Stopped here for Lunch on our Journey with a group of work colleagues. We had a great time, Service was prompt, food was good and the setting of this old pub had charm and character

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.

My husband and I popped in for a quick lunch while visiting Burford. I had Panini and Chips and my husband went for the Steak pie and chips. Really well cooked food and was really yummy, would have liked to have the chance to go back for dinner and a glass of wine so we will do that next time... More

What a find, both dogs and children friendly. There is a bar area with a glowing hot fire or restaurant to choose from. Everyone received a warm welcome and friendly service. The lunch menu was good offering lighter to larger meals and a special Tuesday Burger club. Really enjoyed the food and would highly recommend a visit if you are... More

We have come to this place several times in the last few years and the food is always quite delicious even though this time we just had two simple toasted Panini. One of which was chicken and cheddar that was pleasant enough while my wife raved about the Chicken, Bacon and Brie one which I tasted and I had to... More

This is a nice traditional pub with attentive and helpful staff. Drinks all good. Excellent starter to lunch but the main course, roast lamb was disappointing. Very much 'school dinners'. Solid roast potatoes, tired veg and lamb. Perhaps, just a bad day and worth another shot with the fish and chips.

Popped in for a bite to eat on a Sunday lunchtime. Full menu plus two roasts available. Went for the fish and chips - a massive piece of cod with (as stated) a light batter. Well cooked, great chips. Had to leave some, as too much to finish off. A friend had the scrumpy (8.5% alcohol). Said he loved it.... More
