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! We were made to feel very welcome and will most certainly be returning on a regular basis . Highly recommended for anyone staying in Burford or just passing through .

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...

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.

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

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...
