The Mermaid

Welcome to The Mermaid

Situated in the centre of the picturesque town of Burford, The Mermaid restaurant and pub is the perfect place to stop for a meal or a drink. Whether you're staying in the heart of the Cotswolds, or just passing through you can always be assured of a warm welcome.
We're proud to offer a varied menu with genuine home made food to suit all preferences and dietary requirements particularly gluten free options Our charming and charismatic bar maintains the original
The Mermaid at Burford
15th century architecture complete with traditional stone features and fireplaces and old wooden beams and fittings.

Intimate Restaurant

For intimate dining, you'll love our candlelit upstairs restaurant overlooking Burford high street whilst there is also a conservatory area perfect for large families which open up on to a large two tier patio area perfect for alfresco dining
Our bar has a range of excellent lagers and real ales (for which we are proud to boast to be the only pub on Burford's high street to be awarded a Cask Marque accreditation for the excellent condition in which they are kept) three real ales are always available, along with a changing guest ale to ensure a  variety for our customers.
In February 2015, we had a complete bar and upstairs restaurant refurbishment - doing away with the old bar completely which has completely transformed The Mermaid After reopening we got back to what we do best serving the best home made food in Burford accompanied by excellent ales and world wines.


Gluten Free Menu

We were the first establishment in Burford to recognise the growing need for gluten free options and have over the years from experience developed an extensive choice which now even includes gluten free traditional fish & chips.

We're open for late breakfasts
