I arranged to meet an old friend for lunch yesterday, and on the basis of previous reviews we decided to try out the Royal Oak. I'm happy to report that we weren't disappointed. We received a warm welcome from the staff member behind the bar, and everyone we dealt with had the same friendly manner, but they were all very... More

My wife and I had lunch here and we could not have been made more welcome by the staff which always gives you a good feel about the place. The food was excellent and he service was great, I would certainly recommend this place to anyone.

Wow had a great meal here staff were friendly and welcoming with quick service. We could bring our dog into the bar. They do for £12:95 an excellent home made vegetable pie with vegetarian gravy which you can have with veg and either mash or chips. Definitely recommend it.

A lovely hotel, the room was large and clean. The only boggle would be that the bathroom is badly in need of a refurb, though it was very clean. We ate in the bar and the food was delicious and plentiful. Excellent service by the staff too. Would definitely, and have, recommend staying/ dining here to others

Had lunch here today. Booked a table, phone ahead as running 30 minutes late and it was no trouble pushing back the reservation. Service was friendly and quick and just the right amount of attention. Food was lovely and portions generous. The Hot Chocolate Fudge Cake was delicious and very light. Just as well as I forced myself to eat... More

Definitely worth seeking out, it's only a couple of minutes from Burford main High Street with a decent choice from their menu, we had been recommended to try the pies that are homemade and very tasty accompanied by fresh vegetables and decent gravy. Good choice of drinks also and friendly staff.

Great pub for delicious home cooked food. The service is friendly and efficient. Dogs welcome. Veggie chilli was the best I've tasted.
