In late 2015, the Bird in Hand completed an extensive renovation to revive the pub to its former glory. Whether you are looking for an informal get-together or a unique dining experience we have you covered.

With a warm rustic decor, an excellent food and drink offering and an open fire, we look forward to welcoming you.

We welcome dog’s in our bar area and don’t hesitate to ask one of our friendly staff members for a treat!

Just beautiful. Wonderful service. Amazing food. We stayed far longer than our booking and we were made to feel so welcome and an added special note in the pudding for our anniversary. Lovely afternoon spent celebrating.

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Service was superb, not rushed but attending to our requests for food and drink. Food was fabulous, the chef even changed a few things on the dishes to suit our needs. Would definitely recommend and will go again. Thanks for a great evening and making us feel normal again.

The food was lovely as usual, only slight disappointment in that it was the hottest day of the year and shades over the table meant we felt a bit chilly. Minor gripe though as the food was what were there for!

Amazing food and service every time I visit.
Staff are very attentive and always spot when you have an empty glass. I've had a few dishes off their menu but the pork belly burger I had yesterday lunchtime was really special.

Great food, service and ambience. There was a live music session when we visited but this didn't detract from our visit. Very enjoyable and we would definitely recommend Bird in Hand.

The service was exceptional.
Very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
A brilliant guitarist and singer by the name of Tom Gortler in the garden added to the wonderful ambience. A perfect way to spend a beautiful summer Sunday afternoon.
