A nice little restaurant serving a mix of traditional and modern pub fare in a lovely building. Quite expensive for the small portion sizes, but only slightly more than other menus in Burford. Friendly if slightly slow service.

We love The Angel for its food, ambience, fabulous staff and warm welcome. Whether sitting in the garden in the summer or inside the cosy pub in winter, the warm welcome and fabulous food are the same - we think it is THE place to go in Burford.

Food not as good as we have had before but still good.
Great place and we like it but unfortunately not at all kid friendly despite having a kids menu.
We have a 3 yr old with autistic/ ADHD signs. After being very good for almost 2 hours he wanted to look around the place. We had already decided to leave but was asked to ensure he stayed by our table. While we wait for the bill and put coats on.
Not quite sure what was expected of us as he wasn’t loud or disturbing. Perhaps the owner expected us to smack or shout at our child ? But this does not work.
If our son had more physical or obvious disabilities would this had been said?
Did taint our visit and hope that other parents are aware that this is not really a family place but more of a adult venue.
Shame.

A lovely pub restaurant overall but there is very limited space to have a drink and catch-up before sitting to table. The front door opens into the eating area so very drafty with people coming and going. There was one open fire lit but, even though we arrived at 12.15 on a Thursday, it felt cold in there. Not very ‘Christmassy ‘ at all even though close to Christmas Day.
Service was good but I was disappointed with my meal - having said that my three dining companions all felt their meal was very good.
I chose scallops and bacon as a starter - scallops too small for the price ( £11 for 3) and the bits of bacon so crisp I had to use fingers to eat it, but tasty enough.
My main course was the olive and tomato risotto - olives tasted and looked like standard ‘cheap’ bottled green olives and too many for my taste. The rice - far too soft and more like a pudding !
No desert so no comment although the choice looked excellent.

Hidden away in side road from the main Burford High Street, the Angel is warm, cosy and intimate. The food was excellent and the service was very good. Only very slight negative is that our table was positioned in close proximity to our neighbours and the fireplace & my partner felt slightly uncomfortable at times as if he was in the way of the staff passing by.

Pre- booked on a busy Saturday lunchtime. Weather was awful so Dining area was full. Even so
Service was good and attentive but not over attentive. Food was excellent as usual and menu had just the right amount of variety without being pretentious. Overall a good lunch dining experience. Would recommend booking in advance as we did particularly at the weekend it's very easy on line.

Tucked away down a side street off Burford High Street is this lovely little pub, set-up mainly for dining, with small bar area. Most of our food was excellent, scallop starter delicious, as was the liver and steak was good too. Fish and chips not so great, fish over cooked and chips not great. Desserts fab!

All in all definitely worth a visit; friendly staff and traditional pub feel.

Met up with three friends. The pub is the ideal location for us as we all travel about 1hr 30mins.
It has a nice atmosphere & is friendly.
We're always made to feel very welcome, the food is always nicely presented, beautifully cooked and extremely tasty. Afterwards we go for a walk before departing for our respective journeys home.

Food on the plate was good, however severely let down by Sunday service. We had to ask three times just for a jug of water, our food was not hot so by the time you were near the end of the plate it was cold. a couple asked for carrots, we thought this was a good idea as we only had cabbage with our roast, then realised we were supposed to have a bowl of root vegetables which never appeared and this was not acknowledged by staff. Would not recommend.

I have been before and food was lovely
But sadly this time lamb was tough and the knife blunt so hard to cut. I did tell 2 members of staff it was tough but no response. Would still try again though.
