We stayed in this lovely Inn in the centre of Burford to meet friends for the weekend. We reserved a table for the evening for 4, just in case we couldn't get in anywhere else? So pleased we did, as it was busy but the food & service was great. Staff attentive, food fabulous and the morning breakfast was plentiful... More

Burford is an excellent location for touring the Cotswolds. The Highway Inn is located on the High Street within walking distances of all the town has to offer besides being very close to restaurants, shops and bars. The Inn, built in 1480, is full of character. The food was top class, both dinner and breakfast and the staff were brilliant.... More

A friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights recently and we were not disappointed. We requested a twin room upon booking and were accommodated in the family room which was a good size, with a double and a single bed, two chairs, a little table and an en suite bathroom with a shower over the bath.

I've been a regular at The Highway for several years. I've always liked it, but the food has just got better and better, without getting more expensive. I took my extended family there last night and we couldn't stop ooh-ing and aah-ing about how great the food was. It's modern without being 'trendy'. Plus friendly staff who are not too... More

Perfect place to go for a nice dinner in Burford. Staff were great and food was outstanding, as well as being very well priced! We visited on a Saturday night and service was extremely quick, the Cotswolds beer was also very tasty! Would definitely return.

My partner and I ate here on two consecutive evenings while on short cotswold break, and we loved it. The food was great and the severe charming. Our dog was offered water and biscuits too! Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I spent this last weekend at this quaint hotel. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the staff could not do enough for us. We had our meal there on our first night and were so impressed we ate there the second night. We will definitely stay here again when we return to the area.

We booked a table at the Highway Inn following research on TA and it did not disappoint. Living in the Cotswolds, there is no shortage of country pubs but you have to be wary of the overly touristy options. We were a party of 11 for Sun lunch for my Grans Birthday and we have to cater for anything from... More
