Nothing Special

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!

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

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.

Great spot in Burford to have an impromptu breakfast. Not the cheapest but good quality. The almond croissant is well worth a return visit. Coffee is good as well. Outside seating is on a steep pavement which is a challenge though...

We frequently make the trip from Reading for breakfast and have never been disappointed, today was no different. We were greeted warmly, our order taken promptly and the food arrived shortly afterwards. It was hot and as tasty as ever. Service was polite and attentive without being intrusive. Recommended and we look forward to visiting again shortly.

We tried this a couple of times and were disappointed.l Apparently the only connection with Raymond Blanc is the name. Even the French Onion Soup was poor.l Tourist Trap, best avoided.

Visited for Sunday breakfast as it was the only cafe open. Was shocked by the exterior appearance with dirty, flaking paint on the window frames ( I have seen a review for April 2014 with a similar comment. The manager did respond saying that new decoration was iminent, but obviously still waiting over a year later) We sat inside but... More

Perfectly placed at the top of hill in Burford. I found the place lovely and bright and definitely clean inside. The staff behind the counter were all smiling which is a good sign. Once seated we waited to be served, and waited and waited. In a restaurant that had two other tables approx five other customers it was hard to... More

Had a sausage roll and a chicken sandwich, both really fresh and served by lovely staff, very clean and modern, it was the only place busy which is why we eat there.

Visited for lunch today. Very poor chicken sandwich - processed chicken. Expected more from here. Fish cake was good but thought something else would come with it for the price of the dish - salad dressing wasn't to my taste! Staff were attentive & our waitress was friendly but I don't expect other staff to be behind the main counter... More
