Popped in for a bite to eat on a Sunday lunchtime. Full menu plus two roasts available. Went for the fish and chips - a massive piece of cod with (as stated) a light batter. Well cooked, great chips. Had to leave some, as too much to finish off. A friend had the scrumpy (8.5% alcohol). Said he loved it.... More

We visited the pub for lunch on Friday around 1.30pm. From the outside it looked quite welcoming and as most pubs in Burford it is dog friendly. The staff were quite attentive although there were only about 8 of us in the bar. The couple next door to us had ordered burgers which came up looking a bit burnt so... More

I was on a tour and Burford was our first stop--I had just been there the day before, a little unexpected side trip and so since I'd missed breakfast thought I'd try a stop here. The pub is on Burford's High Street and has street side as well as other outside dining and even a private room for events. It... More

Popped in for breakfast and was greeted warmly by staff in a quaint and qiiet puv. Realised that the breakfast was overpriced (£7 for a fish finger sandwich you could make at home) but stayed expecting something fancy. It really wasn't... The menu said it came with tartare sauce but it didn't. When we asked whether we could have some,... More

Had dinner here and the staff were very friendly, accommodating and professional. It was very busy which is a good sign. The meal was nice. I had a good chicken burger but wasn't taken by the skinny fries as my preference is a chunky chip. Would definitely pop in again.

Although the food took a while to arrive when it finally did myself and those with me cleared the plates. It was such a lovely meal and a warm pub that I would.definitely come again. It also seems family friendly. Enjoyed our time here. The food prices are also reasonable compared to some I've been to in the area.

My wife's fish platter was great and amazing value for money. The portion size was huge. My pie was full of meat and very tasty served with proper chunky chips and peas. The staff even brought a bowl of water for the dog who really appreciated it.

This traditional old pub in Burford has a hidden secret, it beautiful garden tucked away behind with entry only through the pub.

Working our way home from holiday had spent afternoon in Burford. Had intended being back in Lechlade for dinner but badly delayed and now hungry. Walked out to main street where met by very tempting aroma from The Cotswold Arms. No need for a second invitation. Made very welcome. Good service, friendly staff. Superb steak(one of the specials), lovely desserts.... More
