We were on our way back from Cheltenham and decided to stop in Burford. This is the second time we came here and it was very nice. I had a lovely salad with Stilton and figs and a fish pate. My husband had a burger with Stilton and chips. Two beers. The fire was on and it felt very cosy,... More

We were staying in the Cotswolds and took a day trip to Burford. We decided to go to the Cotswolds Arms having already looked for dog friendly eating places prior to leaving home. What a great choice. The staff were very welcoming and found a table for us and offered a bowl of water for the dogs. The wine choice... More

Sunday lunch. We both chose the roast lamb, which was accompanied with Yorkshire pudding, French green beans, Broccoli, buttered carrots and roast potatoes. The lamb just melted in your mouth. Followed by Baileys bread and butter pudding with custard and a chocolate sundae. We noticed dogs are allowed, two very sweet and well behaved Shih Tzu's sat under the next... More

We stayed in burford at the golden pheasant but during a wander up the main Street we browsed other places for their menus. This one came out best for menu choices and price so we went there. Husband had honey glazed duck and I had the red pepper risotto with parmesan crisps. Tasty well prepared food so we didn't mind... More

Now I know, as I'm sure most people do, when chicken is cooked. These chicken thighs were not! Called the young lady over and showed her the pink flesh. Her response: "chicken thighs are like that when cooked"! However she took them away, no apology, and returned with uncooked chicken! I mentioned when I paid and again she repeated" that's... More

Stopped for lunch at start of our holiday, got busier the longer we were there. Just had main meals and drinks. Service was good and food was lovely too. Have been several times before over the years and has always been a reliable stop.

Having made it our task to sample all of the pubs in Burford this was our favourite. A small bar with a lovely open fire and a restaurant area to the rear. We didn't eat but the food smelt and looked great. The pub has a real local feel and a change from those more generic tourist pubs. Well worth... More

We just popped in for a drink while in Burford. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely return for a meal next time.

Went here for some supper. Most things served with chips, vegetarian options limited to say the least. What was served was microwaved rice topped with rubbery mushrooms. DISGUSTING. Went to the local curry house after, (Spice Lounge), had a cracking meal, freshly cooked.

Thank Bonno1971
