What a find! A random stop on a Monday lunchtime, drawn in on the strength of a chalk board promising a sunny courtyard. The menu was awesome, leaving me in a dilemma as to what to choose. So many delightful options, I was torn between duck and cherry or beef shin pie. The beef won! Served beautifully with a stunning... More

We just happened to stop here for the night and what a pleasant visit it was! We quickly made friends with the bartender/inn keeper and the chef! They were both so nice! The chef takes so much pride in her work, you can really feel the great care she takes in each plate. A true 5 star chef! I would... More

From the courteous way in which the booking was taken to the final bill, I can only describe it as a perfect experience. Food was reasonably priced and very tasty. Pie had a top & bottom unlike lesser establishments. Staff very friendly. Will definitely go again.

Probably one of the oldest hotels we have stayed in and I beieve originated during the 15th Century. Subsequently the stairs were fairly narrow with low ceilings (as was the bedroom) which made a large suitcase somewhat interesting to manage. The en-suite room had all the facilities expected and was very comfortable and the booking included a full breakfast which... More

We visited the Highway Inn for the weekend while visiting family. We've stayed before in a quaint little double en-suite on the first floor, but this time we were allocated the Taynton suite, which is pretty much your own wing up in the eaves of this charming building! Our room was extremely cosy. Being in my early twenties I appreciate... More

We visited the Highway Inn for the weekend for some well needed rest and we got it. Situated on the high street in the Centre of Burford the Inn is quaint, clean and very friendly. Our room was lovely and just right for two. The food was also very nice and drinks readonanly priced. We will be back!

We booked this hotel through booking.com after looking at tripadvisor. The hotel is in a really good spot, Burford is the most beautiful place with lovely walks and even nicer independent shops. This hotel is charming but we feel, in need of a bit of decoration. All the staff are all really lovely and very helpful and couldn't do enough... More

The staff are very welcoming and make every effort to ensure you are looked after - this included reception, bar, restaurant and breakfast staff. The restaurant meals were of generous portions and a step up from most pub meals. Breakfast was also very nice. Getting to the attic room was like a bit of a rabbit warren. No air con... More
