A warm welcome at The Bird in Hand

Set in the Somerset village of Long Ashton, just a stone’s throw from Bristol, there’s more to the Bird in Hand than first meets the eye. Yes, there’s all the rustic charm you would expect from a traditional country pub – but with an exotic twist here and there.

Liz, born in South Africa, has added a few touches from home in the décor and the menu. The result is a relaxed, yet vibrant place that everyone can enjoy, all year round. Come and see – and you may stay longer than expected!

A great place to meet friends

Whether it’s a quick pint after work, a lunchtime bite or dinner with family and friends, the Bird in Hand ticks all the boxes.

It’s a place where locals and visitors feel equally at home. Gather around the fire after a bracing walk, share a story in the bar or let the kids play in our covered courtyard.

Whatever you like in a pub, we think you’ll like it here.

Pub bottle, crisps and nibbles

All your favourite tipples and nibbles

Our well-stocked bar offers the best in local beers and ciders, to favourites from further afield.

Try a pint of Tribute, Gem or one of many guest ales, or slake your thirst with a refreshing lager like Moretti or Red Stripe. But of course, Somerset is renowned for cider and there’s always plenty of Thatcher’s Gold, Haze and Traditional on tap. And if you’re peckish there’s bags of tasty bar snacks to keep you going.


Delicious homemade food

From hearty sandwiches to more substantial fare, our imaginative menu has something for every taste.

And you can be sure there are plenty of mouth-watering veggie, vegan and gluten-free options, including healthy choices for the kids too. Who can resist pub classics like pie and mash, winter warmers like Coq au Vin or the perennial steak and chips? Maybe you’ll go for a spin on a family favourite like our Boerewors Sausage and Mash. Or why not try our South African inspired dishes like Bobotie, Sosaties or Malva pudding?

We can’t wait to welcome you to our friendly village pub with a difference.
