Enjoy a Valentines Day break at the Bull at Burford

Valentine’s Day at the Bull at Burford

One month out from Valentine’s Day 2019 the Bull at Burford has launched an incredible, discounted Cotswold romance offer!

The budget can bite a bit at this time of year, so we have cooked up a VERY special 25% discount, even out-doing our other Cotswold midweek mini breaks.

This year’s Valentines 2019 break offers two nights’ Dinner, Bed & Breakfast from just £136.50 per person, including a glass of prosecco with dinner on the big night and delicious fudge or chocolates on arrival.

The dining offer gives both guests £35 on both nights from our delicious a-la-carte menu.

Make it a 3-night stay

And, as Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday this year, we are also offering a special rate on the Saturday night for those who want to make it a long 3-night weekend in Burford, the Gateway to the Cotswolds.

This offer is only available by booking direct through our website and allows you to choose between every type of double room we have available: superior, 4-poster, standard and small double rooms – truly something to suit every budget.

Take me to your offers now!

Midweek mini-breaks in the Cotswolds

By Jean-Marie Lauzier

The weather doesn’t quite know what it’s doing but I love this time of year. For those with young children it is a case of getting back into the school routine, but for those like me (whose kids are grown up) there’s often time and freedom to go and explore a bit, and Burford in the Cotswolds is the perfect place for this.

With this in mind, we’ve come up with three special offers for people who want to make a break for it during the week to relax and stay in a lovely room from Sunday to Friday, and get back home in time for the weekend, maybe to take care of the grandchildren! Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure these will appeal to a far broader audience than just grandparents, but I’m looking at them from my perspective!

2-night Burford mini-break

This is a refreshing two night midweek stay with breakfast and a 3-course a-la-carte dinner both nights, and a bottle of champagne on arrival, all from just £169 per person! Book here >>

3-Night Cotswold Escape

For those wanting something a little longer, this offers an incredible 3-night midweek stay, with the usual breakfast and a 3 course a-la-carte dinner (value £35 pp) on two of the three nights, knowing that sometimes people like to venture out somewhere else too on one night. There’s also a bottle of champagne on arrival and all this from just 199 per person sharing, with a superior upgrade available for a little more.  Book here >>

The perfect dog-walker’s Sunday

Lots of people ask if we accept dogs and the answer is yes, as long as they’re friendly and well-behaved! This Sunday Special package offers Dinner, Bed & Breakfast for just £74.50 per person sharing, and dogs go free (usually a small charge applies).  Book here >>

Royal Air Tattoo 2019!

If you’re an Air Tattoo enthusiast you’ll already be planning for July 2019. With the event held in nearby Fairford, we have a 3-night minimum stay package including dinner, bed & breakfast on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights of the Air Tattoo. Ring the hotel if you want to book a Friday-Saturday-Sunday stay.

The perfect spring starter

I love Burford in the springtime. The trees, shrubs and hanging baskets that line a large part of the high street come into full bloom and the hustle bustle returns to the town.

Outside the hotel our tables and chairs become very popular with people wanting to stop by for a morning coffee, lunch or a drink from the bar and the whole place just starts to feel alive again.

In the kitchen it also typically brings a new emphasis and our head chef Pablo will be bringing out a new menu in the next week or so for lunch and dinner in our restaurant and bar.

One of our more popular starters at this time of year – in fact it’s popular all year round – is the fish platter, pictured above. It’s a lovely combination of flavours: four peeled king prawns cooked in sweet chilli sauce, gravlax, smoked salmon, herring rollmops, red apple, crayfish in marie-rose sauce and tartare sauce.

The two sauces make all the difference so here’s a tip from the kitchen: For the Marie-Rose you need ketchup, mayonnaise, orange juice, brandy, tabasco and Worcester sauce. And for the tartare, Pablo uses mini capers, smoked salmon, cornichons, gherkins, red onion, mayonnaise and a dash of English mustard. The taste combinations are wonderful and it makes for the perfect spring starter.

Keep you eyes peeled for our new menus and also our latest offers for weekend and midweek stays, with dinners included. Our guests have been raving about them all winter!
