A proper pub in a perfect place
The Rose & Crown is in the heart of the idyllic village of Shilton, two miles south of Burford, in the Cotswolds. Dating back to the 17th Century, it is a traditional Cotswold stone inn, with original beams and a log fire in each of the two rooms. In warm weather, customers can enjoy dining and drinking at the dozen tables in the charming garden. Well supported by local residents, it manages to combine being a friendly village ‘local’, as well as a destination food pub.
PUB OPENING SATURDAY 4TH JULY
OPENING TIMES MAY VARY
PLEASE CALL US TO CHECK TIMES AND/OR RESERVE A TABLE
After 3 ½ months of lockdown, we are reopening. Things, however, will not be “back to normal”. We must follow government guide lines, to ensure that any potential to spread Covid-19 is minimised. To ensure the safety of staff and customers, a one meter (plus) social distancing rule is in place, which halves our capacity inside.
As in normal conditions, we cannot take reservations for garden tables, as we cannot control the weather, or have staff to be permanently outside. If you wish to come for a meal, it is either “first come first served” in the garden, or reserve a table inside. For an inside table please make a reservation, for a table of more that 4, this is essential. Should you choose to sit outside, and the weather conditions deteriorate, you will not be able to move inside the pub, unless social distance can be maintained.
If you feel unwell, stay at home, do not come to the pub.
Any customers inside are required to sit at a table.
Inside tables may be shared by a maximum of 2 households.
There will be no drinking at the bar, or standing inside.
Outside tables may be shared by a maximum of 2 households, or a maximum of 6 people from different households.
Customers with children are responsible for supervising then at all times, so they must stay seated at the table, and maintain social distancing.
Failure to observe safety measures will result in service not being provided.
We will be operating a one way system through the pub – in through the front door, out by the garden door. When you enter the pub, there will be hand sanitiser on the bar, which you are encouraged to use, or wash your hands in the toilets. One person in each party should queue at the bar (maximum of 2 queuing inside, others to queue outside,) to sign in, with contact details, and then to order drinks. The rest of the party should go directly to their table. If it is an inside table, please wait to be seated by a member of staff, who will have sanitized the table and chairs. You will be given one “single use”menu per table, and we will take your order at the table. If it is an outside table, please ask for one menu, which should be kept for pudding orders, and join the queue again to place your food order. Wherever you are sitting, your food will be brought to your table when it is ready.
