We stayed for three nights in a village within walking distance of Burford and booked for dinner at The Mermaid Inn for the first two evenings. 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

Me and my family went in here today as a last minute thing.. Being #8 on here we were expecting it to be okay. Firstly after 20 minutes of waiting for our order to be taken (which is funny as the pub was completely dead) we ordered the artizan bread to share. This was hard, it barely soaked up the... More

A Saturday night in The Mermaid, a live band playing covers from The Eagles, Stones and many more rock bands, kept us tapping our feet. Fast efficient service ensured we were served quickly. We enjoyed our 2 hrs in this pub

From the outside very attractive looking place. We went inside to the garden, but due to quite a few of flying ants, we decided to eat inside. I choose the ribs, and my girlfriend had the honey smoked ham. We were quite disappointing, as it was not what we expected. It tasted quite dull and the sauce of the ribs... More
