About The Bird In Hand

The Bird In Hand has managed to maintain its original beauty and stature by keeping the building’s authentic beamed ceilings and traditional local stone. The premises are encompassed by stunning scenery and a lovely countryside.

Rooms are set in a lush courtyard and include modern furnishings along with flat-screen TV, tea and coffee making utensils, and an en suite bathroom.

Guests can cosy up by the fireplace during the cold months and sit on the veranda during the summer. The inn also has fully equipped meeting rooms for business conferences. Free Wi-Fi is available in all areas.

A full breakfast is served during the day. Lunch and dinner is provided at the rustic pub and restaurant. The bar offers wines, spirits, and real ales.

North of Witney is 4.9km from the Bird In Hand and the A40 and the National Rail Trains are 6.4km away. A main thoroughfare, Chipping Norton, and Oxford are only several kilometres away from the premises.

Positive Reviews

The Dream Place Of The Countryside.

The inn is located in the countryside in lovely surroundings. There's plenty of exploring to do on the premises. The poppies across the road are beautiful. The car park is large as well.

The Meals Are Hearty.

The food is good and cooked to order. You are served a large breakfast, maybe too large. However, the menu will certainly peak your appetite. Don’t be surprised if you find the restaurant booked up, so you’d better get your order in early.

Very Nice Presentation.

The inn is clean and presented well and the rooms are a nice size. The staff is welcoming, pleasant, and more than eager to assist you with your needs.

Negative Reviews

Dodging The Vehicles.

The inn is on a main road; therefore, it is a bit tricky to have a nice stroll. The traffic is somewhat intimidating. The inn is hard to find as well.

Maybe An Upgrade Will Bring Them To The 21st Century.

The rooms are clean but they could do with an upgrade to make the inn appear more contemporary.

How Do You Keep Cool?.

The inn has no fans or air conditioning. It's an oven during the hot summer months. At least a fan would show some consideration for suffering visitors.
