Had lunch here, a perfect steak and ale pie and home made fishcakes. We sat in the sunny courtyard and thoroughly enjoyed the trip

Nice selection of food and drinks, delicious bread and cheese! We were there during a sudden down pour as were many others, but even in the wet rush the service was good.

Ignore previous review. We go to the Merm weekly and have done for a few years, it's unbeatable for a local pub and a cracking place to eat! :D

A lovely pub/restaurant in a delightful village. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious (I can highly recommend the Sweet Chilli Stir Fry!) Would certainly visit again!

On the Thursday we sat at a table for two at an upstairs window, so we could look out onto the High Street and watch the world go by. On the Friday the window... More

We sat outside for a pint and a glass of wine. The picnic tables were fine, the exterior view of the inn is very attractive, and the baked brie that we ordered with our drinks was delicious. I would go back to this spot on the main street of Burford for people watching and a great cheese appetizer.

We came here for a family birthday meal, it was really good, we all had a lovely meal, it has a really nice atmosphere and friendly staff, it is a bit pricer than some places but well worth it. Unfortunately we couldn't find any baby change facilities which was a shame, but that was the only negative, it was a... More
