    Didn't realise til just now sitting in the Bird that they've put the prices up and added the large plates to the menu.

    Still reasonable value and better quality than comparative establishments.

    They've now got a screen in the front bar and a larger one in the games? room at the back for live sports.

    At last a pub in town serving good beer and showing live sport :)

    The reputation of the bird in hand being a great pub has reached south shields. South shields fc are playing Stafford Rangers on Saturday. Their fans have booked into the bird in hand for pre match beers and food.

    The South shields are very friendly lot and will be bringing 400 fans to stafford.

    Just don't, whatever you do, call them geordies. They're sand-dancers.

    Sounds like a euphemism for Kevin Spacey!

    Anyhoo, just been in for a quick pint as I've had an increasingly rare day in Stafford.

    Lovely :)

    Had food and beers in there last night. Completely different pub compared to the pub of old. Good food and beer.

    Sitting in the Bird enjoying the sloe gin cider and the old story telling mob have turned up. I'm not knocking non drinkers at all but this crowd seem adamant not to spend any money but still use the free facilities of the back room.

    One even ordered a pint of free soda then added at the last moment lime cordial and moaned when she was charged for the cordial!!!

    It's good to see people socialising but not when they're taking the pee!!!!
