We were made very welcome to sit in the sunshine in the courtyard at the rear of the dog friendly hotel and enjoyed very good pub food and Hook Norton ales amongst other things. Good efficient staff served us. we would visit again and recommend it.

Stopped in Burford whilst touring the Cotswolds and were looking for somewhere for lunch. Burford has lots of pubs and restaurants so I consulted my Good Pub Guide app and it suggested the Highway. I'm pleased to say it got it right as I had an excellent Fish & Chips and my wife had a delicious sandwich. This tasty food... More

My family and I dined here as the menu offered was different and interesting. Booking is advisable as this is a small place with a lovely open fire. They have a good range of drinks available and bottles of wine from £20 to £80 + . I had the Oxfordshire Gin and Tonic which was nicely preppared before we chose... More

We say the board outside and booked for the steak night. It did say that the steaks were noisette steaks and so we expected them to be very small - but they were fine (6oz) and were lovely. It was a steak night deal with a bottle of house wine and steak for two and excellent value. we would eat... More

My friends and I visited Burford for a meal, but didn't have anywhere particular in mind. We passed this place and the menu looked good. We were not disappointed. As well as a main menu, which was plentiful, they offered a burger menu. Wagyu Beef is my favourite, so I was pleased to see it on a menu on the... More

We have been here several times and the food is always excellent and good value. If you get the choice sit in the main bar as the small area to the right of the main door lacks atmosphere. When we were there last Saturday evening the large table in this area was used by a large party that were just... More

We happened to park just outside and as it was lunchtime we looked at the menu and without hesitation went in. The welcome was warm and friendly. The small bar was not crowded and the beer went down rather well. The menu choices weren't extensive but varied enough to tempt all sorts. After a suitable wait the meal was brought... More

Ready for an overdue lunch, this was the second hostelry we came upon during our short stay in Burford. We were drawn in by the lunch menu which featured local produce. Lunch was excellent, especially the wonderful desserts and we were looked after extremely well. On future visits this will be our first port of call for meals. Local ales... More

Stayed over for 2 nights, the staff are very friendly and helpful however the room we had was dated and in need of a bit of an upgrade, the shower was pretty poor. Breakfast and evening meal were good with most ingredients locally sourced. Car parking is on the road outside or nearby side streets.
