Tired

Passing through Burford I've always stopped off for a coffee and snack at Maison Blanc as their coffee was usually very good. This time the coffee was ok but the place seemed a bit down at heel and the service slow. I think thay must have cut back on staff as there seemed to be less in evidence and... read more

The food in this place is very good. Great choice of breakfasts, cakes, etc... The staff was lovely too so no complaints there. However, while the decor is cute, the dining tables and the toilet need better clean up than the one they currently practice. Also, the leather sofa you sit on has seen better days....it's heavily stained and really... More

We are regular customers of Maison Blanc. We stopped at the Burford address for a cake and coffee and it was excellent. The coffees were made to perfection and the cakes were very good. A good address for an afternoon break.

We went to this cafe today for lunch. When we arrived we had to immediately move tables because our table was sticky and horrible. We ordered our lunch: one quiche Lorraine, one goats cheese quiche and one BLT sandwich. We asked what came with the quiches and were told salad. When the food arrived the quiches were tiny, maybe around... More

We stopped for tea in Burford and thought this would be a good place. Not so today. They don't have decaf tea so I ordered a Cappuccino and received an Americano. You didn't order a Cappuccino argued the po faced waitress, who was devoid of an ounce of personality. My wife used the toilet and reported it was one of... More

Situated at the top end of the high street of the pretty Cotswold village of Burford this charming tea room offers a great range of the famous Maison Blanc cakes and some tasty savoury items as well. There is inside and limited outside seating where you can sit enjoy the excellent coffee and pastries and watch the heavy traffic trundle... More

Wonderful location, superb coffee and a range of exquisite pastries. Not cheap, but a treat does you good!

It's nice enough, but not enough attention to detail! Outside tables not clean.... It needs some more experienced staff, who work there long term, not as a summer job!

We stopped for a light Sunday lunch. Good choice and pleasant enough surroundings. Service a bit hit and miss. Food and drinks good though and some nice quirky choices. A bit of effort could make this place so much better.
