We, again, thoroughly enjoyed our second meal at the Bird in Hand and will be sure to eat there again. Great service, tasty food, flexible kitchens and yummy surprises accompanied by delicious wine recommendations.

Enjoyed the meal very much, but would have liked option of brown bread (sorry if there was, I forgot to ask). The menu was interesting and, as usual beautifully cooked and presented.

Really lovely waiting staff and the food was excellent. Thank you very much. It's brilliant to be able to go on a long walk with the Bird In Hand as a destination that welcomes the dog. Thank you.

Service charge for 2 people seems a bit extreme to me. The service was good and I would have tipped but to just add it on the bill for 2 people! Really. Atmosphere a bit cold and the menu limited I thought.

The service was slow and surly. Despite pre-ordering we had to wait over 1 hour between courses. When we were served, I felt like we were an inconvenience - the waitress repeatedly walked past our table without even glancing to see if we needed anything. I think the worst part was when desserts were delivered and then we had to get our own cutlery as the waitress either forgot or couldn't be bothered. The handling of the bill was appalling. Despite paying a £130 deposit, this was not accounted for and the bar person was suggesting we hadn't paid in full. In fact, as I recall, the service charge was actually paid (I don't believe it should have been). When I mentioned that things had been a little slow I was patronisingly told that they were short-staffed. I'm sorry, but you took the booking and you did nothing during the meal to make up for this or even let us know that was the case. I also think that given the price and it was a festive meal, there should have been some crackers on the table. The food was very disappointing. We were offered bread but no side plates to eat it on. Steaks were overcooked and had clearly been sitting about as the veg on my plate was only luke-warm. One person in the party who had the risotto felt ill for a couple of days after. Some of puddings were tiny and tasted as if they had come from supermarket frozen aisle section. Overall the consensus of the table that it was below the standard they expected, given the cost. This was such a shame and a huge let-down as I've always had great experiences at The Bird In Hand and always highly recommended the place. I'm hoping this was just an off day.

Fantastic food and a great atmosphere. With short notice the kitchen rustled up plates of food for a member of our party who is a vegan. She said it’s the best food she’s ever had when dining out. The service was also excellent.

Food was delicious my only negative comment is the vegetable portion size was tiny I thought what was a two person serving was more like a single serving which seemed a shame as was quite pricey but would go again as local and very tasty and beautifully rare beef 😀 also excellent response to food intolerances which was appreciated thank you.

Really noisey atmosphere. Had a couple of issues with our food that needed attention. Particularly the food wasn’t very warm. We were in a group of 7. The waiter did his best to help with the situation. Although they cooked the beef well done for us I’m not sure why a restaurant/pub would advertise the meat as rare given that the majority of people would like it cooked at least to medium rare.

A truly wonderful pub with bags of charm and character. Great food, a good selection of drinks and attentive staff. Always appreciate a good selection of local/West Country ales. Brilliant.
