Thank you for your kind review, however I think you may have the wrong establishment! We do not have any letting rooms nor do we serve breakfast. Thanks anyway! Jamie More

This lovely old village pub and eatery is located in the village of Shilton some two miles south of Burford - nowhere near where TripAdvisor's map which shows it on the Burford boundary. We found out the hard way when we tried to stroll round the corner from our lodgings for dinner! Returning for the car and satnav soon solved... More

Brilliant food, lovely warm welcome. Great staff in a lovely village setting. Open fires, lots of ales - the guinness was excellent according to my discerning husband

Found this pub whilst staying in the Cotswolds and searching for somewhere to eat in the evening. Very glad we did. The pub is charming, old world, traditional pub in a delightful village selling proper beer (the pub is in the good beer guide). The food was reasonably priced, good portions and excellent. My husband had the liver and bacon... More

We visited the Rose & Crown after a 5 year absence. It's still as welcoming and friendly as it ever was. It's a mix of locals having a beer, regulars for meals and passing trade, possibly on recommendations as you're unlikely to accidentally drive past this pub. Food menu hasn't changed in the 5 years so if you go often... More

A restaurant that promises a lot and delivers very little. We turned up for lunch and were pleased to see that the chef was from The Ivy but we were so disappointed. I ordered the minute steak and it was so awful that I took one mouthful and put the rest in my handbag. I ate the 'oven' chips but... More

We booked a table for lunch as we wanted somewhere not too far from Burford where we could park easily and which had enough menu choices to cater for a non- meat eater. Turned out an excellent choice. Friendly welcome on arrival by I assume the owner, drinks offered straight away and then shown to our table in the quite... More

We were in the area for a weekend, we came across a sign for the Rose and Crown, we walked 1.5 miles to taste the local ale, and what a pleasant place this is, the girl behind the bar was friendly polite greeted us when we walked in.. She was also taking bookings for the restaurant as well as serving... More
