“We just had lunch”
Reviewed 7 February 2009

We only had lunch there while spending some days in the area.
Food was quite good but I agree with the reviewer who says the owner is not a 'warm welcomer' at all

Reviewed 15 April 2007

Was booked in by a friend for her wedding. The pub is absolutely charming and I found the staff and owner extremely friendly and very accommodating to our needs. Having read the review on your site we were apprehensive but found dcompletely the opposite to them. I assume he was the one who wrote a terrible review in their visitors book, which is still on display. It looks as though they have been doing accommodaiton for a long time and have had some admirable reviews - there was only the one derogatory one - if it was him he would not like to comment the next visitor had written. Take as you find and we found the whole experience to be most satisfying.

Royal Oak, Burford. Did not book in but attracted by very welcoming fire - pity owner not as welcoming as his fire! Made to feel like we were putting him to an inconvenience - as welcoming as a hole in a dry -suit! The breakfast made up for his lack of social skills but not impressed with having to look into the kitchen whilst having breakfast. If you'r allergic to 'plug'-ins' one to avoid as room was over-powering with 'plug-in smell' 7/10 for breakfast but 2/10 for personality and charm.
