We stayed here for 2 nights in the Superior double room and it was great. Our hosts were really welcoming and couldn't do enough for us, considering they have only been there 3 months, the atmosphere was really good and the pub always busy with locals. The food was outstanding, their speciality is pies and they certainly didn't disappoint, my... More

Booked for a weekend away and were not disappointed. A friendly and warm welcome from John and Jeanette made for a good start. Our room was the standard double, which was more spacious than expected, clean, tidy and well equipped. The 2 rooms have their own entrance, so can be accessed without going through the pub.

My partner and I stayed here for his birthday recently. We stayed in the Double Superior which was well worth the money. The room has its own access so you don't need to go through the pub if your late back. Very relaxing and quiet location set off the main Burford High Street. We had dinner in the bar the... More

Wow what a find! Reasonable prices and fantastic food! My husband had the steak, cooked to perfection and tender, whilst I went for the homemade burger, which is one of the best I have ever had from a pub. Owners are very welcoming and make you feel right at home. Will definitely be back.

Took a chance and decided to stay for a night. So glad we did, we were not disappointed. A very clean, tidy room was allocated and the fresh air was fantastic. The place was so quiet that it made the dawn chorus deafening.. We had an evening meal and again we were not disappointed. The beer was excellent, kept well... More

Booked in for Sunday lunch and were advised a table would be available at 1.30. Arrived earlier so had a drink in the garden and then were shown to a very small table right next door to the kitchen door which was not very nice having seen plenty of empty much nicer tables available in the pub. Food was very... More

Amazing value for such a central location in Burford. Comfy character room with good facilities (we loved the rocking chair), and enjoyed a tasty breakfast. We didn't have the opportunity to eat dinner there. Very friendly couple running this establishment who haven't been there long. We wish them all the best for the future, they deserve to do well.

This chef knows how to make a pie ... I had the chicken pie and my partner has the steak and ale pie - they were both absolutely delicious. Everyone was friendly and helpful and the bar has free wifi which is always welcome.

Lovely and friendly owners and great wine.. keep up the good work and thank the chef for a great... More
