Huffkins is a bit unusual. We are an independent family business with our own craft bakery and a heritage that stretches back to 1890. Established in Burford, at the heart of the Cotswolds, by Mr Titcombe our breads and cakes were originally delivered by donkey and cart. Given the impracticalities of donkeys we have modernised some things over the years - but we still bake everything by hand. Our bakers work through the night to create everything from the bread for our sandwiches to the fresh cream cakes in our shops. We believe very firmly in sourcing ingredients locally wherever possible. Now whilst there is clearly not an abundance of tuna fish in the local rivers there are surprisingly few things that do not grow in the Cotswolds. And when we do grow something it tends to be good. Very good in fact. Our chefs take a keen interest in every ingredient that enters our kitchens from field to plate. So when, for instance, you ask for a sausage bap at Huffkins you can expect Cotswold pork sausages made by WJ Castles of Burford to our own traditional recipe in a handmade bap from our bakery made with FWP Matthew's flour from Shipton under Wychwood, served with Huffkins spicy tomato ketchup made at our own kitchen in Stow-on-the-Wold. We believe in real Cotswold food. Even our teas, which we buy directly from the finest small producers around the world are blended with local ingredients including Cotswold fruits and lavender from Snowshill near Broadway. The only thing we cannot get to grow locally is good staff - so regrettably you are stuck with whatever we could find. Many have been with us an awfully long time. Too long perhaps. Yet all jokes apart many of the team hold awards for 3, 5, 10 and even 15 years of service. Just look out for coloured lapel pins if you fancy spotting the old-timers.

Lovely afternoon tea

We did have to queue because it is very popular but well worth the wait. Cosy old fashioned restaurant with good food. We had afternoon tea with a good selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes. £15 a head, which isn't cheap but comparable to other places we've had afternoon tea

We were welcomed and seated very quickly despite it being busy. I tried the strawberry smoothie whilst the wife had a coffee. After seeing afternoon tea at the next table we decided to order our own plain scones. Very very nice!!! If I hadn't had a full English earlier that morning I might have ordered a second! The staff were... More

We visited Huffkins Burford cafe for a Sunday afternoon tea and cake whilst on a visit into Burford. We enjoyed tea, cappuccino, toasted teacake and a bakewell tart. Very good friendly service and the cafe was clean and relaxed. We look forward to coming back very soon!

Popped in for a light lunch whilst visiting Witney. Fantastic options and first class quality. The Almond cakes are strongly recommended. Looking forward to another visit. Very busy and not really a relaxing location.

Beautiful carrot cake and éclairs. Worth a visit as they have a tea room and bakery for takeaway food and drink

Friendly service, good food, nice ambience. Lovely breads from the bakery next door. Sausage and bacon rolls are to die for. Great for brunch. Good healthy portions too!

We had a lovely afternoon tea, the price seemed dear at first and after the waitress pointed out several times that it was £15 each I imagine other people have thought the same. I was surprised at how much was brought out! So much so we couldn't finish all the lovely food having to get a doggie bag! It was... More

We went in for Lunch on New Years Eve, had a 10 minute wait for a table, reasonable for here. All the food was good and the young man serving us was very pleasant and friendly, great atmosphere in here. Nice for Lunch

My husband and I spend a two or three weeks staying in Burford every September. Huffkins is one of our first stops. The restaurant is great and the takeaway bakery is brilliant.

Ate here over the Christmas period. A real buzz giving a warm atmosphere. Staff were so pleasant and efficient, and the food was first-class.
