I was recommended this restaurant by a colleague, when I visited Burford with my wife for a short break. I reserved a table by email.

We arrived just before our 7pm booking and there was a table reserved for us. First impression was that this was more pub than restaurant, it was by no means rowdy but we were the only ones dining, everyone else seemed to be enjoying a drink and I wondered if this would affect the atmosphere. However, I think it was just the relatively early time we decided to eat; as it got later more people arrived to dine and it was a much better restaurant vibe.

The service was very friendly and helpful, we weren't rushed at all even when we decided to wait half hour between our main course and dessert.

Most importantly, the food was fantastic! My steak was maybe more medium to well done than medium-rare, if I was a foody then I'd have an issue with that but I'm not so I don't. All three of my courses were lovely, my wife reported the same. The portions were generous, I really feel like I had value for money here.

OK to be honest this place looks gorgeous from the outside. We arrived for our two night stay and proceeded to the bar to book in. Was served by some pretentious and rude guy. Basically demanded we payed before we were shown our room. The room we had was right above the kitchen and courtyard. Kitchen staff outside smoking and booming noise from the kitchen. Complained and this stopped. Signs of mould in the bathroom and shower curtain was grubby. The shower curtail rail was just about hanging on. Beds were cheap however mattresses were good. Breakfest was it's saviour it was amazing, sausage, bacon and poached eggs were realky nice. Luckily we didn't pay the full price due to booking it months earlier. Be warned whole village is full of gastrointestinal pubs that serve simple pub food but at a premium price. Village is stunning

Lovely friendly Inn which has dog friendly rooms, just ring and check availability as it's not all rooms. Food is lovely with a great selection and a really good breakfast. This place is really old so don't expect everything to be new and shiny but everything was very good indeed, a lovely stay in a beautiful part of the UK

Can't enthuse too much about this place. Tonight (October 20th 2014) we experienced impeccable quality of restaurant service and food in a beautifully decorated country pub. Very reasonably priced too. I'd strongly recommend this place to anyone.

Had a very enjoyable lunch at the Highway Inn. Relaxed atmosphere, traditional style with an open fire. Good quality, reasonably priced pub food and a nice selection of beers on tap. Will definitely consider calling in again.

Really nice place to stay to explore the Cotswolds. In a great location on the main road of a small town, surrounded by some really nice shops. The hotel itself was very cosy and had everything we needed.

We stayed here last night and found it to be very comfortable. We ate in the restaurant and the dinner and breakfast were both very nice. Very friendly staff. Overall we would recommend The Highway Inn.

Lovely old Inn with visible wooden beams. Small courtyard to the rear where you can eat and/or drink, also some picnic benches out front with parasols for shade. We had a lovely lunch with nice service.

Arrived quite late in the evening, got tremendous service from polite and welcoming staff.
The bar is good, filled up with goods from the local brewery, and the breakfast was as expected.

Very nice and warm place, good food, extermely polite staff, although TV channels are not working well, which I consider a minore defect, the Highway Inn is amazing place to try in burford.

Nice restaurant with pleasant staff. The food was of a very high quality at a reasonable price. The drinks were quite pricey though. Looking forward to visiting here again.

Very friendly hosts, providing value for money accommodation in a real quirky old world hotel. Would definitely recommend and use again.

Lovely 15th century building. Extremely friendly staff and lovely food. Rooms a bit small, but to be expected for building age.

Very good quality food, well cooked and presented. Fair price I thought. Knew what a 'proper' ginger beer shandy was!

it was cold - only a fire - no CH on at lunchtime
My steak pie was very poor - hardly any proper meat.
