Founded by the owners of Johns’ Wine & Spirit Specialists (St Ives’ oldest family business) Beer & Bird is a craft beer bar with a difference. Not only do we sell over 100 craft beers and ciders, but we’re also Cornwall’s first gourmet fried chicken restaurant.
All of our crispy fried chicken comes from a Cornish free range chicken farm renowned for its exceptional welfare standards. Marinated in buttermilk, and coated in our secret recipe breading, our chicken is served alongside a range of mouth-watering home-made sauces and sides.
We’re beer specialists. It’s what we do. That’s why we offer over 100 in bottle, cask and keg. We’re also cider makers, producing a range of hand-crafted ciders including our own authentic Cornish Scrumpy. Add this to a back bar featuring over 30 gins, 20 rums and 40 whiskies and you’re sure to find something to wet your whistle…
We make great coffee – like, seriously great coffee. Our beans come from artisan Cornish Coffee Roasters Yallah, and our machine was custom-made in Naples, Italy. What’s more, with our Beer & Bird loyalty card, when you buy 8 coffees you get the 9th completely free!
