Dropped in for a 'quick'!? Coffee on a bike ride c.1100 on a Friday morning. This is the 4th time I've been here and the location is lovely. In fact each time I've been to Burford I drop in to the Priory and I will continue to patronise this establishment. However, the service on every single visit has been terribly... More

The accommodation off the courtyard is compact, quiet and very clean. The shower controls were very confusing and the owner has said he will write some plain instructions. Other than that it was great. Breakfast in the morning was excellent though starting at 9am is too late for travellers who wish to get on their way at a reasonable time.

This was a real find. We hadn't planned to stop in Burford but are very glad we did. The food was great and the service was fabulous. We were able to use the wifi to FaceTime with our grandsons and it was perfectly acceptable as it was a quiet time at the restaurant. We would love to return and sit... More

My family and I have been coming here for years - it is such a special place. On a sunny day, it doesn't get better than sitting in quaint courtyard surrounded by flowers. The food is easy, delicious and inexpensive from cake to curry! Breakfast, lunch, cream teas, even the coffee - spot on. What I love most about this... More

When we had lunch here recently, it seemed like the staff were just having one of those days were everything was going wrong for them, they got our order wrong so that the starters and mains came out at the same time, and then our waiter, while trying to fix the wobbly table, managed to knock one of our main...

We arrived at 9pm and as they were already shut, instructions were left at the door. The instructions were very clear and we enjoyed a late dinner in the restaurant garden outside the rooms. The bathrooms were clean, the breakfast nice. The tea and coffee facilities were also very good including bottles of still and sparkling water. The rooms were... More

Thanks to Justin for taking us in at the last moment for BandB. Comfortable rooms, friendly and very helpful staff and reasonably priced. Great location in centre of town. Nice to sit peacefully in the garden after the restaurant had closed. Felt like we were the only people in the Cotswolds at the time!

Were lucky to park right in front of this restaurant offering B & B on our trip in the UK They had a small but lovely room out in the back courtyard, everything you need in a B & B. Keep a look out for this one on your travels.

We called in here, and sat outside in the sun. Yes the traffic was busy, but it was great watching the world go by, and enjoying some fabulous food! We both enjoyed a delicous spicey chicken sald so full of taste, you wouldnt expect it from such a small venue. Great food, great view, great location and great staff!
