We visited as a treat whilst visiting the Cotswolds. Although the cafe was busy, the very friendly and helpful waitress quickly cleared us a table. The milkshakes and hot chocolate were delicious. The cakes were lovely...an amazing chocolate cake and a salted caramel shortbread. Portion sizes were large and service was good. Definitely worth a visit! An added bonus is... More

I recommend this place for breakfast, lunch, or afternoon tea. There is an extensive menu with many traditional English favourites like rarebits and cream teas, fish and chips, pies etc. The portions are very satisfying and reasonable value. It gets busy but the service is quick and friendly. I didn't have the cream tea but it looked delicious!

We've visited Burford before. It's got a great deal to offer as regards shops and places to eat. It was an extremely busy Easter Saturday morning when we were there and by the time we'd parked the car and walked into the High Street we decided we needed refreshment of some sort and chose Huffkins. The place was crowded but... More

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.
