My favourite cotswold inn

We recently stayed for two nights in september. We went down with my parents and grandparents to celebrate their 60 wedding anniversary from liverpool.

This meant we were a little on edge as it was a big journey but we were pleasantly suprised. Amazing friendly service great welcome. Superb food and value for money. My parents and grandparents went home after first night and we stayed for an extra night. We eat sunday lunch and evening meal. Roast pork was delightful with a crisp rose outside. would recommend for a family celebration and romantic getaway.

My husband and I stayed at the bird in hand for an anniversary, the customer service was good and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our room was spacious and clean and the bed was really big and comfortable. The food was good with a large and varied menu and the bar and restaurant had a really cosy feel.

The Bird in Hand is in a great location, spectacular scenery with a short drive to the city. This was our first visit to oxford and it is a beautiful place. We also visited Crocodiles of the world in Witney, a new project recently shown on TV called 'croc man' , I would definitely recommend a visit, we had a guided tour (which was very reasonably priced) and even got to hold a baby crocodile!

Would definitely stay here again!

We have been to the Bird in the Hand on a number of occassions in the last 2 months. No least because of their recent advertisement campaign (http://www.supasaveronline.co.uk/) whereby they offer an amazing 2-4-1 on main meals. This has helped bring people into the restaurant which can only be a good thing.

The location is great, building is immaculate and the service is always warm and friendly. What wins us over each time though is the quality of the food and its preparation.

There are also some very nice rooms to stay which is in an annex to the main building.

One of the nicest restaurants in and around Witney

We both wanted to say a massive thank you to all at the Bird in Hand for making our day so very special.

Particular thanks must go to your daughter Abby as she was an absolute star on the Friday evening when we were decorating and during the day itself, nothing was too much trouble for her (and yourself obviously). The food was first class, really tremendous stuff.

Thanks again and we'll be seeing you soon for sure! Wedding Party November 2012

We were part of the big family 90th birthday over the w/e of 16th - 18th November. We'd like to say how much we enjoyed your lovely hotel. The food was great and all the staff were so friendly and kind. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they all helped to make the weekend such a great success for us all. Thanks again and I would recommend The Bird in Hand to anyone wanting a nice quiet break but close to interesting places to visit.

I would like to say a big Thank You to Matt, Gemma, Anna, Abby and all the team at the Bird in Hand Inn for helping to make a 70th Birthday family lunch party such a great success. Your friendly service and willing attention to my wishes regarding the menu choices was much appreciated. Thank you also for preparing the private room so that it was warm and welcoming for my guests on a cold February day. The food was delicious and the portions were hearty! It was an added bonus that some of my guests from afar were able to stay overnight in your excellent accommodation. Best wishes, Vivienne Root
