Recently acquired and refurbished by Wadworth, the Bird in Hand dates back to the 14th century, and has its share of history; apparently George III visited here. Obviously Wadworth supply the ales, but the food is all home-made. Start with ham hock terrine with pickled vegetables, or venison and Armagnac pate with crostini; then continue with wild mushroom linguine, smoked trout and beetroot salad with horseradish creme fraiche, or Thai green chicken and coconut curry. If you've room, there's plum frangipane tart or seasonal fruit crumble for afters.
