Reviews - The Highway Inn

4AA Assessed Inn Ratings explained
117 High Street , Burford, OX18 4RG
The Highway Inn dating 1480 is full of great Character with modern subtle touches. We are a leading family owned and run cosy Inn, right in the heart of Burford, in-between Oxford and Cheltenham. Rivers, fantastic walking, wildlife and great independent boutiques and shops are all close-by.

We are very proud to have been awarded 4 star Inn status by both the AA and Visit Britain. We are also proud of our Seasonal menus, with a focus on locally sourced ingredients and homemade food wherever possible.

As one of the few Free houses left in the area we pride ourselves on the largest range of local beers which goes hand in hand with our local producers and suppliers for our food, along with an extensive wine list 15 wines by the glass. Recently, we have added a new cosy Cellar Bar and Function room, which is open at weekends and for organised events, we also have a restored medieval courtyard at the rear for those warmer nights.

Lovely hotel with plenty of character!
We recently stayed in this hotel for one night on a work trip and it was lovely - full of character with each room being very individually decorated...and complimentary sherry! Both dinner and breakfast at the hotel were excellent, the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating (allowing us to eat breakfast 15 minutes earlier than the usual start time). Very good value for money. I would definitely stay here again and am already thinking of returning on a personal trip.

Double booked!
I arrived at the Highway Inn only to be told that they were double booked! This was despite making the booking several weeks earlier. I was sent around the corner to 'The Angel' where I was greeted warmly and shown to a very pleasant double room. The breakfast at 'The Angel' was smashing. I can recommend this public house to anyone who likes to stay in a small, quiet, cosy establishment with bags of character.

Lovely character and warm atmosphere
I stayed here for one night for business and found its central location in Burford very handy. Parking can be difficult as there is no dedicated car park, but I managed to get a space outside the hotel later in the day. The hotel itself is a characteristic old inn, complete with creaky floorboards, low ceilings and narrow staircases, with interesting little features and decorations scattered about the place. My room was overlooking the main street, so the odd lorry whooshing past is inevitable, but I slept very well. Some of the cabinets and drawers in my room were missing a handle here and there, but as I wasn't using them, it was no great problem. Overall I loved this place and would stay here again, especially for the locally sourced eggs and fresh orange juice I had at breakfast. One of the nicest breakfasts I've had in a long while!
