Trading Area & Facilities

A full internal and external refurbishment will see The Bird I’th Hand completely reconfigured to maximise capacity. The transformation will increase interior covers to over 120 and exterior covers to more than 160 to meet huge demand in the area. A stunning garden room will be added while the beer garden will also be extended and redesigned, ensuring the pub has year-round appeal. Could you be the one to unlock its potential?

New bi-fold doors will open from the main trading area into the garden room which will have a slate covered roof with roof lights and bi-fold windows. The garden room will have external flag stones, beautiful furniture, warm lighting, heaters and plenty of greenery, giving it year-round appeal.

The beer garden will be extended around the right-hand side of the pub  joining the existing rear garden to create one seamless place to socialise outdoors. It will dazzle guests with planting, landscaping, new flags, new festoon lighting and suitable year-round weatherproof furniture.
