This is a lovely English pub with rooms. We stayed in the superior room. As the previous guest review stated the bed was large and firm but the room was large enough to take it. We did find it cold at first, it was one degree outside and maybe it was because the previous guests had forced the window. The... More

A good priced place to stay over whilst en-route to London. Such a shame as so many little things fell short of the mark. We paid for a 'Superior' room which looked lovely but the massive bed was far too big for the room and good grief, it was hard! The radiator was extremely dusty and we had to put... More

Visited about a year ago while on business in the area. Staff friendly then and still the same today. The food back then was excellent and , once again, superb today. Nice to see after a year. Recommend a pie, any pie they are all wonderful, based on my experience so far. Off the high street, near the Bull hotel,... More

The food, service, cleanliness are all spot on and the landlord and landlady make your visit very inviting and enjoyable. I would highly recommend a visit and again and again whether you are just visiting burford or live in the area

Stayed here when attending a wedding in Burford - comfortable room with cosy feel, good value and very delicious breakfast, traditional full English. Found just off the High Street so very convenient location and has free parking (although not many spaces, but only two rooms (I think) so wasn't a problem. Would recommend.

Enjoyed an excellent stay at the Royal Oak. Our room was very cosy with a nice traditional feel to it - shae the shower wasnt working - but it was being completed the day after our stay so cant really knock someone for that. The pub was slightly tired - but again understand that a refurbishment is imminent and look... More

Thank you for your review and your comments relating to our 'cosy and traditional' room. The new electric shower was installed the day after your stay as explained on check in. Thanks again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again. More

We have stayed in Burford on many occasions for one or two nights and have tried most of the accommodation on offer. The comfort and friendliness of The Royal Oak is as good as any of them and better than most. The owners took over six months ago and have made such a difference. They could not have been more...

The owners were welcoming and friendly. The room and facilities were very clean and the bed was so comfortable. The decor was a bit jaded and the owner noted that a refurbishment was in the pipe-line. The shower was useless but the bath was fine, which the owner had pointed out - it is an old building after all. We... More

We stumbled upon this place after a recommendation. Food and service was exemplary, with the food great value for money. The home made pies are a must. Great cosy atmosphere with log fire. Definitely a recommendation for ford and drinks. Location is great just off the high street.
