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.
