The Royal Oak Burford is as charming and traditional a British pub as you’ll find anywhere in the country. Burford is a historic town not far from Oxford and The Royal Oak is just the kind of pub you’d expect to find in such a place: original oak beams, open fires, nearby walking routes, a garden for the summer months, great ales and even better homemade pub fare. Speaking of which, The Royal Oak Burford is open for lunch as well as dinner and classic British dishes are to be expected as well as a few other, internationally-inspired options. For a real treat try the Cotswold lamb shoulder with capers, garlic mash, thyme jus and seasonal greens, or the homemade vegetarian chilli. The Royal Oak Burford also has a fully gluten-free menu and, of course, a roast is available on Sunday. Head to Witney Street armed with a reservation.
Great food and friendly staff in a charming environment. I had the spiced lamb and apricot pie and my wife had the special, the haddock with poached eggs. I would highly recommend dining here.
Great little pub, and extra points for friendliness towards dogs. Pies were really good and well worth the 20min wait. A good no fuss experience.
