"Great"

Booked in for one night whilst working locally. Staff very welcoming, bed was enormous and comfy. The full English breakfast superb. All in all a very pleasant stay.

Stopped by on our first night in the Cotswolds for a quick dinner and found small, attractive pub serving 4 star food. Everything served was excellent. Split the aubergine parmagan with my wife and hardly got a bit. It's was excellent with a complex tomato sauce, and I am not a big eggplant fan. Others ate lighter with roasted tomato... More

We walked to Shilton from the excellent Caravan Club site near the Cotswold Wildlife Park. They accommodated us without a reservation on a busy Friday evening. The village and pub are very quaint and the staff welcoming. My sirloin steak was excellent and cooked to perfection and my wife's fish pie was very tasty.

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
