This is a warm friendly inn with oodles of authentic local character, and a michelin recommended restaurant- the food here is amazing! Rooms are warm, cozy and sufficiently large, bathroom is well stocked. A good place to keep as your base for a stay in the cotswalds.

Full of character and continually being made even more comfortable by current owners. Good food both for breakfast and dinner. These people know how to cook! Comfortable bedrooms and promise of new mattresses as bed a bit hard. Well situated with parking oppposite. Individual attention and warmly greeted on arrival.

We stayed at The Highway Inn for 2 nights at the end of November. It's a lovely hotel with a friendly and warm atmosphere. Our room was warm, clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. We really appreciated the sherry which was complimentary. We ate on both nights because it was so cold and we didn't want to go out but we...

We were so fortunate to have stumbled across this 15th century inn on Burford's busy main shopping street for a late dinner. Classic pub dinner fare included rack of ribs and lamb shank entrees--both absolutely delicious! Service was outstanding!

A lovely village. The Highway Inn was small but lovely. Stayed in The Burford room which was spacious, lovely comfy mattress and super hot water (and plenty of it) for a bath. Enjoyed an evening meal where the steak was cooked perfect. Would definitely recommend.

Took a wrong turning on our way to Thornbury and arrived in Burford by accident. It is a beautiful old Cotswold village so we decided to stop by for lunch on our return journey the following day and we are so glad we did! Did bit of sightseeing then shopping and most buildings are beautiful with many being 15th or...

We are delighted you took a wrong turn so ended up visiting us. I agree, beside the open fire is a great place to sit this time of year and hard to leave. Hopefully next visit you will have more time to spend in the Highway, maybe staying in one of our rooms. I will have to keep an eye...

We enjoyed our stay here; my mum and I stayed in the twin room, Upton. It was a nice room on the second floor (not good for people who can't manage lots of stairs though!). The room was nicely furnished and clean. Our only complaint was the bathroom decor was rather tired with some peeling paint and a blind with...
