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.

Called here for afternoon tea on a busy Monday at lunchtime. We were seated within two minutes, spotted the classic afternoons tea for two people priced at £29.90. We opted for ginger beer rather than a hot drink and that soon arrived.

After a wait of 10 minutes,The tea arrived on a traditional tier of 3 plates with beautiful sandwiches, an assortment of 4 cakes and two fruit scones with jam and clotted cream.

We soon eat the sandwiches followed by the fruit scones, we asked for a box to take the cakes home, duly arrived and we were off to pay in the ship.

Toilets were upstairs which makes it difficult for me as I'm disabled.

We thought the tea was good value and pleasant.

Well worth a try.

We were warmly greeted and shown a table and presented with menus.
We both had the full English and we were not disappointed, it was excellent and I could not pick any faults at all from start to finish was an excellent experience.
The nice extra touch was with the pot of tea, which came with additional water, which my other half in particular appreciated, as she likes her tea very weak.
The other added bonus with Huffkins is that you get a 10% discount on the takeaway items from the cake shop, I had a sticky spiral lardie cake, which was delicious (I ate that the next day).
Would definitely come here again.

We tried to visit this place for lunch . It was very busy we were greeted by an assistant who seemed rather stressed, we asked if there was disabled access to which she replied yes they could open a side door . There was one small party waiting to to be seated , another person who was waiting in the same queue said he was only waiting to pay. I asked the assistant if she thought there might be a table free if we waited . She replied it wasn't worth waiting .
The food appeared very nice but staff very unhelpful .

Popped in for a Pot of tea and teacake mid morning. Staff very friendly and chatty. Got in just before it got crowded. A lovely selection of snacks and cakes

We suggest you visit the shop and buy to take away... We had to queue to be seated and it all felt a bit rushed unfortunately.
