Good english breakfasts

We were in Buford on business and decided to stop for a late breakfast. I'd spotted the Priory earlier because they were hosting a breakfast for a Harley Davidson ride out with all the bikes parked outside. I thought we'd give it a go and we got there at 11:20am just in time for their breakfast... read more

We popped into The Priory at about 12.00, just at the start of lunchtime and the restaurant was already full and busy. We stopped in Burford on the way to Kelmscott Manor where we had a booked ticket for 14.30. We only wanted a drink and the two staff waiting were already very busy. No matter. The service was polite... More

Went here with 3 friends on Sunday 16th August for lunch. Sat outside in the garden - nice environment and the weather was good. Order was taken relatively quickly and drinks arrived promptly - food then arrived in dribs and drabs and as we were sat outside I started my meal so it didn't go cold and had almost finished...

Called in here at the start of our break in the Cotswold, what a great start to our hols! Burford is a lovely little village, everyone so friendly, high street and shops so clean and well maintained. The Priory had a lovely atmosphere with families and couples starting their day with breakfast in the original beamed surroundings. Tables and environment... More

Popped in for breakfast with my niece, food was amazing and great value for money... The full English certainly hit the spot. Niece had mushrooms, tomato, bacon & toast and ate the lot. Service was excellent, very attentive and friendly. Can't wait for my next visit.

Popped in for breakfast on a Sunday morning, weather was nice so we sat in the courtyard out the back, lots of tables and lots of flowers, very nice. Had the priority breakfast which was good. We ordered a pot of tea for two and were disappointment with the size, the pot barely allowed for 1 small cup each! We... More

My Mum, young son and I visited the Priory restaurant today for lunch. We all had the homemade soup (they make it from scratch & boy could you tell, it was delicious), which was served with a lovely, toasted granary baguette. The waitress was very friendly and was more than happy to let us sample the soup before we placed... More

Saturday lunchtime visit, we were attended by a very helpful man who recommend the chicken burger which was in fact a whole chicken breast cooked with Cajun spices, very nice. However, my wife's fish cakes which promised much in their description were very bland. Interestingly, these were not homemade, so again, good simple well cooked food triumphs over style!

Hard to find a good cafe or bistro serving food early morning. This one was perfect. A nice oldie worldly building with good seating and tables with space to read the paper whilst the breakfast was cooking. The food was perfect, excellent quality and quantity with good coffee.
