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

Gorgeous Sunday lunch. Fabulous rare beef with great gluten free gravy (and knowledge of gluten free options on the menu) albeit a little pricey hence the 4 stars!

Been here many times and sorry to have to post and say the bar service is usually terrible. Doesn't usually matter if it's only you waiting or there are lots of people waiting, there are plenty of bar staff but no one wants to serve. And when you get served don't expect it to be friendly. Basically the opposite of... More

On booking the manager had asked about many allergies. My daughter is on a gluten and dairy free diet. On arriving for our meal she was presented with an annotated menu with all her options marked. They had prepared her a special amuse bouche and dessert. We all enjoyed a great meal, with excellent service and delicious food and wine/beers.... More

Found it really disapointing that the only food on a sunday night is fish and chips. Which I expect by the look of it, was put in the microwave for 30 seconds. No thanks.

Hi Thanks for your "kind" review. Fish and chips w/ a pint for £10 are only served on a Sunday evening and has been like that for a while now. With all our other customers it seems to go down really well. For the fact you think its done in a microwave is just ridiculous. Maybe you should try it... More
