About Bird in Hand

The Surrey village of Mayford has more than a roundabout at its centre – it’s got The Bird In Hand, a British pub that’s been given a new lease of life thanks to a sensitive refurbishment and the wise counsel of new management. This handsome establishment along Egley Road boasts a restored fireplace, offering you the chance to hunker down with a pint of real ale or glass of wine, while the restaurant is packed with pub grub classics – and a few surprises. A local fixture, those from Woking can rest assured that it’s a quick trip to Worplesdon station if they’d like to enjoy this classic tavern.

More about Bird in Hand, Woking

Once a rather dismal drinking hole, The Bird In Hand has benefitted from the tender loving care of local Woking boys Mike, Markus and Sean, transforming into a modern pub and restaurant without losing too much of the rustic charm of the original. A quick spit and polish this was not, however – The Bird In Hand is now one of Mayford and the surrounding area’s best dining and drinking opportunities and the changes wrought inside this Egley Road venue are a sight to behold, with the traditional nooks and crannies being repurposed into well-lit, social spaces that are ideal for a simple tipple or a full-on feast.

Of prime importance to The Bird In Hand is, of course, the bar. It’s stocked with a range of local beers from the Woking area, ales, cider, organic wines… and the bartenders have nous enough to whip up any cocktail you can imagine. Nicely separated from the bar room, the restaurant oozes formal charm but remains as relaxed as the village of Mayford, with a menu that reflects a casual but considered culinary curatorial approach. Small plates and sharers like the Bird In Hand signature platter of cured European meats and room-temperature manchego cheese are good to kickstart an evening, while bigger appetites will lap up the classic British pub grub options given a modern twist.

Lovely food, a little bit different from the usual... But it works! Sweet, friendly staff. Good ambience. Can be quite loud when full. Definitely recommend.

Good atmosphere and had a fantastic meal choosing the fish off the specials board. Good sized portions throughout all three courses. Definitely go back again and would recommend to book as restaurant was full.

Excellent meal. Sunday lunch is awesome. Can’t recommend enough. See my review on trip advisor for more detail but you won’t be disappointed. Excellent bar menu as well.
