lovely clean quaint pub. Food was perfect, took a bit of time due to what we ordered, but was worth the wait! Staff friendly and genuine, not over the top. Food cooked properly not microwave job, coffee good as well. Would definitely eat here again.

We had a midday meal at the Cotswold Arms on Monday. The young lady who greeted us was charming and pleasant, I had the Steak & Ale pie with chips, my wife had the suet beef pie with chips and we both had a glass of house Rioja wine followed by two coffees....what can I say without repeating other reviews?...

A genuine traditional English Pub serving real local ales and very good food, both served by helpful (and attractive) waitresses. A great pleasure to visit.

We had Sunday (Easter) Roast at the Highway in Burford, and were looking for something light for dinner. We had not eaten at the Cotswold Arms before, and it is directly across from the Travelodge, where we were staying. The staff was welcoming, and we were served promptly. Both the cask ales and the meals we were served were delicious.... More

Was staying at a caravan site just down the road so did some googling and found this pub. Absolutely delicious food! Really lovely service and a reasonable price too!

After drive down through the Cotswolds and arriving in Burford, pleasant surprise to find the local council car park was free and not full, On seeing the pub across the road and being lunch time it was the first port of call, specials board outside was advertising sirloin of beef and veg or lamb shank, inside was a pleasant and...

Dropped in on Sunday for lunch. We had the roasts and both the turkey and the beef were very tasty and cooked just right. The range of veg was good and not overcooked. We had not booked and luckily found a table free. It wasn't long before people were queuing at the bar. Both the waitresses made us very welcome... More
