Had the great misfortune of entering this charmless place on New Year's Day They were advertising coffee and teas and so 4 adults and 4 children sat down. Oh dear, no welcome, certainly no New year greetings from 3 charmless staff who clearly wished we were not there, especially the children.

To be honest we should have left.

3 tepid hot chocolates, 2 insipid cappuccino and 2 black coffee supplemented by the smallest glass of lemonade I have ever seen served, came to an astronomical £23...but on this New Year's day no welcome and no smiles.

The Bull may be number 1 in Burford on trip advisor, but frankly I cannot see why.

I get around and remain astounded by the lack of welcome you find in most placesin the UK. This is another example of the desperate state of English hospitality. AVOID!!

Everything here is homemade - even the cheese crackers. Breakfast is superb and lots of it! Scallops were succulent, vegetables imaginitively presented. Icecream yummy. Wines sensibly priced too. Very good value.

Duck was pink and delicious veg and sauce cooked to perfection. Service was first class and the choice of wines was varied and something for every budget. My Sauvignon Blanc was a Marlborough under £30 crisp light and beautiful flavour. Could not fault anything so thankyou for a wonderful dining experience

Great food on a short but varied menu. They went out of their way to meet my fussy husband's steak requests! The orange ice cream is to die for!
