Reading through the reviews it would seem I am repeating the other locals. Genral manager was completely rude. I only asked if my friend (a former member of staff) was working. After work pint aborted, and wont be going back. This is Burford not Birmingham.

Stayed here every week for a couple of months now. Staff are really friendly, in particular Lee who is always quick to serve you at breakfast or when checking in/out and just friendly in general. Buffet breakfast is ok and dinner is really good with the option of eating in the restaurant or ordering to your room. Only thing is...

Our daughter and I have stayed here overnight on a number of occasions, and have previously had good visits, and enjoyed ourselves here. We arrived about mid day for lunch and ordered paninis. We waited and waited, getting anxious as we had an appointment in Oxford in the afternoon. Eventually two baguettes were brought, but as these were not correct,...

With the exception of last year we had been using the restaurant as a equidistant family Xmas get together for approx 8/10 years, all times the food and service was wonderful. We were aware the hotel had changed hands but were keen to continue our patronage.Our party of 20 and as previous years we were allocated the large dining room...

We were travelling on 10/12/16 in pouring rain (from Aust), could not see anything and very wet and dangerous on the roads. We met the manager Lee Goodchild and his offsider. They advised they had no accomm but kindly rung (and they didn't have to),...

What can I say? Pretty poor, ordered two panini and one baguette, three panini arrived so had to send one back to find when the baguette arrived the cheese in the tuna onion and cheddar baguette was missing. Sent it back - 3rd time lucky! On this experience I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

Very disappointed with staff and attitude. Starters came out wrong then one main meal late as forgotten, then Salmon not cooked properly, sent back twice and then gave up as other guests had finished meal. No apology just won't be charged for Salmon we never got, but 15%off bill. Still thought we'd have pudding but no one around to take...

Have always wondered what this place was like for food having driven past it so many times and so decided to stop and find out with my son one evening in December. Arrived just before the restaurant / bar was open at 6pm. As a result had to go and find someone at reception to get some service, but once...
