Good tasty food,(the burger and steak and ale pie),well presented and reasonably priced served by a very personable member of staff.In our opinion the Highway lived up to its previous good reviews.We are an older local couple who have previously felt that perhaps eating out in Burford meant eating touristy food.How wrong we were in the case of The Highway.Other...

My husband and I recently visited the Highway on a Friday night, it was busy but they found us a table, we had the burger and the baby back ribs both were cooked to perfection, the service was excellent and we will definitely be back soon.

Thanks very much for your kind feedback. I am so glad you loved our Highway restaurant, and the food and service we gave on Friday. We are really passionate about our food, we have high expectations ourselves when we go out, so we expect to deliver the same at our hotel & restaurant. We like to keep the service informal... More

Run by some really nice people, very welcoming and helpful. The food was great, both dinner and breakfast. My room was clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend it as a place to eat or to stay. It's a very old building and ceiling heights are a bit low in places though not a problem for me!

Our first impressions of the hotel were that of a welcoming and warm Establishment on a historically rich street. Our room was extremely comfortable and took us back the tudor era. When we stepped down for dinner we were both impressed with the presentation and taste of our meals. 12 hour cooked duck, yum! Breakfast was as equally pleasing! Overall... More

There was attentive service throughout our stay and every meal was amazing. Confit of duck, lemon posset, steak and the breakfasts were delicious. whole sea bass- delicious.

Came home yesterday after two nights here with an Amazon voucher offer. After reading previous reviews, we did expect to have a wonderful time. Yes, the hotel is old and quirky and the décor is good. Our room at the front overlooking the road was small but adequate, although no hanging space to speak of. We kept it warm by... More

I am sorry you did not feel you had the best experience, I believe you had already eaten with us the first night, so we would not normally ask if you wanted to book a table again, however it is unfortunate that we were so busy the night you wanted, and I understand that you only wanted to eat in...

We spent a night here last week using an Amazon Local voucher, a present for my husbands birthday. Lovely old hotel with friendly staff, a very good two course dinner and lovely breakfast with local produce. Sherry in the room was a welcome touch! Burford is an interesting Cotswold town to wander for a few hours with plenty of cafes... More

Stayed for two nights as a winter break. Very nice rooms and good breakfasts. Apart from the usual tea/coffee facilities in the room, a decanter with dry sherry was also provided - very acceptable. We eat in one evening and had a lunch and were served promptly with good food on both occasions.. The location is excellent - right in... More

Booked a two night break using an Amazon Local voucher. I left it late to book and the only room available was a small double room with en-suite shower, which I accepted. However the small double turned out to be a draughty attic room under the eaves, my fault for not booking earlier but the room had everything we needed.... More
