Good meal at a reasonable price

Had dinner here one night whilst staying in Burford.. I had a pie which was large, really tasty and the meat perfectly tender. And the actually served up veggies, which consisted of more than one vege variety. The service was very good. Highly recommended.

The kind of pub you see in the movies. Expecting to see all sorts of British characters coming in, but only saw tourist. Had fish and chips and on a scale of 1 to 10, it was probably a 4. Liked the atmosphere, so the food was OK.

Dropped into this delightful pub in the center of Burford for BH Sunday dinner. Had delicious roast beef and all the trimmings followed by lemon meringue pie... Enjoyed it so much we returned for steak and kidney pud and best burger... congrats to the chef and friendly staff.

Only one meal in four was good. The other three rated as poor. For this reason, I couldn't really recommend this place over several others we ate at in Burford. One of our party was sick after eating the lasagne - I wouldn't normally mention this but we couldn't attribute it to anything else.

Popped in here with a friend just to try it out. The menu is standard pub food at a reasonable price. What we had was ok, but nothing special (wasn't bad either).

We have had one of the best weekends away ever in Burford. To find a pub which is friendly, warm, with the best rump steak and steak pie we have ever had was a revelation. We went twice. Kissy and Emilys service and the way they looked after us was brilliant. We will be back, cant be bettered! Steve and... More

It was an enjoyable lunch for us at the Cotswold Arms today. We each had sparking water, leek and potato soup served with bread and Irish salted butter, and then shared one serving of fish and chips. Service was friendly. The seats and surrounds were comfortable. See photos uploaded. It had live music performance during some evenings. Phone the pub... More
