A very nice little restaurant situated at the top end of what is quintessentially a very pretty and historical little English village, full of quirky half-timbered houses. The High Street is quite steeped and the houses lining the High Street bear a distinct out-of-kilter appearance, all of which add to the charm of this pretty and popular Cotswold village. The...

I have had breakfast here on a number of occasions, however my most recent visit was more than disappointing. My husband and i ordered the English breakfast but when it arrived we were presented with the chewiest and driest mushrooms ever and in addition sauteed potatoes that hed been boiled and definitely not seen any oil of any description. We... More

I am very disappointed to read this review and saddened the problem could not have been resolved on the day. Although we offered replacement breakfasts which were declined, it is deeply regrettable that we should reach that situation in the first instance. I have passed your feedback in its entirety to our chefs, and we welcome you back to demonstrate... More

Cake was delicious if a little expensive. The most disappointing bit was the decor which was extremely tired. We were sitting on a stained banquette which looked and felt grubby.

Sit outside with a delightful Maison Blanc Cream Tea on a summer's afternoon watching the world go by (or at least the citizens of Burford), and no matter where you're from you'll feel quintessentially English. You look across the road and see a row of eccentric, ancient, stooped and out of square buildings that connect you into a world 400... More

We came here on the strength of the recommendation from our B&B host, who felt Maison Blanc offered the best afternoon tea in town. The tea and coffee were outstanding, as were the scones and sandwiches. Service was prompt, friendly, and attentive. Prices were very reasonable. As it was near closing time, the server added a few extras at no... More

Maison Blanc has good products. It feels like sitting in a shop and the service has no heart. The teashop is just the last one on the hill. Sitting outside is not very comfortable.

I was meeting a friend, but arrived in time for a solo lunch, even after waiting a good few minutes to be seated (it was not busy) at a grubby table which the waitress asked if I'd like her to wipe! I had the goats cheese salad which was delicious, but when I asked what sort of cheese it was,... More

Initially tried to buy two coffees from the café across the road, but they had no change and it was first thing in the morning. Though pricey MB had change and a stunning array of patisserie on offer. Good, quick and friendly service.
