We were en route from Kent to Broadway and stopped for a mooch about in Burford and a bite to eat. The Priory looked inviting and we had a late snack type lunch, eg. jacket potatoes, baguettes etc. The portions were very generous, freshly prepared and friendly waitress! Recommended.

Visited previously with relatives back in November. I was very impressed so came back on Saturday & it was even better than my initial visit. Wonderful service and gorgeous food. Portions are so generous and this establishment is more than reasonably priced. Will definitely be returning. Thank you so much for a wonderful lunch!

We had been recommended the breakfast here and were not disappointed, everything was cooked to perfection! And as an added bonus it was excellent value for money.

Stopped by Burford on the way to Blenheim palace. As we were walking through this lovely village we fancied a roast, this place looked cozy so we went in. The layout is really warm and welcoming. We sat down and shortly after a friendly lady served us. We both ordered a beef roast and 10 minutes later we weren't disappointed.... More

The Priory Restaurant isn't a fancy or pretentious restaurant and that's one of it's charms. It's contained in a simple 17th century building. There's limited outdoor seating, weather permitting, both right on High Street and also in a rear garden. We sat inside since there was a Fall chill in the air even though it was a beautiful sunny day.... More

Not quite sure what to call this place, cafe, diner, restaurant but.....surprisingly it was quite a nice place, breakfast served in good time, was nice and very warm and served by adorable waitresses. At £6.95 most other pubs, restaurants, just eateries in general will serve similar for about £7.95 - £8.95 so good value for money and a nice positive... More
