I nearly only gave 3 stars but felt that was a little unfair. Food here is excellent, the new gin list a revelation and the wine list is good. The real problem with The Highway is that if you are in there after 10pm you...More

We had a soup and ploughmans lunch. Excellent. Great atmosphere. Note that in Burford, there's a car park and parking on the street but the rules differ for each side of the street.

A family group of 5 across three generations came to visit Burford and popped into the inn for a quick coffee break. We went right through to the small but sun-baked courtyard that's surrounded by the lovely Cotswold stone walls and climbing plants. Had coffee...More

Called in for a quick lunch and met with a warm welcome with traditional English pub surroundings. Ordered BLT and fish finger sandwiches which were both fresh & tasty and good value.

Took pot luck and were fortunate - decent menu choices, very good food indeed. Service excellent, tempting desserts and good wine list. All in all a gem, as long as you can find a convenient parking space.More

We went here for dinner and had a pretty good meal. The menu isn't very extensive, so I would not recommend for picky eaters. There are a few vegetarian options. The food we got was good, and it came fairly quickly. The atmosphere of the...More
