Just a sandwich but one of the best ever! Hubby had chicken and avocado and I had Brie and tomato and they where both delicious, very friendly landlady and a bowl of water for the dogs, what more could you ask for on hot sunny day. Highly recommend.

We stayed for two nights (15 & 16 July 2016) at The Highway Inn, Burford. Very homely and pleasant atmosphere. Room was very good with good bathroom. Food was excellent and staff friendly and efficient.

We visited this pub restaurant while passing through Burford. It was very pleasant and rustic/quaint. The menu wasn't huge and a few items weren't on the menu which was a little disappointing. However there was still enough choice and what we had was excellent. Well cooked and good sized portions. Also reasonable prices. We would definitely go again.

Great little hotel in a very interesting and pretty small town. Good bar with excellent beers, very good quality food, service was friendly and quick. Our room was compact but very comfortable, a nice bed. There was good street parking for free, all in all a very enjoyable stay and would go back again.

We stayed here for one night and would not return. We booked through booking.com and were lead to believe we were getting a £140.00 room for £70, it was clearly too good to be true. We arrived and were met by a very pleasant member of staff who took us to our drab and dreary room. It was basic to... More

We stayed in June 2016 for one night, from my initial phone call which lead to me booking to our stay all the staff were very welcoming and friendly, even though we arrived after 9.30pm.

Stayed at The Highway Inn Burford recently. Firstly, the staff were very friendly and breakfasts were very good. I'm afraid to say that the room left quite a bit to be desired, the room was drab and very tired. The bed had a short canopy over it, this canopy was very dusty and after running a finger over it there... More

I am sorry you were not happy with your room when you stayed with us. We have had mixed feedback about this bed some people loved it, some did not. We did decide to change it so there is now a new bed with no canopy. As for the rips in the duvet cover, they are not actually rips, they... More
