Decided to try again despite a poor experience last time, about 6 months ago. Had to find our own table as there were no staff around. Most of the tables had not been cleared. Eventually a waiter came and asked us what we wanted. We asked for a menu and without a word he turned and walked away. We waited... More

What has happened here? We are infrequent visitors to Maison Blanc in Burford and have loved going for several years for a cappuccino, fresh pastries and the Sunday papers. This morning was quite a shock! Firstly, the staff were arguing behind the counter when we arrived, not a great welcome. Our coffee orders arrived with dry (and definitely not fresh)... More

The staff were extremely friendly, but there were cobwebs on the paintings and all over the windowsill, which was disconcerting in a food establishment.

I think you know when things are bad when the management or owners don't bother to respond to the truly awful reviews this place gets. Popped in for a coffee. Popped straight back out again. I went to Huffkins instead.

Firstly I should say I had a very nice birthday cake made here last year. I took my friend here who lives in Asia and wanted to have a traditional "cream tea". The place was virtually empty, the choices of cakes were very poor, but it was the awful service that I really objected too. My friends ordered the "cream... More

We always plan to have lunch here during our annual visit to Burford and were so disappointed to be told that hot food wasn't available. Such a shame!

A disappointing visit. Overpriced produce and average drinks. The crockery was grubby and the place needed a good clean. Staff were friendly and helpful though.

I have been a customer since this cafe opened. Originally owned by Raymond Blanc, the food, service and cleanliness were first class. Unfortunately, this cafe was sold on to another absent owner a few years ago along with the Maison Blanc name, since then it has gone down hill relentlessly. A lack of interest in the building, business, cleanliness and... More

I visited for lunch and was expecting much better. This place is a disgrace inside and requires a full makeover. The counters are falling apart, the floors are uneven and filthy - the furnishings...my dogs bed is cleaner! Whoever owns this place needs to take a good look at themselves and realise its potential and stop being greedy taking the... More

I popped in here for a coffee with my daughter. No one greeted us and we just found a table. Eventually someone came over and brought us menus. 10 minutes later they took our order and then it took 30 minutes to get a coffee and a smoothie. The waitresses were uninterested and very snooty. The place is filthy, we... More
