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.
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.
Excellent Sunday roast – the roast potatoes in particular were divine. The service was friendly and very quick, which was really impressive considering the pub was absolutely packed.
Can’t fault anything
All really good. I think the food and drink deserves 5 stars even though my starter (butternut squash) was a bit bland for my taste. I'd also recommend a different potato choice rather than just chips or Dauphinoise (wonderful though the chips are!), because those two don't go with everything, whereas new pots (when available) or mash kind of do. But the freshness was fantastic, really enjoyed all our mains and puddings and the beer and wine was also top.
Great night and good food service very good. Will be booking again.Friends very impressed. Thank you.
Very jolly place but the noise can be almost unbearable. You really should invest in some sound insulation in the restaurant area - it would make the experience so much more enjoyable and wouldn't cost a fortune. some sheeps wool panels would work with the character of the pub. The food was very good.
Quality food, Good Beer and Great Staff - Lucky us having this pub so close to home!
