Bird in Hand5 Canal Side
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Canal-side pub 10 minutes walk along the towpath from the town and near to the old railway line country path. A central bar serves a snug, and the main lounge has three distinct areas. The room facing the bar was originally stables. Pub meals are available every day and traditional roasts on Sundays until 5pm. In summer it's pleasant to walk or cycle there to have a well deserved pint sitting in the shade of wisteria by the canal. It has one of the very few remaining bowling greens in the area. Three beers from local breweries include Holden's Golden Glow and Wye Valley HPA and Hobsons Town Crier.
