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.

Very good café food with a good selection of cakes and pastries both to eat in and take away. Good service with a relaxed atmosphere and a place where you can have a light meal or just a drink. Burford is a beautiful town and this is a great place to go to after seeing the sights. only one flaw:... More

The (predominantly young) staff are all friendly and efficient, shooting out to greet you as you enter. The cakes and other food are lovely but quite expensive. There is no pressure to vacate your table. Good atmosphere.

We had coffee and cakes at Maison Blanc. The food was good but the design and atmosphere of this branch were poor. The price of the cakes (£5.20 for a small cake!) was prohibitive. The service was OK. Average overall.

Visited with three friends and their young son, expecting an establishment bearing Raymond Blanc's name to be above the norm. The place was dirty, the floors needed a sweep, the tables were in need of a good wipe down and the pace was shabby but not chic. The sandwiches were poor,those of a major chain have more taste, The presentation... More

Having had the pleasure of visiting both the Oxford and Winchester branches a chance to visit the Burford branch whilst in the town could not be missed. Though the quality of product seems to be consistent across all branches the service and appearance of the Burford branch seems to be an issue. Firstly we were served by a member of... More

The cake selection is fantastic and well presented. However the place was a bit scrappy needing a wipe down with a clean! cloth. The service was slow, really slow, asked the waiter nicely for the bill and he forgot and wandered off out back. Was not busy, about half full. Worst flat white I have had in ages. Milk steamed...

Ken, I am sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your Flat White and that your waiter forgot to bring you the bill you had requested - this is very disappointing.

My wife and I visited on Saturday and were warmly greeted. Our order was taken promptly and the food arrived shortly afterwards; as ever it was delicious and served with a smile. If you are in Burford and want a pleasant meal in delightful surroundings look no further. We look forward to our next visit.
