From the moment we called we knew this was a place to stay. When we arrived Tess looked after us all day, even gave me a book to read! I sat in the snug buy the fire on lovely soft leather oversized chairs. The room was beautiful. We stayed in the Teme suite which was very deluxe. The bed was comfortable and the duvet had a good heavy weight that just tucked in around you itself. The roll top bath was luxury while looking up at the star studded ceiling. Nice touches such as real coffee hand percolated, cotton balls in the bathroom, still and sparkling water. Dim bulbs in the side board which helped with not getting retina burn! Hahah Love to stay again.

Sorry to say that the Salwey Arms I remember has been replaced by a rather soulless experience. The food was ok if pretty darned expensive for what it is. The beer was excellent for sure but such a place needs a heart. This it lacks. Sadly

We have had two meals here since they reopened, the food was of a great standard, the chocolate brownie pudding is the best I have ever tasted. Everything is very spaced out so you don't have to worry about social distancing, we will return!

We didn’t actually stay there as we live fairly nearby .... But recently took our 3 grandchildren there for Sunday lunch 🍴.... The Salwey arms is a beautiful building and is decorated to a very high standard ....but we were very disappointed with the actual meal , it was fairly cold when it arrived,, and very little of it !! We had 1 small dish of vegetables to share between 5 people ! Also the beef was so tough I couldn’t chew it .....not good ! Our grandchildren are good eaters and love there vegetables... for the price we paid we were totally disappointed 😔, and sorry to say we wouldn’t go back for Sunday lunch .....

My Husband and I came here on the off chance, a Wednesday or Thursday evening recently whilst driving back home to Burford from Ludlow. It was fairly early for dinner 5.30pm ish so it was quiet, but in a nice way. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly member of staff who took us to a table to be seated; we walked right through the bar and into a cosy little "snug" type area - it was perfect! I suffer badly with anxiety along with a chronic illness; so it was nice to be tucked away and for it to be quiet and relaxing for me and my Husband to enjoy a drink whilst we waited for our food. Both members of staff who served us we very attentive, accommodating and friendly at all times. The restaurant/pub itself is beautifully designed (we haven't eaten here for several years!) - everything from the layout, to the decor and little touches on the table. The food - amazing!!! We had a camembert sharing board to start which was stunning! And our mains we couldn't fault either. I chose the roast beef from the specials board; the beef tasted incredible and literally melted in my mouth! The gravy and the vegetables accompanying it were lovely too - especially the cheesy leeks! My Husband had the pork belly & was very impressed (I also tasted a bit too and wow!!!) Overall we absolutely enjoyed our random week night visit here and loved our meals. The only fault I can say is that as we started our mains, one of the staff seated a party of 3 men literally just behind us (there was plenty of room elsewhere) and they had obviously just finished work, were quite loud and noisy (this caused my anxiety to flare a little and made me feel uncomfortable) and I felt the atmosphere of a nice meal for 2 changed. But up until that point it was perfect. We will definitely be back!
