We had a fantastic meal at the Royal Oak in Burford and would recommend highly to any travellers looking for a quality experience. Also the staff were very welcoming and service nothing short of excellent Roger and family (not easily pleased so well done)

Came recommended locally especially for the pies. Can't fault them, and will worth trying. Just off the main drag but popular which is always a great sign. Would visit again.

Tucked away but this pub is great. Friendly staff, good beer and a chef who knows how to present meals - and on hot plates! Three different mains and three different sweets between five of us, and all excellent. Enjoyable all round! Thank you.
