Having tramped across the fields (rained on) and arrived just before evening meal service (7pm) with 2 wet muddy dogs and walking boots full of field we were welcomed anyway into the bar. The pie was tasty (although I like pastry all round rather than just on top - think that's a northern thing :) and the duck was very... More

Arrived with my partner with the idea of a drink and food in mind, only to discover what must be the most ignorant landlord on the planet! Unhelpful and unfriendly doesn't even cover it. Although the staff were almost perfect, they themselves seemed embarrassed by his attitude, which, with hindsight may have been a blessing after seeing the condition of... More

Whether we've booked for a celebration meal or are having an impromptu treat, the quality of service and delicious, fresh food here can be relied upon. The staff are all most welcoming and the selection of local real ales and fine wines mean it is also a lovely pub to simply pop into for a drink.

My wife and I booked a Sunday lunch with our daughter and son-in-law during a visit to the Cotswolds and after reading about the Rose and Crown in the Sunday Telegraph. Set in a lovely village, we were immediately impressed by the welcome afforded to us by a man, whom we presumed to be the owner, and his staff. The... More

We called into this place yesterday right on the cut off point for lunchtime food, the chap behind the bar "allowed" us to order but we had to be quick, his attitude made us feel like a nuisance so we ordered just to be a nuisance!!. I ordered a Ham, egg and chips and my wife ordered a steak and... More

This is quickly becoming our favourite pub/restaurant the food is excellent, with a great selection of affordable wines, for a real treat their pies are absolutely mouthwatering. The service is always fabulous - you are always remembered and the staff always have time for a chat - dogs welcome in the bar - do not believe the doubters it is... More

Lovely pub, great setting, menu was good, but after reading the reviews we were expecting a better standard of food, it was good but not really good. Staff attentive and friendly and a good local.

I was shocked at reading the last review as sounded like a different pub to the one we visited. We visited over Easter, two adults, a CHILD aged 10 and a dog. We were made very welcome, fabulous friendly atmosphere and wonderful original food. I believe the landlord has a point that they must have got the wrong pub with... More

On entering the bar the cleanliness of the place is striking. We noticed that the bar man was different to the norm. He was very welcoming to some customers and very rude to others, we just had a drink in the establishment. We noticed very strange bar practices, i.e. the Manager poured a wrong drink for a customer, instead of... More

My husband and I made a booking to take our four children here for lunch one Sunday. My youngest is 8 and my eldest is 13 and they are well behaved. There was no mention when we booked that the pub clearly dislikes having children of any age. On arrival, the older chap at the bar was surly and rude.... More

Dear reader, I guarantee that this "review" was not written following a meal at the Shilton Rose and Crown; (we don't serve our truly famous pies on Sunday lunch, as we serve truly fabulous roasts!) This was fabricated by an individual who's sole purpose was to mislead you, and attempt to harm my very successful business. Families are welcomed at... More
