About The Bird in Hand
Situated close to central Bristol but in a rural setting, the 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.
Staff were great, so helpful as I only wanted a light snack and couldn’t see anything on the menu like a sandwich or salads and they said they would just make me something with what they had as a lighter lunch which was perfect and the food was amazing :) super happy
Excellent knowledge about wine and beers available from a large range. Exceptional food, with great flavour combinations. All courses were very good so difficult to know which of 3 to miss out if you even wanted to! We felt the food was good value for money, the service was very friendly. We would definitely return.
Almost everyone that attended has sent blissful compliments on the evening. They lived the food and overall attention to detail. Thank you Sam (manager) for being there for us all the time. Great show!!
A mixed evening. Food was ok but chips were hit and miss between cold and warm - however Steak good. We weren't asked once (I appreciate too often is not good) how our meal was and whether we enjoyed ourselves. I appreciate it is near Christmas but large table were VERY noisy. £140 for family of 4 not cheap for main/desert and drinks. I expected a little bit more from the venue but not a disaster
Excellent food that exceeds expectations for a pub. Only slight criticism is that it could be a little bit hotter .
Excellent food, really enjoyed the meal
Unfortunately they were short staffed. Food was amazing though.
Really friendly staff, great food and inviting space. Was lovely to spend a Sunday afternoon there!
Seated with dogs by the fireplace, ideal! Good food and wine. Service was nice too. Great atmosphere, can't fault!
Lovely atmosphere and the service was reasonable despite it being pretty busy. But the food we all felt was overpriced for what it was, and and ok rather than great. Portion sizes on some dishes were tiny for fairly high restaurant prices. It left us feeling as if we'd slightly being taken advantage of!
A hearty roast on a blustery autumn day for 6 weary hikers.....I'd highly recommend this hostilery.
We had a delicious meal in a warm and inviting environment. The service was good.
We have heard many wonderfully things about The Bird in Hand and we were not disappointed. Lovely food, great atmosphere and very attentive service.
We were very happy with our meal, 14 of us and everyone enjoyed their food. Staff were great, friendly and attentive.
The service was excellent. We had a vegan in our party and the staff and chef went above and beyond to accommodate that.
Rather leisurely service but good food. Great waiter in Jamie.. customer focussed
It's a lovely relaxed setting, amazing food with great combinations of quality ingredients. The service was friendly and fun, attentive but relaxed. (The only irritation was the large group dining behind us having such a great laugh! They were loud, but very happy. But you wouldn't be able to limit the size of groups)
We came for Sunday lunch. I can honestly say it was the best Sunday roast we’ve had eating out. The beef was just beautiful, perfectly cooked. Everything we ate was just lovely; beautifully presented and really well cooked. Plus the sticky toffee pudding was an absolute winner! We’ve eaten here a few times and each time, the food and service has been absolutely brilliant.
Delicious food very friendly and efficient service.
The food was fantastic, the guys running the bar could not have been more friendly and we will be back!
Food was absolutely wonderful and service excellent but small room by toilets was a bit disappointing.
