We eat her often especially when we have visitors as we know there will always be something for everyone's tastes on the menu. We had our Ruby Anniversary dinner here and everyone enjoyed their meal.

Had a great evening meal with my partner. Staff were attentive and friendly. Both mains we ordered were delicious. It could sometimes be a bit hit and miss here but now both food and service seem much improved under new management. Lovely countryside location, nice seating outside. I hear that they do a good breakfast too!

Tried this out on recommendation of friends but food if a bit too pretentious of me - however did find out that I don't like artichokes! Lamb lacked taste but chicken was nice Good portions of desserts Staff friendly, welcoming and attentive. I wouldn't write it off but not sure its really a place for my tastebuds

Last night I had a meal at The Bird in Hand with my wife and two friends which was outstanding. We were greeted on arrival by smiling staff, despite it being quite busy, and shown to our table and given menus. We asked for a special diet menu and the girl fetched one immediately. Drinks were ordered and came in... More
