I was delighted with this b&b. I don't eat breakfast so I gave it a miss. My room was great even had a fridge so I could keep my drinks cool overnight for my onward travels. The staff are lovely and hard working. This was very good value and much appreciated.

Easy way to enjoy friends and have a lovely fish and chips. Self serve purchase at the counter, then a waiter delivers the food to the table. Great for groups

I've just moved in locally and had a couple of friends pop over so we popped down for a meal. Great value and plentiful amounts of food. Nice surroundings and very pleasant young lady, I believe called Tiffany served with a smile. Keep it up folks 😀

I liked it and wife loved it, her first pub. Sunday special of roast beef was very good, cut beef with my folk and Yorkshire pudding was very good along with mash potatoes, surprised they also served a portion of roast potatoes that were right on. Beers included very cold Coors(why USAF pilots were there) and several local brews. They... More

We went out for a work dinner for 7 people and found this place. We were able to choose what we wanted from a wide menu. Special offers on certain items of menu which was a great bonus. Portion sizes were quite big so there wasn't room for pudding. All tasted fresh and Food came quickly and was well presented.Drinks... More

Nothing to brag about here at the Bird in Hand. Average Pub Food. If you are going for a pint great place to go to, if you are looking for a lunch or dinner place look somewhere else.

Imagination bypass, catering for people who would like Bernie Inns, Hungry Horse, Toby Inn, etc etc. I'm sure you get the picture.

We booked through Booking.com who were helpful, we requested a family room, but none available so asked for two rooms together, this request hadn't been passed on and on arrival we had rooms next to each other but being motel style, you had to go outside. The second room had a shared 'front door' with another room, so we asked... More
