Not enough staff on service, long wait for food and water, above average food and nice setting would recommend the steak ale pie, and Veggie option on our table, savoury bread and butter pudding no chips required as very rich, just salad on side was enough. Beef brisket and mash undercooked and too salty served with limited veg.

The Bird in Hand has just begun serving breakfast. I visited with some friends to catch up in a friendly environment. The hospitality was great and the food first class and very reasonably priced. A good choice on the menu was available for all tastes. The atmosphere was relaxed and we shall definitely go again very soon.

This is a lovely warm welcoming pub. They had put banners up and silver decorations on the table. We had 3 courses which were superb and so lovely presented. My starter smoked mackerel with melba toast was shaped like a boat with sails. Ingenious. I had a special - sweet and sour pork balls with rice. Fabulous. I found the... More

The restaurant was lovely and bright and clean. Service was good and the food delicious. We didn't have to wait long between courses and food arrived piping hot. Would definitely go again.

Lunchtime visit to this delightful pub! No mulled wine or cider, which was a little disappointing. But the roast beef lunch made up for it! Have to say it was the best roast I have ever had in a restaurant! Everything perfectly cooked and plenty of it! The service was friendly and professional. Can't wait to go back!

We are a family run restaurant and free house in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, yet only fifteen minutes from the city of Norwich.

The ingredients for our menus are sourced locally wherever possible, we grow our own herbs, and our free range eggs are from a local farm,and we buy our fish fresh direct from Lowestoft.

Whether you are looking for a delicious traditional steak and ale pie, beer battered fish and chips (large!!) A sizzling skillet of Duck Breast with oriental vegetables and Hoisin sauce, or indeed something a little different from our evening special selection, we know you will be spoilt for choice with our extensive menu.
We also have some delicious vegetarian options to tempt you.
Oh, and try to leave room for one of Tristan's legendary desserts!

Our recently opened eight en suite luxury Guest rooms are available now at a charge of £80 per room and our delicious breakfast just £8.95.

During the warmer months, we look forward to offering outside dining, either in our gardens or on our sunny terrace, and we can now cater for larger parties, wedding receptions and celebratory functions.

We would love to welcome you to The Bird in Hand, do please come and visit us soon!
