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

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.

We stayed for two nights and had a fabulous time. We stayed in the Superior room which was a good size with a fabulous bed. The shower in the bathroom had pressure problems but it is going to be revamped. There was a slight hiccup with the cleaning of the room but it was soon rectified. We ate there for... More

From the first minute walking into the Royal Oak we were made to feel welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and a good choice on the menu. The service was first class. The bar area was very welcoming from the local customers. The room was comfortable, clean with plenty of space. The bathroom was... More

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.
