Just taken advantage of the Sunday night stopover at The Hand. We had an amazing time - couldn’t fault anything. Delicious evening meal, lovely bottle of wine and great atmosphere. Breakfast was fab. Staff were all really friendly & welcoming We will be back!

The Hand is a delightful pub with a fantastic menu. The marinated Roast Lamb with Black Pudding was to die for as was the treacle basted Beed Cheek. The helpings are generous and the service and presentation excellent. Lovely log fire on a cold Autumn...More

It was over priced and over rated. The food was all ok, but that is all however, the food pricing was fair. The service in the restaurant was very poor. The room we had was extremely small as a double and the bed probably one...More

Dear SPASymington, Naturally I was upset to read this review. All of our rooms have been painstakingly refurbished to a very high standard but clearly they weren’t to your taste. I was most concerned, however, to read your comments about poor service. Good service is...More

About
Description
The Hand is an ancient hostelry with all the attributes you'd expect - bags of character, a cosy, relaxing ambience and a warm welcome from your hosts, Jonathan and Jackie Greatorex. As soon as you arrive More you feel the weight of the world dissolving as the surroundings work their magic. All the classic ingredients are here - old beams, roaring fireplaces, a casual mix-and-match of pine and oak furniture, real ale and good food. The latter is seriously good. Thanks to the talents of Head Chef Grant Mulholland and his team, The Hand is renowned for award-winning food, an inventive marriage of country fare and sophisticated metropolitan cuisine. The bedrooms, in a variety of sizes, reflect similar influences, with rustic decor and sparkling modern bathrooms. Country lovers just love the location. You can walk in the Berwyns for hours with only the sheep for company and the ever-helpful Hand can arrange many country pursuits, including horse riding, fishing and shooting. You may be away from it all, but you'll also be in the swing of things; this gem of a country inn is so much a part of village life that locals and visitors mix in unaffected harmony. Less
