Old Boots left this review about Bird In Hand

Two bar pub as described I went in the left hand one labelled just "bar". L shape with pool, darts, jukebox and two big tellys. cask beers were Wye Valley Buttybach, and HPA, plus Three Tuns Rantipole, two low T-bars provide standard kegs and there were some cobs on sale. It's a decent local pub but busier than on Aqualung’s visit and the outside door to the lounge was open on a Friday evening. It also has a one armed landlord and hand written “cash only” signs dotted about.

The third Coton Hill pub is another local boozer. As noted below there is a public bar to the left and a separate lounge to the right. It wasn't clear if the lounge was actually open so I ended up in the public. This is an L shaped lino floored room with a TV, darts and pool table. There was also a welcoming lit fireplace.
There were three hand pumps which had one available soon, Salopian Lemon Dream and Wye Valley Butty Bach. I went for the Lemon Dream (£3.20) which was in good nick.
I didn't think this one was vastly different to the other two nearby. All three were fairly quiet on an early Wednesday evening.

On my afternoon visit I found this pub to be not too bad. The 2 cask ales were TT Landlord and Shropshire Gold. Sadly there were 3 beer bellied plasterers playing pool and not the mini-skirted bints of the previous review.
