Originally a 16th century coaching inn with a pleasant low ceilinged bar and an open inglenook fireplace. There's an enclosed garden at rear. The chef, Santino Busciglio, has worked in a number of Michelin-starred London restaurants and has appeared on BBC's Masterchef and Ramsay's Best Restaurant on C4. Not surprisingly, the Bird in Hand is rapidly gaining a reputation for fine dining.
