We went there last weekend as a family and had a 2 course meal. Starter and main course. The welcome was very warm and the staff helpful. The refurbishment of the restaurant and bar area is very good. The food though was average and the price point above the quality of the food. I had the burger. A dish I...

The Bird in Hand has had a great make over bringing the interior up to date. The service has always been prompt and friendly but the menus have now been revamped as well. We had a fantastic meal there and my dad enjoyed the ham hock and the soup I had was delicious and piping hot.

Wow what a great pub. Beautiful pub and fantastic food, The managers and team are great, will definitely be returning. I can highly recommend the potted crap and crayfish for starters, followed by pork medallions and finished with the excellent cheese board. The recently refurbished bedrooms are also stunning.

Had a lovely dinner last night in the new-look Bird in Hand. The renovations are sympathetically and beautifully done, giving everything a brighter and more chic look. The staff were all fantastic - helpful, efficient, and knowledgeable about the food when I couldn't decide what to choose. Plenty of vegetarian options (which is rare). Extensive wine list, and good beer...

Although there are renovation works going on, we had diner there last Friday and as usual found it excellent. The choice and condition of the real ales is my main reason for visiting, but the restaurant food was of a similar high standard. The service was good and the portions generous. At about £13 for a main course it was...

Upon arriving at the hotel, we found out it was under renovation, which was a little disappointing but the staff handled the situation very well and we had a fantastic stay. The suite was lovely with wooden beams and a country inn feel with added luxury such as bathrobes and tea and coffee facilities. We had a light sharing platter...

Lovely rooms with everything you need but with great character such as sloping ceilings, friendly, welcoming and helpful staff, great breakfasts, oak beamed bar. Easy access if driving to places such as Windsor, Reading, London and if not driving, staff are happy to arrange taxis and local station only 8 min drive with excellent rail connections

Tried pie of the day-which was steak and ale-but at least it was proper pastry-not that awful pie topping added the chef from a pre match batch chips very good. veg over cooked-not enticing. not crowded, pleasant ambience
