If you are in the Burford area, it's well worth making the 2/3-mile trip to the picture-postcard village of Shilton and availing yourself of the unmatched atmosphere and peerless food of the Rose & Crown. The over-used description 'unspoilt' has never been more apt or deserved – a proper pub, with no glitzy pretensions but plenty of superb nosh and... More

We went there once for the pub and came back three times for the restaurant. We love the puddings : Sticky toffee, bread and butter. They could have more vegetarian options according to me. The staff is nice and helpful. A very nice place to recommend. With a fireplace too!

After a recent family holiday visit from Lincolnshire to visit the beautiful surroundings of the Cotswolds for the first time we stopped at the historical town of Burford to enjoy the atmosphere. We then arrived for Sunday lunch at the Rose and Crown pub in the nearby village of Shilton, Oxon.That's where the excitement of the Cotswolds ended. Sunday lunchtime... More

Our first visit to this pub after wanting to visit Shilton for some time. We had reserved a table by telephone. When we arrived at the pub, it was quite busy with most of the tabes full. I suppose we should have been alarmed by the presentation of the food on the table beside us, but, looking forward to a... More

We eat here regularly but we have never tried Sunday lunch before. We will certainly be doing so again. We both had roast beef which was cooked to perfection along with all the accompaniments. The service, as ever, was excellent in a perfect location. I am happy to let someone else take the strain when I have less than four... More

Its a classic Cotswold stone building tastefully modernised. On a Tuesday lunch time it was busy enough for a hidden country pub restaurant. It is however in the Good Pub Guide and Michelin and deservedly so. People were reserving for evening meals over the bar! The locals were a friendly lot. I wanted a "lite bite" and ordered in the...

Visited the pub for Sunday lunch on 18th September. We wanted to go somewhere different in the Burford area since we were visiting there for the day. Having checked on Trip Advisor we thought the pub looked really interesting. We booked a table the same day and went there at 2.00 p.m. The pub had a really nice ambience and... More
