the Orange Bird is a neighbourhood restaurant in the heart of Hillsborough.

Our menu will be cooked on an open fire using the best seasonal ingredients. The chef uses many things as inspiration, but the main one is his childhood growing up in South Africa - hence the BBQ, or Braai as its known there.
We are also passionate about our delicious Orange Bird ice cream, made using seasonal ingredients and a lot of love!

Our drinks menu is fairly small, and carefully chosen to complement the fire and ice in the food.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Orange Bird. The food was magnificent and the service was friendly. It’s a cut above the kind of dining experience we expected to find in Hillsborough and we hope it thrives. We will certainly be heading back as soon as life allows us.

    Fantastic restaurant, really interesting menu, beautifully presented food. Feels like a real treat, great for date night, after work midweek dinner, or evening with friends. Small and intimate, fab background music on vinyl and attentive service. We love it and is a firm favourite.

    ‘Just a coffee’ turned into coffee and irresistible curry butter fries. So good. Such friendly service but not overbearing. A great place to catch up over seriously tasty food and great coffee, whilst watching the world go by.

    Everything one might hope for from a local restaurant... such a pity I live 80 miles away! The pork was particularly rewarding, but I suspect I'd have been just as happy with anything that comes off that grill.

    My friend and I spent another lovely evening. The menu was totally changed from the week before and we ordered 4 dishes to share. Beetroot starter..delicious. Warm grape dish..also very tasty. Pork chop and apple...full of flavour and whole fish which was beautifully cooked. The hosts as before couldn't have been more perfect. Honestly, I am sold!
