Visited The Mermaid on a very cold Saturday afternoon. Lovely warm atmosphere helped by multiple log burners. Good selection of beers. We all had baguettes, paninis or baked potato. All were very good served with salad. We shared a portion of very nice chips. Definitely recommended for a good lunchtime snack in a very nice atmosphere.

My partner and I had lunch here today and had such a lovely meal! We were seated upstairs by the window where we had a great view. The service and food was excellent and was great value. We will definitely recommend it and will come again when we visit Burford.

We have used this restaurant lots of times before and have always been happy. But not this time. The food was far from expectable. The food was greasy, bits cold, bits missing and burnt. Side portions were small. The custard portions where no more than a table spoon in a small pot. I know that this place can be good... More

Dog friendly pub in the High Street. A nice warm welcoming pub with several open fires. Good menu with a large selection of specials. We had the soup for lunch, which was lovely , hot and thick, served with a baguette. Pleasant staff. Good service and reasonably priced.

5 friends visited for lunch today. We had a warm welcome and were seated in the bay window at the front of this beautiful building. A great choice of menu,each choosing a different dish, which was beautifully cooked and presented, and served by friendly staff. Food and drink prices were very reasonable. 2 open fires added a homely appeal. Will... More

We had lunch which was really good - full of flavour and nicely seved but down to earth (which is more than you can say for many places in Burford). The locals by the fire were friendly, the staff behind the bar very efficient - our first choice of pub whenever we visit Burofrd s it feels very real
