About Us


We took over the pub on 10th March 2017 and are building a comfortable environment to enjoy a drink with 30 gins in our menu, an extensive wine list, spirits and real ales and if you fancy a nibble there are homemade burgers and other pub grub offerings.

We are aiming to be the centre of the community offering a variety of different events, these all will be published on our Facebook page as well as the website. If we do not have your drink in stock lets us know and we will try and get it in from our suppliers. There is something for everyone at The Bird, whether it be Children’s play area, Sky and BT sports or just a nice glass of wine

Ingrida and Nigel look forward to seeing you soon
