It is a lovely place, the food is fantastic, the welcome great, the wood burner being hot and welcoming, good loos AND no need to hand your credit card first. Sue had an amazing looking scallop dish and I had - smoked cods... More

There was a nice welcome when we arrived for dinner. The menu was surprisingly short with only four starters and four mains on offer and fish and chips as the night's special. Anyway we all found something we wanted and a good wine list with something for all tastes. The food arrived quickly . The wild mallard dish was rather... More

I searched online for somewhere to take my husband, to celebrate his 60th birthday. Over the past few years we have looked locally for a decent Sunday Lunch and have failed miserably . However, our experience at the Bird in Hand was fabulous. It was obvious that everything was prepared on the premises as we shared a starter of breadcrumbed... More

We didn't even get to eating as the bar lady/ waitress was so rude we decided not to stay. Considering there were only three people in the pub, I don't think there is any excuse for rude and snide service.

Great country pub, great staff, delicious food, fab atmosphere. Will definitely be going back for more. The staff seemed to have a sixth sense about when we needed more gravy also, this is very important indeed!

Generous Sunday lunch, with fresh seasonal veg. One of our favourite stops for our traditional Sunday lunch fetish! - the pork is especially rich and tender.

We went to the Bird in hand for lunch on Saturday, the menu was good with a lot of variety. We decided to have a main and dessert and it was a good job because a free taster arrived that was gorgeous, a maceral pate with fresh homemade bread. The drinks, a beer and white wine were very reasonably priced... More

This place is just fantastic. Wonderful warm staff, great prompt service and food to die for. The roast dinner is top class, generous portions, beautiful fresh veg selection, cauliflower cheese to die for and gorgeous desserts. This is my 3rd roast here and it never fails to impress. Keep up the great work, love it!

Having moved to Long Ashton recently I have frequented the Bird on numerous occasions and have yet to be disappointed. Great selection of real ales and gin and the bar snacks are outstanding - I can whole heartedly recommend their wonderful scotch eggs and whitebait. Whilst I am yet to have an evening meal, lunch has always been very good.... More
