Komakino . left this review about Bird In Hand

A 30s-style oblong boozer on the West Wycombe Road with some nice full-height wood panelling and stained glass inserts. Formerly a two roomed incarnation if the stained glass sign 'Lounge Bar' over the right-hand entrance is anything to go by, this has now predictably been opened up, but still retains a bar billiards table in its far right-hand corner, with a conservatory extension in the far-left corner, which houses a pool table. Two ales were on offer - Sharp's Doom Bar and Otter Bitter. Two attempts at the Otter produced a glass full of sea monkeys much to the barmaids' and my astonishment (all three of them crowded around the glass to peer at the bits in suspension). A switch to the Doom Bar found a surprisingly decent beer, with a nice biscuity malt finish, so fair play to them for for exceeding expectation there, even if they negated to turn the Otter clip around. On the one hand I was surprised and a little impressed with the interior (I came here a few year ago, but obviously didn;t soak in my surrounds), but the service was a little icy the clientele a little 'geezerish' and with the most expensive item on their food menu coming in at £5, it does make you wonder about the provenance.
