In line with current government guidelines, and now that we are in Tier 2 it is now mandatory to wear a face covering when moving around our bar/restaurant. However, once seated you can remove them. When arriving, we have printed our own QR code that is located just after our front door, for the track and trace app. We are also aware that some people don’t have it, so we can still track and trace manually.
We are only allowed to serve alcoholic drinks with a meal too.
Tables of 6 are the largest that is currently allowed and everybody on the table has to be from the same household. Unfortunately we are unable to take larger groups or different households that are split on separate tables.
Table service is also mandatory at the moment, so when arriving, we will seat you directly to a table where we will serve you as normal from then on. No bar service unfortunately.
With regards to payments, we can either take card or cash.
Lastly, we now have a 11:00pm curfew, so for our evening service, last food orders are now at 9:00pm and orders for the bar are 10:00pm.

A stunning, relaxing place to eat, drink or stay in the heart of the Cotswolds.
Ideally situated within a few miles of Oxford, Witney, Banbury and major motorways, once inside, you’ll discover a gem of a classic Cotswolds Country Inn.
Boasting a cosy bar, sumptuous restaurant, sixteen delightful “en-suite” bedrooms, three function rooms, The Bird in Hand is a perfect place to come and enjoy whether you just want a getaway or if you are a in the area working.
Typical of the region, The Bird in Hand was originally constructed in the traditional manner in the 17th century.
Today, the inn has been totally renovated, but is still rich in original charm and gorgeous period features, such as natural Cotswold stone and heavy wooden beams.
Each of the rooms has its own unique, individual warmth and character. The oldest room is the heart of the hotel.
The huge inglenook fireplace blazes away during the cold winter nights and during the hot summer season, the hearth is decorated with a display of local flowers.
With excellent service, delicious food and a warm, friendly, relaxing atmosphere, the Inn is great as a base from which to discover the delights of the Cotswolds and surrounding areas.
