We stayed at the Shaven Crown at Shipton under Wychwood for 3 nights to celebrate my husbands birthday. The hotel has recently been renovated to a high standard. It was warm comfortable and very welcoming and the breakfasts were superb. We would definitely stay there again.

Enjoyed a wonderful two night stay in January. The hotel is beautiful - very tastefully renovated. Some lovely homely touches. I stayed in The Ascot room which was extremely comfortable. Best of all my dog was given an equal welcome and allowed to stay with me. I ate in the restaurant on both nights and absolutely loved the food. Perfectly... More

Stayed at the Shaven Crown for two nights with my wife in early December 2014. We booked it via the hotel's website, which worked perfectly well and we were expected and welcomed on arrival. Rather surprised to find it very quiet - and can't really work that out as the place is just lovely. Our room was large, well heated,... More

We have recently moved to the area and went to the Shaven Crown for Sunday lunch with some friends. We have a toddler and his table manners are still being perfected! The staff couldn't have been friendlier and very relaxed about the mess our little one left on the floor having dropped most of his food. The roast beef was... More

Friends took us here for lunch, we were all not impressed. Now that the pub has changed hands it has lost its character and atmosphere. Food was not great, we tried the cottage pie. It was rather wet and had not been browned off under the grill, so did not look too good and didn't taste a lot better. Pudding... More

Stayed here for one evening in December. Two of us plus our 2 dogs. It was lovely. The dogs couldn't have been made more welcome. The decor and ambience were just gorgeous. We had the best roast beef lunch ever eaten in a pub- scrummy and much recommended. We stayed in the Pump Room- a tastefully decorated room with a... More

Just went for dinner - warm welcome, great service and very tasty food. Only criticism is that the portion was rather meagre. We ate slowly but it was all gone in about four minutes! We left still feeling hungry.

Took two friends to this recently refurbished hotel's restaurant The restaurant is very tastefully furnished and although modern is in keeping with the age of the hotel. But the food is not ancient! The service was good although as we did not want a first course the wait for the main was a little lengthy, but we were warned! The... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel in November and we had a very pleasant time. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel itself is very old and historical which was of great interest to myself. Our room was immaculate but it took a while to get hot water to the bathroom after we asked due to... More

We stayed in the Pump Room for 3 nights over the 1st weekend in November and did not want to leave. A beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable and spacious room with original stained glass windows and wooden ceiling beams. Breakfast (included) was also excellent and although not cheap, we felt the room was worth every penny and great value compared... More
