Stopped by this gem of the Oxfordshire countryside for a cheeky half mid bike ride. The classic low wood beamed roof, good beer and roaring fire kept us in her comforting and joyful brace for a solid two pints before we jollily wobbled and meandered home on our bikes. For ambience, one of the best in the area.

Summary: cosy, old, slightly out the way, friendly. Two friends and I stopped here for a convenient halfway point rest on one of our Oxfordshire cycle rides. We were welcomed in from the cold and greeted by friendly staff, a good beer collection and more importantly, a cosy warm fire! Soon we found ourselves chatting to the friendly locals and... More

Got a lunch table for four, phoning late in the morning of Xmas Eve. Received a friendly welcome and attentive service. Dining room was not very warm despite the wood burning stove. The parsnip and chestnut soup was excellent as were the liver and fish pie dishes. Despite other reviews comments about children there were five in the dining room... More

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you enjoyed your visit to the Shilton Rose and Crown. On the subject of children: well behaved children are welcomed at lunchtime. However, our kitchen is rather small so we do not offer a children's menu, but some dishes can be served in children's portions. All dishes are cooked to order... More

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...
