Let us take the stress out of your Sunday!

We always serve a choice of four locally-sourced meats including, Turkey, Chicken, Beef and Gammon; slow-cooked for perfect flavour and tenderness. Served with fresh vegetables, Yorkshire puds, stuffing balls and lashings of gravy! Vegetarian options also available.


Every week we get a choice of between 20 and 30 beers to tempt your palates, from dark chocolate stouts to light, easy-drinking beers.

These beers are sourced from as far as the Orkneys to the Isle of White, so always we try to offer something for everyone’s taste.

The Bird in Hand is part of the Black Country Ales chain, which classes itself as a Micro-Brewery with Major Taste.

We always stock what we count as the big three...

Bradley’s Finest Golden (BFG) ABV 4.2%

A straw coloured quaffing beer, with an impressive bold citrus hop aroma, fruity balanced sweetness and a lingering refreshing after-taste.

Pig On The Wall ABV 4.2%

A refreshing chestnut brown beer with a complex flavour of light hops giving way to a bittersweet blend of roasted malt. Suggestions of chocolate and coffee undertones.

Fireside ABV 5%

A well rounded premium bitter, amber in colour, clean in taste leading to a pleasant dry finish.

Ciders, wines & spirits

We have two flat ciders on at all times; normally a fruit one and an apple-based one. We have a choice of 4 to 8 a week – lovely on those warm summer nights!

Our bar offer is Carling, Staropramen, Thatcher’s Cider and Guinness.

We currently have 12 different gins and a large selection of FeverTree tonics to complement all tastes.

For the wine connoisseur we have various reds, whites and rosés on offer, and of course prosecco served with a cherry.
