Nipped into this quaint pub for an afternoon drink. A good selection of beers and a lovely atmosphere. Staff very friendly. Well worth a visit.

We stopped here for an early lunch on our way to Kingston-upon-Thames. After ordering we waited for the food. one plate came after 40 minutes and we could allow the kiddies to eat as they were quite hungry. After about another 40 minutes we decided that we were not going to receive our full order and enquired for a second... More

Went with family and were impressed with the selection on the menu, catering for all tastes. We had a range of food and all of it was quality, particularly the duo of chicken. We did arrive 25 mins early for a drink but there was hardly any seating in the main bar so I would advise going to one of... More

For an early Tuesday evening in Burford, this was the liveliest place on High Street thus an easy decision as to where to eat first of three nights. Both the beef & ale pie and vegetarian lasagne were good. If you go, for a fun story ask about the priest's hole (behind easel sign).

We stopped in for a glass of cider and to enjoy the local culture. A small local pub with a very colorful clientele we enjoyed ourselves very much.

We hosted a surprise anniversary afternoon high tea at the Cotswold Arms and soon found out how accommodating and team oriented they are. The planning of the event was seamless and any request was met with enthusiasm. We wanted to bring some of our own decorations and were given personal attention as to where best to arrange them and personal... More

We were on our way back from Cheltenham and decided to stop in Burford. This is the second time we came here and it was very nice. I had a lovely salad with Stilton and figs and a fish pate. My husband had a burger with Stilton and chips. Two beers. The fire was on and it felt very cosy,... More

We were staying in the Cotswolds and took a day trip to Burford. We decided to go to the Cotswolds Arms having already looked for dog friendly eating places prior to leaving home. What a great choice. The staff were very welcoming and found a table for us and offered a bowl of water for the dogs. The wine choice... More

Sunday lunch. We both chose the roast lamb, which was accompanied with Yorkshire pudding, French green beans, Broccoli, buttered carrots and roast potatoes. The lamb just melted in your mouth. Followed by Baileys bread and butter pudding with custard and a chocolate sundae. We noticed dogs are allowed, two very sweet and well behaved Shih Tzu's sat under the next... More

We stayed in burford at the golden pheasant but during a wander up the main Street we browsed other places for their menus. This one came out best for menu choices and price so we went there. Husband had honey glazed duck and I had the red pepper risotto with parmesan crisps. Tasty well prepared food so we didn't mind... More
