Description: 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!

“Fantastic country pub!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

We haven't been before so thought we'd try it on our way back home after a nice day out. Found out about it on tripadvisor. We were looking for a lovely pub with some decent food and we were not disappointed! It has a lovely atmosphere and is clearly popular with the locals and those further afield. The food choice was fab with lots of traditional pub food and lots of other fancier options. Spoilt for choice! We went with steak and ale pie and the steak burger. Both were fantastic! Really good portion size. Both tasted so much better than standard pub grub. Service was great too. Really good value for money and will most deft be returning. Thanks to the team

“Top Class Desserts”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Second visit to the 'Bird In Hand' tonight. Excellent selection of real ales - guest ales are a welcome change to the 'norm'. Food is superbly presented. The desserts are a refreshing change to the shop-bought puds you normally get in pubs. I've had the tarte tatin and tonight the treacle tart. The attention to detail with each dessert is so enjoyable - home made jellies/marsh mallows/syrups - little pockets of flavor....very impressive! It's an absolute MUST to visit the 'Bird In Hand'

Fantastic dinner. Every part of the evening was amazing. Very kind people, you sense the character of a real family business. They enjoy having a restaurant. A nice location, in good weather you can sit outside. The plates are more than big enough. We had a wonderful evening. If you're in the neighbourhood we highly suggest you visit "Bird in hand".

My husband and I visited for my birthday for lunch and some drinks. Wonderful food. I had the blue cheese bread and butter pudding dish which was delicious. While my husband ordered the sizzling duck wrap. He really enjoyed the flavours. Although the main meal only comes with 1 wrap and was a little greasy. Which we thought was a little tight on portion control and the chef just needed to shake the meat with a slotted spoon or tongs before serving. However these things didn't stop us going back as everything else was wonderful. Starters were gorgeous too.
