As a traditonal tea room, this place is excellent. The portions are generous and the service is great. The ambiance ia very traditional, it feels like the 1960s. Well worth viisting one of their shops.

There is street parking but you will have to be very lucky to find a space. We parked in a car park behind a church which was roughly a 3/5 minute walk away from the High Street.

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.
