Another great meal at The Angel, as always top notch Roast Beef and good attentive service, would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

We went on a Monday night, we were the only couple in the main part of the restaurant so it was very quiet indeed. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas and I'm sure that the ambiance would be wonderful if there had been more people there! The food was absolutely delicious and the service very good. We would definitely recommend The Angel.

Ate Sunday lunch and it was very good. Only downside we were a small party of 3 which wanted to chat and unfortunately were dining in the same room as a family christmas party which was rather noisy.

Menu said rare roast beef. It was definitely not rare. Gravy thick and cold. Vegetables stewed. Potatoes obviously cooked sometime before dinner served hard and cool. To charge £16 for this was a rip off. Very disappointed and I will not return.

We went for Sunday lunch; the choice that day was beef or ham. We had the beef, which was tender as well as tasty and a very good sized portion. By way of a change, the accompanying vegetables were roasted, and were very tasty too.
Although quite full after all that, I was tempted by the sticky toffee pudding served wth a caramel sauce and homemade icecream, and glad that I succumbed, as the pudding was delicious and quite light.
The menu looked interesting and we shall return.

Met up with friends. Warm welcome given and food excellent.
We were unfortunately sat near a large table booking who were quite noisy, so at times it was difficult to hear our conversation.
Overall would definitely recommend the pub as a good meeting place and wonderful Sunday lunch

Nice pub in a good location and menu.
However, big issue for me is that it allows dogs to sit by the tables whilst you are eating - fine if clean, not so if smelly or just been for a swim in the river - as bit of a distraction and a potential heath issue.

We had a very good Sunday lunch experience. The roast beef with all the trimmings was generous and beautifully cooked and the ploughman's and cheeseburger chosen by others in our party looked equally good. The service was patient with a slow decision-making group. The pub is cute and cosy with nice decor and good loos. Heartily recommended.

We had a warm welcome at the Angel at Burford from the bar staff and was served promptly with drinks and directed to our table.
The Angel has a great atmosphere with wood burning stove and wooden beams.
We enjoyed a two course meal which was extremely delicious and filling.
The waiting staff made sure we were well catered for and were very friendly.
Fabulous food would definitely recommend and hopefully one day return.

Recommended by a local and it was a delicious late meal. We actually ordered apitizers and made that our meal. It was a nice mix of tastes and flavors. It was also quiet and cozy. A great ending to a perfect day of traveling around The Cotswalds.

We have been to the Angel before and had a great meal. this time it was disappointing. The meal choice was poor with several things from an already limited menu sold out. No mains specials at all! This was at 7.30 on the bank holiday Sunday. Were they really going to be able to restock for bank holiday Monday? The tables for 2 were squashed together with very little privacy between couples. No apologies for the limited choice and no attempt to offer a suitable available. Fresh veg had run out so a salad was offered!
The food we eventually had was ok. Service was ok, but I don't like to have to open my own wine.

We had a lovely meal at the Angel at Burford, the food and service was very good.

My only disappointment was the seating availability, we had booked well in advance and ended up seated near the door and the bar with a number of locals right next to our table. There was another option but it would have been cramped between two other tables.

The food was excellent and we could not fault the service.

Met with friends from different parts of the country for Sunday lunch. We'd all travelled over an hour to meet up.
Was a hot summers day, we have a coffee out in the garden and then found a shady table and ate a delicious Sunday roast.
Service was quick, but unhurried. Atmosphere was relaxed and I came away feeling I had a lovely meal and good day out.
Thank-you so much and we will all be back in the Autumn.

Food was fair. My Sunday lunch was good, but dessert was average. Let themselves down with terrible service. We were there for 2.5 hours. Starters didn't arrive until 1 hour after seating.

Was looking forward to the meal, but was disappointed with the overall experience and won't return.

Very easy to book online. Lovely garden with plenty of shade. Interesting menu. Soup far too spicy for the two who choose it (should have been warned and no compensation for not being able to consume it). Rest of the meals were very nice and the waiting staff helpful.
