plenty to eat, very well presented, tasted wonderful and competitively priced. Staff were warm, professional and offered the right level of service (attentive but not intrusive). My paella was a little less spiced than I expected but the flavour was... More

Unfortunately the quality of food has been gradually heading South over the last three months. My wife had the 'hunters chicken' and it was completely different to the first time she had it three months earlier. The chef might have been changed/left and also the bar/restaurant manager who was lovely. You must focus on quality and not GP.

We are a family run restaurant and free house in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, yet only fifteen minutes from the city of Norwich.

The ingredients for our menus are sourced locally wherever possible, we grow our own herbs, and our free range eggs are from a local farm,and we buy our fish fresh direct from Lowestoft.

Whether you are looking for a delicious traditional steak and ale pie, beer battered fish and chips (large!!) A sizzling skillet of Duck Breast with oriental vegetables and Hoisin sauce, or indeed something a little different from our evening special selection, we know you will be spoilt for choice with our extensive menu.
We also have some delicious vegetarian options to tempt you.
Oh, and try to leave room for one of Tristan's legendary desserts!

Our recently opened eight en suite luxury Guest rooms are available now at a charge of £80 per room and our delicious breakfast just £8.95.

During the warmer months, we look forward to offering outside dining, either in our gardens or on our sunny terrace, and we can now cater for larger parties, wedding receptions and celebratory functions.

We would love to welcome you to The Bird in Hand, do please come and visit us soon!
