    Locatiojn I s fantastic, very relaxing environment. If you have a room overlooking the baackyard, you only hear birds singing. The food is excellent and breakfast offers an impressive variety of options. Wi-Fi is as fast as a cannonball

    Unfortunately my stay was too short :-)

    Very good

    Very comfortable. The bedroom had just been refurbished to a good standard. Meals were good although a little pricey. Breakfast was buffet style which is always a bonus. I would stay again.

    The free Wifi was not good. I struggled to get a signal

    Friendly and welcoming atmosphere. As well as being an excellent value hotel several locals use the bar and restaurant signalling a well run establishment. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and well furnished. We stayed en route from Europe for a couple of nights before heading north and home and we would use this place again, especially for a holiday taking in the many attractions locally and good train connections to London.

    Superb

    We booked as a stop off, to stagger our journey back home and very much needed somewhere to relax, with good wholesome food and a comfortable room. Bird in the Hand was the perfect choice. I wish more hotels got the basics right like them. Excellently priced rooms, great food served either in the 14th century bar or in the restaurant. Plus, a proper cooked breakfast that is included in the room price (fresh fruit to start and then a wide selection presented by the waitress to build up your cooked breakfast). Breakfast was served until 11am (woo hoo!) The shower was also fantastic, (no overly complex power showers here). So many little thoughtful practical details that just make the stay that bit more pleasant.

    The beers! The staff were all great, very friendly and welcoming in the reception and the bar.

    Tonic from the machine rather than bottles, and the rather surly waitress at breakfast.

    Breakfast served up to 11am

    No staff in evidence when we arrived at breakfast. Waited a good few minutes before anyone appeared.

    The room only had one double electrical outlet in an inconvenient location. It made it difficult to use my hair dryer or charge and use electronics.

    Good location helpful staff, room was clean and tidy.

    Left for some time at breakfast reception without seeing a member of staff.

    Fabulous

    Rooms were good and a reasonable size. Dined in restaurant, Excellent fish. Breakfast was good

    Annoying shower head that was small and too powerful. Starters at supper not up to standard of main course.

    Staff very friendly and accomodating, room very clean, overall good experience would have loved to have tried the food in the evening but other commitments prevented me, breakfast was great, if it that area again would stay here, thanks all.

    Checked in by a member of bar staff who was very busy at the time and it showed, "sign here, room key and room over there"

    Superb

    Great advance price for a double room which looked recently refurbished. Excellent food although quite pricey but worth it. Nice old coaching inn very welcoming and cosy with good choice of beers ( camera pub ) Friendly locals and staff. Very good breakfast set us up for the day.

    No tea in room but probably just an oversight. Failed to get our morning call as arranged. Both of these things minor and did not spoil our experience at all.
