About the Bird in Hand

The Bird in Hand is quite simply a pub of two halves.

On one side you have the wood panelled restaurant. Warm and welcoming with the feel of a country house dining room. On the other, a traditional pub atmosphere, with wood floors, pool, darts and of course all the big games screened live. You can be sure to receive a warm welcome from Karl and Lisa who will make sure you enjoy your visit.

Karl began his career in fine food when he joined London`s Le Méridien Piccadilly. Here he studied and worked to achieve the highest standards (Karl and Lisa also met here!) They both moved on to Hotel Martinez, Cannes in the South of France. Finally they returned to England where Karl secured the position of Head Chef at Pennyhill Park, where he remained for 16 years.

A wealth of experience and expertise from Karl and Lisa are now available to all in the warm and inviting surroundings of The Bird in Hand. So whether it’s a delicious meal with loved ones, friends or business associates in the comfort of the restaurant or a delicious homemade burger whilst discussing the ‘offside’ rule with your mates in the bar, The Bird in Hand, really does have something for everyone.

Coupled with the everyday excitement a pub brings Karl and Lisa are also able to offer catered parties and functions, whether it be wedding, anniversary, christening or funeral teas, please call Lisa to discuss menu/buffet options to suit your budget.

And…. If all this wasn’t enough, you can take this fabulous food home and claim it as your own! The Bird in Hand offers a full catering service, so choose your dish or dishes and have the kitchen prepare it for you to collect and serve at home* (All food is served in china serving dishes/platters. A deposit for crockery will be charged and refund given on safe receipt of clean china)
