My Mum and I came out for a long overdue mum/daughter time meal out and we couldn't have asked for a better evening. The staff were wo helpful and friendly, the atmosphere was great, all covid guidelines were adhered to without being 'in your face' and the food was yummy (the best chips I have had in years!!!) This pub is an absolute gem on every level and we will definitely be coming more to the Bird In Hand more often. Looking forward to trying their Sunday Lunch! For anyone who is concerned about going out due to the current covid situation, I can reassure that all the staff have clearly worked so hard to make the pub a safe place for everyone with distanced tables, hand sanitizer stations throughout the pub, a one way walking system throughout and the waiting staff worked very hard to keep their distance when delivering the food etc, without it being 'too much'. I would highly recommend this local gem of a pub to everyone.......I can't wait to go back!
Excellent food, excellent service, lovely waitresses, lovely beer garden. Will always go again!
Amazing food as usual and the restaurant has paid great attention to social distancing and safety measures. Lovely team members who were very helpful and such a great meal
Went on a Tuesday, with government eat out offer I had three courses and two pints of Guinness for £22!
Sat in the garden, sun was shining (not the pubs doing but it was mention worthy!) and food was fantastic (hats off to the chef)
'Social' distancing measures on point.
Absolutely recommend visiting!
As always, a friendly welcome and delicious food with a great choice of wines. Love this restaurant and garden.
Delicious food and great service
The Bird in Hand is nice enough, but for the prices they charge and for the reputation they have you would expect the food to be better. The food is OK but nothing is amazing, the menu is pretty basic too, the same sort of fare you can see in 100 gastropubs. The ambience is nothing to speak of either, just a room with a couple of tables in. I don't get the hype.
Really nice staff and the food was lovely!
Social distancing was good as well!
Lovely lunch in the garden. Vegan diet well catered for. Great food and friendly service. Covid aware but didn’t infringe on us!
Had an enjoyable lunch at The Bird in Hand, service at your table. Well organised
Delicious, calming and highly professional . Well done
Went here for the first Time as was recommended to us !
I booked online ! Lovely outside table while social distancing!!
All cleaned !!
Service was fabulous and so was the food !!
A very pretty pub will definitely go back 😊
Steak arrived raw. Had to then wait for another steak to be cooked whilst everyone was eating. £18.50 steak and was tough as old boots.
Manager offer a free kids ice cream as compensation.
They have lovely roast dinners though second or third time they haven’t cooked the steak properly.
Great service though and staff very polite
Nice place, good food. Able to sit in or out. They have put fewer tables indoors and use the menus once so lots of effort on our behalf. Service a bit slower due to Covid but order starters and mains atthe same time and it's worth the effort
Excellent food, in pleasant surrounds - delivered by a polite, considerate and helpful young lady.
The experience was a delight !
Great evening thank you Alin gave excellent service with
Sense of humour
Friendly staff. Great food. Nice relaxed atmosphere.
absolutely beautiful and such a nice vibe. Food amazing
A lovely evening out. Very well cared for and felt like a safe environment. Great service. Food very good- black pudding starter was a great hit. Desserts were lacking in choice, no fruit tarts or crumbles. All in all very happy. Thank you.
It is always a lovely evening at the Bird in Hand! Food is great (I miss the banana split though) and the staff are so friendly and welcoming!
Social distancing was observed and everything was cleaned regularly.
Outstandingly delicious food, lovely staff, fantastic service and they've retained the great vibe the Bird In Hand has always had, even with the current social distancing measures.
Fanatic food, drinks and staff. Well worth a visit 😃
Great food in s great environment as always. Thank you.
Friendly attentive service by the staff, The Cod Loin Special was phenomenal!
It was lovely to be back at The Bird in Hand, we received a very warm welcome. It was all handled very smoothly and we had a table near the door (perfect). The service was great, plenty of staff and very prompt service. The only fly in the ointment was some youngsters who were not following the guidelines and making it very difficult for the young lady who was serving them to get them to keep their distance. It was all handled very professionally and I think they eventually got the message .... Well Done to all the staff and let’s us all get out and support our local, we certainly don’t want to loose it, as it’s a great pub.
Clearly marked entrance, met by host and shown to table.
Friendly staff, prompt service, lovely food.
All in all a great experience
Think the table seats outside should have had a cover as the seats were damp and we had to get plastic bags to sit on. Liked how secluded it was though.
Ambience severely affected by social distancing restrictions but it was nice to visit and have a good meal.
Great to see the bird reopen. A lovely meal and felt very safe
Really nice evening in lovely surroundings. Food good, service could have been a tiny bit quicker but on balance an enjoyable experience
Had a fab evening. The food was absolutely fantastic and really enjoyed having a bit more space with social distancing.
Very enjoyable despite the Covid restrictions; reduced menu and 'end of table' service. The team worked well around the restrictions to make it feel 'normal'. Thank you.
We had a lovely welcome and they were very good at adhering to the social distancing and sanitizing.
Staff were very friendly and accommodating.
Very impressed, great service and the food was excellent. Will be back for more drinks and food again!
Given Corvid19 restrictions, as good as could be expected.
Really enjoyable experience. Staff were really attentive, helpful and friendly.
I have always enjoyed my visits to this pub and this visit was just as good. The measure put in place for COVID-19 didn't disrupt our visit. Routes are clearly labled, tables were separated and staff kept a distance. Booking was easy and simple. We were showed to our outside table and given disposable menues. Service was quick and the food, as always, was delicious. Staff were lovely, polite and attentive. One of our party who hadn't been here before did mention how nice the garden is and how quiet it was even being near a main road. A member of staff even thanked us for coming and showing support for the pub when were all so great full and thank the pub for the effort they had obviously put in for our safety and enjoyment. Would highly recommend this establishment!
Very welcoming, efficient and friendly service.
Tasty and fresh food.
Would definitely recommend.
Warm welcome and great food!
Great food & service. Reassuring Covid precautions.
