Stumbled across this cute cafe on a Saturday afternoon. I'm gluten intolerant so it can be tricky to walk into a restaurant or cafe and have options on the menu. But this place caters very well! Gluten free bread is available on request but not displayed on the menu. There are also gluten free cakes and scones. We ordered the... More

Popped in for lunch - quite busy (but we were seated fairly quickly) but a good experience, lovely soup with roll, and bonus of a table by the window. Have been before and always enjoy our meals here.

We visited on a very cold December day and were welcomed and assisted in a lovely friendly and helpful manner. Great selection of teas good hot chocolate and superb home made mince pies. Just what the doctor ordered! As we looked out of the pretty Christmas lights of Stow

The member of staff we encountered when we arrived was so rude that we left without ordering. Suggest this place trains its staff in basic courtesy.

Home made bakery items and gifts sold in shop alongside the same cafe. Staff very friendly and helpful although very expensive it is very well worth it for the experience. Made to feel very welcome. Everything is very freshly cooked.

Great location overlooking the main square. Plenty of tasty lunch options. The tomato and stilton soup was especially good. Take care though if anyone in your party has mobility difficulties as the toilets are quite a hike upstairs and right the way through to the back.

Description
Huffkins is a bit unusual. We are an independent family business with our own craft bakery and a heritage that stretches back to 1890. Established in Burford, at the heart of the Cotswolds, by Mr Titcombe our breads and cakes were originally delivered by donkey and cart. Given the impracticalities of donkeys we have modernised some things over the years - but we still bake everything by hand. Our bakers work through the night to create everything from the bread for our sandwiches to the fresh cream cakes in our shops. We believe very firmly in sourcing ingredients locally wherever possible. Now whilst there is clearly not an abundance of tuna fish in the local rivers there are surprisingly few things that do not grow in the Cotswolds. And when we do grow something it tends to be good. Very good in fact. Our chefs take a keen interest in every ingredient that enters our kitchens from field to plate. So when, for instance, you ask for a sausage bap at Huffkins you can expect Cotswold pork sausages made by WJ Castles of Burford to our own traditional recipe in a handmade bap from our bakery made with FWP Matthew's flour from Shipton under Wychwood, served with Huffkins spicy tomato ketchup made at our own kitchen in Stow-on-the-Wold. We believe in real Cotswold food. Even our teas, which we buy directly from the finest small producers around the world are blended with local ingredients including Cotswold fruits and lavender from Snowshill near Broadway. The only thing we cannot get to grow locally is good staff - so regrettably you are stuck with whatever we could find. Many have been with us an awfully long time. Too long perhaps. Yet all jokes apart many of the team hold awards for 3, 5, 10 and even 15 years of service. Just look out for coloured lapel pins if you fancy spotting the old-timers.
