Ate here twice whilst staying as a guest and regretted the second meal. There is a very poor choice of vegetarian food overall and this is pricey compared to meat. Although the young waiter was helpful, the chef refused to include a vegetarian option in...More

The rooms and decor were very tired and the bathroom needed redoing grouting etc. However the room was large which was lovely and quiet. The bed lost its spring a bit, pillows on their last legs but still nice. The restaurant and pub was similar...More

We came to the bird in hand to celebrate a birthday. We opted for the set menu, which at £14 for 3 courses is very reasonable, however the menu options are limited. Vegetarians are not well catered for because on the set menu there is...More

The food was good, not brilliant, but good. The staff were friendly and welcoming but the positives end there. We were not told of the specials nor given a specials menu, which we only realised after we had ordered and then over heard another table...More

Several minor niggles about the state of the rooms were finally compounded by the announcement at breakfast that they had 'run out of side plates' so we were all issued with saucers for our toast!

Our first visit to this quaint old fashioned countryside pub/restaurant with exposed beams. One of the owners is a Wales rugby fan, and the pub contains lots of memorabilia, and several witty rugby expression and jokes around the walls. They don't have a television, so...More
