We are a family run restaurant and free house in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, yet only fifteen minutes from the city of Norwich. The ingredients for our menus are sourced locally wherever possible, we grow our own herbs, and our free range eggs are from a local farm,and we buy our fish fresh direct from Lowestoft. Whether you are looking for a delicious traditional steak and ale pie, beer battered fish and chips (large!!) A sizzling skillet of Duck Breast with oriental vegetables and Hoisin sauce, or indeed something a little different from our evening special selection, we know you will be spoilt for choice with our extensive menu. We also have some delicious vegetarian options to tempt you. Oh, and try to leave room for one of Tristan's legendary desserts! Our recently opened eight en suite luxury Guest rooms are available now at a charge of £80 per room and our delicious breakfast just £8.95. During the warmer months, we look forward to offering outside dining, either in our gardens or on our sunny terrace, and we can now cater for larger parties, wedding receptions and celebratory functions. We would love to welcome you to The Bird in Hand, do please come and visit us soon!

Arrived in a torrent of rain, and the walk across the carpark was demp but acceptable, however the long walk under the dripping (pouring) Pergola was awful... Absolutely soaked.

Family meal here. Excellent range of food on offer and expertly cooked. Looked a good choice of vegetarian dishes on the menu. I had trouble deciding which dish to try as there were so many. The chips were hand cut and vegetables varied. Kale, Swede...More
I found this place today completely by accident as I left my regular route to my next appointment and took the road less traveled by. I saw that they advertised coffee and that’s what I needed so I went in. I won’t go into details...More
We booked the night at the Bird in Hand following the recommendation in The Lotus Driving Academy joining instructions. It’s only minutes from the factory and exceeded our expectations. Friendly welcome and the allocation of a chalet style room with views over the fields. We...More
Five of us met here. Welcoming staff. Varied menu with 'specials board'. Steak and ale pie....crab salad...lasagne..salmon dishes all tried and ALL were excellent. Good atmosphere. Large open carpark with easy access.

The Bird in Hand has always been a nice place my family and I have visited over many years. Sadly the experience was poor this time around.

Hi there, we love dogs at the Bird and they are more than welcome in our garden.
Sadly we can’t allow them into the bar or restaurants as others are not quite so dog friendly as we are!
Hope this helps

Firstly my pate is coarse, it is not a course which is something one goes on ,to learn something and in your case it would of course be English language. finally being a traveller unconnected with the places I review I did not have pate but I know if I had complained about the pate at the bird in hand it would have been immediately rectified. But further to this I will be in Wymondham next week and I will personally check the pate a up rated review will follow P.D.Q.regards Charles.
