We came to visit Burford but hotels are over-priced so decided to stay here. It was the best decision we had made. The staff are super friendly and I can say that the delicious breakfast was the best that we had during our entire UK...More

5 of us arrived and took us 10 mins to get seated. We all had the roast pork. The portions were awfully small. And the pork was so dry. The chef was insistent that the pork was fine and no body else had ever complained....More

Arrived at the Ferryman at 10:30pm after booking through LateRooms only to be told all rooms had been taken. There then followed an "argument" between LateRooms and the Landlord who was to blame - meanwhile I had nowhere to stay. LateRooms wouldn't book another room...More
