We were a party of 7 out for a Sunday Roast and were welcomed by a very friendly landlord. We ordered our pre meal drinks and were directed to the restaurant area. The restaurant staff were very pleasant, smiling and courteous. We ordered our food and we all enjoyed it immensely. We will certainly be visiting this establishment again.

We decided to have lunch here after reading the reviews. We called in on spec and were able to get a table for two, and the menus arrived very quickly, as did our drinks order. The menu is limited, so do not expect pages and pages of options. This place keeps it simple and does it very well. We had... More

Spur of the moment choice on a Sunday - usual places full and busy. Very accommodating- squeezed us and the dog in. Straightforward Sunday roast: good service and value for money. Excellent vegetables and trimmings.

We stopped here for lunch on the way to Evesham. Just out of the busy Burford town area so not a problem to park, although the car park was being refurbished so it did make the pub look closed for business. Francesca and Danny were both very friendly and helpful. Importantly the food was nicely cooked, very tasty and efficiently... More

We stopped on the way back from the Wildlife park for a late lunch and to give the dog a lie down. It has a great garden and very friendly staff, to both people and dogs. I had a delicious Ploughmans with a variety of cheeses, ham and salad, and hubby had scampi. Both were reasonably priced and well prepared.... More
