Been here a number of times now - always excellent service, as a strict vegetarian I am always greeted by a vast amount of choice - never disappointed!

We went here yesterday for lunch , the restaurant itself was FREEZING so we decided to eat in the bar area which was very dated. We decided to have sandwiches and a side of chips. The barmaid was pleasant but it seemed she was also the cook that day aswell ! We ordered a BLT and a prawn sandwich (4.95) and a cheese sandwich for my little boy, the sandwiches were not worth the money at all, no crisps or salad garnish just a very plain sandwich like something you might buy from a greasy spoon and my son had slabs rather than grated cheese. I would have been happy to pay 3.00 for these sandwiches each at the most. Will definitely not be going back !

Having just returned from Afghan, it was nice to go here for a surprise meal with the family. This pub is often just driven past, which is a real shame. Its a great old fashioned pub. Amazing beer, true friendly service, and the food is just on a different level. I had shepherds pie, for the first time in 4 months and it really couldn't have been beaten! The chef came out for a chat about the food, and i couldnt tell him enough how gorgeous it was. So if you drive by, pop in. It's worth it!

Table pre-booked but due to one of our party being delayed time had to be put back by an hour... chef very happy to do this! I had vegetarian ravioli which was a delight! Restaurant décor appeared tired but customer service was to a very high standard and the all of our party agreed that the food was excellent. Happy to recommend and will certainly return!

i went to the bird in hand yesterday for a family roast, was served our drinks at the bar by a friendly young lady who had sat us in the ("restaurant" area which was cold and dated) and continued to give a friendly service throughout our meal. I had the roast beef which was nice and tender and just enough and then the veg and potatoes came on a serving dish, veg was nice and plentiful but the potatoes and Yorkshire puddings were slightly burnt and left a lingering taste. would eat there again if passing but wont go out of my way to return.
