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 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

we popped in for a drink and liked the place so much we remained for 2 nights, staying in the Astel room at the top. Breakfast was fantastic as was the very friendly and prompt service. It is a dog friendly place but beware the £10 per night dog charge if staying which I felt was a little steep. All... More

Conveniently situated near the top of the High Street in Burford. Trendy. Bare boards, stripped wooden tables. Friendly staff and good beer. One of the better more atmospheric bars in Burford. windows give good view onto the busy street.

Top marks for a friendly atmosphere, lovely attentive and happy staff! Excellent meal here last night with my husband. Well done chef!

Lovely goats cheese and beetroot dish - perfect for a light lunch. Pudding of Panacotta with caramel sauce delicious too. Very friendly staff. Will return when next in Burford, which is a great meeting place for a day out with friends.

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...
