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

This pub is one of the better ones: good food, atmosphere, and outstanding service. I had a pigeon terrine with pickled red onion that was excellent. My friends said their gravadlax and chicken liver starters were also excellent. My steak and ale pie with carrots, steamed cabbage and chips had a thick dark brown gravy that could have been a...

Great lunch in this charming pub. A pretty garden to sit in if eating alfresco, or plenty of tables inside. Parking available off road. I had aubergines baked in a tomato sauce topped with mozzarella cheese - yummy. My partners ham and cheese ciabatta was served with a dollop of coleslaw and chips. Impressive menu for a pub. Lovely unspoilt... More

I love this place, quite simply the best pub food you'll eat. I must confess that due to it location and proximity to my place of work i've become quite a regular here coming for lunch at least a couple of times a month. The steak & ale pie is a master-piece of flavour and the lamb shoulder is as... More

A week or so ago I went to a pub in Winchcombe, The Cotswolds , that claimed to provide traditional food. I chose liver it was quite frankly dreadful. I make this comment as a backdrop to my decision to choose liver at this pub. It was as good as the other was bad. Cooked to perfection on a swede... More

We were on holiday near to Burford around Easter time. Stumbled upon the Rose & Crown in the pretty village of Shilton. Staff and locals so,so friendly. We were able to take our dog into the bar area where he was greeted by a lot of other friendly pooches. Had a lovely meal and really enjoyed the atmosphere of the... More

Been to the Rose and Crown for a lunch because one of my colleagues is leaving from RAF Brize Norton for other climes temporarily. Never been here before but anyone looking at the the lunch menu should find something. Unless they are incredibly picky. I personally had something off the board. Pea and ham risotto, which was delicious, but can... More

After drinks in the garden last summer we decided to book a table one Saturday evening. The atmosphere and food were very nice, we will definately go back and would certainly recommend it!

Shilton is a gorgeous Cotswold Village with a real ford you can navigate, beautiful properties and a pub to match. Dropped in to meet folks at short notice so we took lunch at 'The Rosie'. Beer great, menu simple but food good and staff friendly. It was a cool day and so their lighting the fire made for a smokey... More
