We have visited several times over the last two years. On each occasion the food has been well cooked and the service really good. We cannot fault it at all. The bread and butter pudding never fails to win our gold medal! The fish pie, Torbay sole, ham/egg/chips, liver, all really tasty. Rhubarb crumble was very nice too.

This dog friendly pub restaurant between Burford and Carterton is well worth travelling to. The service and food were both excellent as were the beers and wines and other drinks. We had a lovely family evening here and ti would be one of the first places to return to next time we are nearby.

On the edge of the cotswolds is this hidden gem in the village of Shilton. The menu is small but all the dishes are home cooked and great quality ingredients are used. This public house in a beautiful setting with a relaxed atmosphere. Great for an afternoons drinking and eating with friends!

Went here with the family Quaint pub, however lacking atmosphere and very quiet. Drink prices very expensive!! However food was delicious, loved the liver and bacon dish, the lamb was juicy and succulent Menu short and no children's menu Booking advised

Stayed in the area for three nights and ate here all three days two evening meals and Sunday lunch staff food service all excellent not a huge menu but we like this all very freshly prepared and no trouble choosing something different each time seemed to have lots of locals in which speaks for itself. Will be back next time... More

Oh dear, we stopped for Sunday lunch and the roast beef was chewy and the vegetables hardly cooked as is the current regrettable fashion - so that older people with ageing teeth like us had to leave most of our lunch untouched. Such a pity because the atmosphere and service was good.

This diminutive rustic, two roomed, 17th century pub stands in a narrow lane in the heart of the picturesque village of Shilton, which lies to the northwest of Brize Norton and Carterton in Oxfordshire. The village has a green at its centre, an arched stone bridge crosses the ford over the River Shill and many of its dwellings are made... More

Visiting friends who have moved to the locality, on a grey and miserable day we went to the Rose and Crown at Shilton. What a contrast to the day outside! Inside we were made to feel welcome, the open fire was attractive and the room (we were in the bar area) warm enough for me to remove my fleece and... More

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.
