Booked into the Royal Oak, due to it's price compared with other accommodation in Burford, and we were not disappointed. Other reviews refer to the food in the restaurant, but WOW, had one of their steak and ale pies, really really nice, the wife had a steak and it was cooked to perfection, and tasted great.

My wife and I came here looking for a quiet weekend away and found just what we needed. The pub is located just away from the main road through Burford, far enough to provide a peaceful atmosphere. There were a few points about the room that just held back from being a perfect stay. Poor TV signal limited the available... More

Room was nice and clean but plugs overloaded. Small screen TV mounted on wall pointing in weird direction which was very erratic with no ITV or Channel 5. Could not get WiFi unless I stood next to window. Bathroom shower not good with no water power. There were no toiletries provided except one of those small soaps.. Told by landlady... More

Stayed just one night as we were attending a wedding in the area. Friendly welcome to a lovely pub with stone floors and lots of atmosphere. Arrived at lunchtime so decided to have lunch – shared a Baked Camembert starter followed by delicious Thai Fish Cakes on a bed of salad washed down with a pint of Wadworth’s Horizon and... More

The room was large and comfortable, as was the bed. The room is reached by an outside staircase so one is completely independent. The pub is in very quiet location and breakfast was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at the Royal Oak and if one word could describe our stay, it would be 'WOW!!!'. We arrived earlier than the advertised 2pm check in time but as the room was ready we were able to drop our bags off straight away and enjoy a excellent snack in the bar. The hosts,... More

Dog friendly, excellent service, lovely friendly atmosphere and superb food - the steak and ale pie is amazing, full of steak and delicious pastry case. The fish pie was also delicious. We would definitely recommend the Royal Oak for food.

We stayed at the Royal Oak for one night having attended a funeral in Bourton-on-the-water. The young couple who own it with his parents were so welcoming and friendly. A lovely atmosphere in the place. Our room was delightful and perfect for this occasion. Only downside was the dinner menu was very over-priced. The accommodation itself was affordable but sadly...

A chance late booking for a group of 11 on a Sunday (booked the week before). We needed some post birthday celebration homely food & we descended on the Royal Oak in Burford. Easy to find, lots of free parking & food to die for. No plate was left clear because the food was fantastic. We tasted both the Sunday... More
