Stopped in for a couple of pints. Very nice pub with a large outdoor seating area. The staff were very nice and attentive. Would like to come back for a meal.

Booked for an early evening meal outside and as soon as we arrived we were greeted with a friendly welcome. Lovely garden and every table had a parasol which was much needed. Offered a drink as we were sitting down which was nice, menus brought...promptly. Good choice and catered for many tastes and appetites. Nice snack and nibbles selection too. We went for halloumi bites and garlic ciabatta, followed by salmon and the sea bass. Everything was cooked to perfection, extremely tasty and lovingly prepared. Washed down with Prosecco and cocktails (2 for £10 5-7pm Monday to Friday). The team were all super attentive and friendly, one of the nicest atmospheres of any place we’ve visited. To sum up, fantastic food, wonderful friendly team and a nice garden. Lots of parking too. Can’t wait to return, thank you.More

I do not always put good comments, but Bird in Hand deserves several. The service today has been excellent thanks for your work I enjoyed as a customer and I appreciate your talent, always adequate. The food has been a success. I also hope to...be able to enjoy the menu soon. I want to try everything !! For me a 10 both in service and in food preparation, which has also been delicious. In short, a place to relax and have dinner with friends or on a date or even talk about work.More

Lovely outdoor situation. It felt safe and well managed regarding Covid-19. The tables were well spaced, the menu was extensive and the food delicious. Look forward to a return visit.

Just went for a couple pints after work with some mates and even though hadn’t booked the guys were so accommodating finding us a table. Bar snacks menu was great for some picky bits. Really friendly staff and up for a good joke!

Love what the guys at the Bird in Hand have done with their outside area, making the most of such a difficult time to make everyone comfortable but they have nailed it. We were sat up under the tent which is so cosy and well...lit. Instantly we were welcomed by a friendly host who took us through to the garden area. All the staff loved our little fluffy friend too and were straight on getting her a drink as well as us. The beef burger is a new recipe which after asking we found out it is made in house and was amazing. All the food came out really quickly and staff were always checking on us regularly. When it started getting a bit dark there were blankets for us on our laps before we even had to ask. Love love love this pub and will always be a our top local pub.More

If we could give a minus rating we would. We just waited almost an hour for a burger in freezing cold temperatures outside and no outdoor heating. Asked for blankets about 4 times then after being made to wait almost an hour for our burgers,...we asked the manager if he could give us complimentary coffee’s to keep us warm while we waited. He then became cocky, aggressive and ready for a fight. Stay away from this place!More

We had a nice pub lunch in the garden at this pub on the outskirts of Woking. The garden is nice, but it’s set on quite a busy road. Food was not bad, pork belly burger didn’t really work, but everything else a was great,...including the service.More
