About the Pub

The Bird is a substantial old building dating back to the late 19th century. It was originally a Groves & Whitnall’s house called the Bird in Hand, and one of the original stained glass windows survives to testify to that name. In late 2016 it was refurbished and the ground floor rooms have been opened up. The Games Room or vault has moved upstairs to the first floor where a very fine hammerbeam roof can be admired (along with a very similar function room). The ground floor lounge now has more of an emphasis on food, with an open kitchen that focuses on Italian food and particularly pizzas. There is a beer garden behind the pub, along with a sizeable smoking area (not strictly a shelter as there is no proper roof to it). A small part of the extensive car park has been converted to become an outdoor drinking area at the front of the pub. Food service: 12-9 for main meals. Opens at 9 on Saturdays and Sundays for breakfast. Freshly baked pizza available from 12 until late. Sunday roasts now available on Sunday afternoons.

Additional info: Under new management (again)
