We popped in on the off chance, really enjoyed the food, and good service. Went back following day because we enjoyed it so much. Hunters Chichecen, Pannini, steak and ale pie all excellent!

Ok, the food in here is far away from spectacular and they don't have a very large variety of ales either but overall this pub/inn is in the high street of one of the most picturesque of the Cotswolds Burford, and it has a lot...More
