Amazing place. Very friendly atentative staff. Quirky room and welcomed our dog. Food was absolutely delicious. Special thanks to the manager who welcomed us and Lubos in the restaurant who could not possibly have been nicer. We will be back

We went into the highway Inn by accident really, but was so glad that we did. The fish & Chips were definitely the best that we have had for such a long time, as were the ploughman’s & the ribs. Our waitress Kaz was fantastic...& really made us welcome. We will definitely be back!More

Got a seat outside as this place was fully booked and turning people away while we were there. We had some picks whilst drinking and can recommend the salt and pepper squid and goats cheese. Nice place.

This is great place for a relaxing break. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Scott and his team are perfect hosts and manage to provide a personal service which is rare these days. The place is immaculately clean and...the food and service are both excellent. We will be returning.More

Last evening meal of our 2021 UK Staycation we eat at The Highway Inn Fantastic position right on High Street Burford In easy walking distance of our hotel just up the road. A busy place which is normally a good sign of thing to come...and we were not disappointed. A friendly welcome upon arrival and we were taken straight to our table despite being 10mins early Good tasty food although we both ordered the sea bass filets only to receive a sea bass filet & not two as implied by its spelling as plural on the menu. Slightly disappointed however the fish was tasty and well cooked a bit of accompanied sauce would have finished it off perfectly. Desert followed of sticky toffee pudding, why not to finish off the holiday.More

I would not recommend this place to anyone. My wife’s mushroom and asparagus vegetarian pie was stone cold inside. After we brought it to the attention of the waitress she took it away. We said that we would like another pie, but it was the...same one, obviously been put through the microwave. Have they not read about reheating mushrooms. Once we complained no one came back to clear our plates, they were just interested in filling all the seats up in the rest of the restaurant. We were fed up of waiting so went to pay at the bar. I refused to pay for my wife’s meal, but they had already discounted it off the bill. The only thing they had done right all night. Eat somewhere else.More

We had an evening meal here and it was fantastic. The best we had on holiday. We I’ll definitely look to go again and try and book one of their rooms to stay in.

We visited the restaurant during our holiday while staying in Burford. We had dinner twice there during the week. The whole experience was fantastic. The food was delicious, the staff super friendly and accommodating. Great place to have a great evening.
