Lovely comfortable rooms and a great breakfast. The Manager really loved his beer and it showed with all the CAMRA awards. However, it's changed. The Manager disappeared overnight (last rumoured to be in Eastbourne) and it seems to have lost its appeal. The beer is still good, but this has gone from being a good value bar to just about the highest prices in the area. A shame really as it has so much going for it.

A curious one this.
From the outside it looks like a large roadside inn and distinctly unpromising. Step inside and it retains the look of any Harvester/Berni type place you've ever been in. But appearances can be deceptive.
The staff were excellent - very friendly and attentive.
The food was again very good - at the pricier end of the market, turkey escalope £12.95, liver and bacon £11.95, but well worth it and very hot.
Beer excellent - I had 3 pints of Bingham's Total Eclipse and it was 3 of the best pints I've had in quite a while. A little pricey at £3.70 but what the hell.
Don't be put off by the outside - The Bird In Hand is well worth a visit.

Beer quality tip top. I did have a slight gripe in that I was left waiting at the bar with no service for about 10 minutes, I could see staff coming in and out of a door at the back, a man came in to be served but gave up and left, it was only when I started shouting my order, much to the amusement of the punters in the bar, I got served. To be fair the staff came up to me later and apologised, they had a Diamond Jubilee party out the back. Despite this I will visit again as the beer is so good.

Had a good weekend lunch here. From the outside, the place has a bit of chain-pub feel and the inside, whilst perfectly pleasant doesn't really dispel that notion. But while I wouldn't necessarily expect good food or drink from a chain-pub, this place certainly has both. The beer, especially, was excellent with an interesting choice and bags of good flavour. (They also had a mini-festival going on with several extra beers but I don't suppose that happens all the time.) Service was pretty good too.
