About The Bird in Hand
Situated close to central Bristol but in a rural setting, the newly refurbished Bird in Hand offers fantastic food and ales in a warm, welcoming environment. A true food led pub offering modern British cuisine using local, seasonal and foraged produce.
Had a delicious meal, will certainly come back
Excellent food, entertaining service.
Service was tip notch, in fact most personable I have ever experienced. The food and drink was of very high quality. We were upsold way too much food though so we took a significant amount home. It was a plus to accommodate dogs as well. I will highly recommend this restaurant to others. Beautiful location.
Outstanding Sunday lunch, starting with fantastic front of house team that made our meal a lot more than great food. All three courses were outstanding where superb. Thanks to all that made my birthday lunch a memorable event.
One of our favourite places that happens to be our local. Lucky!
Excellent attention to detail and service, delicious food. Looking forward to our next visit
Delicious food in a fantastic cosy setting. Had a great Sat night with out of town friends who were so impressed with their experience. Look forward to next time
I have enjoyed every single one of my visits to the Bird in Hand. One of the best roast dinners around. Quality ingredients, cooked perfectly, the restaurant itself is intimate and very atmospheric. Service has always been great. I will be back again soon!
Thanks for a lovely meal!
We had such a lovely Mothers day lunch. Fab all round, but best thing was the service. We'll be back.
Cracking pub for Sunday lunch on Mother's Day, what a treat. Would have been five stars on everything but the roast beef was absolutely stone cold, complemented by hot, fresh veggies and saved by asking for a jug of hot gravy. I didn't send it back as they were clearly slammed, it being Mother's Day. Great, chirpy service and a warm, friendly atmosphere
Excellent meal, very accommodating and helpful staff, food was very good.
Awsome food ,great service
A lovely local pub, with hearty food, great service and a cosy atmosphere. Not to mention the "gin of the week"!
The food was excellent
Great piece of beef
We had a fab family lunch at the Bird in Hand recently. The staff / service was second to none and the food was great. Highly recommended and we hope to return at some point.
We recently moved to the area and had heard good things about the bird in hand. We went for dinner and were not disappointed. Nice ales on tap and a good choice of wine. The food was really really nice. It took a while for our first course - however it transpired that the chef wanted to redo our dish because they weren’t happy with it...it was worth the wait and because of the friendly relaxed atmosphere it didn’t matter. We would definitely recommend going for food or a even just a drink. The staff were really nice and the food was delicious.
Food was amazing!
Somewhat pricey for a Sunday Lunch. Got talked into having the beef. Didn’t see anyone with the pork which I would have preferred. Couldn’t fault the food, quality or portions, but couldn’t come here too often.
The food and presentation was amazing, unfortunately let down by brash and rude service (the manager took my husbands drinks order, not mine, then got his drink, came back and said "that's the most important person done, would you like anything?") then we were totally ignored, having to find someone to serve us a second drink, clear our table, and the wait for pudding was well over half an hour, apparently due to a "large" table in front of us. There were only 12 other people in the pub....
Service was very good and the food was great. There were not many other diners hence the lower mark for atmosphere. I would certainly visit again.
We came for my sister’s birthday lunch & as usual the food and service were outstanding! We always come away with everybody saying how much they enjoyed their meal. The vegetarian options are always so good & different from the boring options available with a roast dinner elsewhere.
We have dined with you once before (We are not local - we live in London). The first time was far superior to our last visit. We still remember the risotto fondly. On this occasion the bread was definitely not homemade and the food gave us stomach issues. In saying that we were greeted with a warm welcome and the service was very friendly.
My family and I had a delicious meal at the Bird in Hand on Sunday. They catered for a group of 12 of us, fairly last minute, and the food was every bit as scrumptious as I had heard! Also, the service was great with the waiter taking the time to entertain the four children in our group despite them being very busy. Can't wait to visit again soon.
