We are regulars at The Bird in Hand. As usual the meal was delicious and the service attentive.
We felt very safe as they have good Covid 19 measures in place.

I made a last minute booking for an early dinner on one of the last hot days in September. We had a lovely outdoor table as requested in their beautiful garden. The staff were very friendly and polite and didn’t rush us at all. I initially thought the online menu was a little pricey compared to some of the other options in the area, however I would definitely say the ambience was well worth the extra pennies and will definitely be revisiting.

Nice snack lunch in the garden. Bit of a sun trap with plenty of parasols. Varied menu with lots of interesting sharers and starters to choose from. Good guest beers, well maintained when we visited. Road noise can occasionally be a little distracting. Certainly worth a visit.

Excellent lunchtime food. The starters were great and we shared the chorizo and chicken skewers. Main courses of haddock were beautifully cooked, moist but very tasty. We were met by the owner and the other staff were very polite and accommodating. Covid 19 secure throughout.

Lovely, safely distanced meal out, in the lovely garden area as we have a doggy. Totally private seating area surrounded by lovely flowers. Peaceful and great service. Food was yummy, really lovely. Great experience after being locked in for so long.

food was good although a limited menu but I suspect this is due to the current Covid situation. Staff were all complying with the social distancing and I felt the place was clean and safe.
