Decided to give it our yearly chance, upon forgetting quite how dreadful a pub this is. However, we weren't disappointed as the doors were closed 45 minutes before the closing time, as advertised on the board beside the door! (As it's clearly so popular)

We were in the Cotswolds for just a week and whilst the Orangery provided the best overall meal I had, this place provided the best dish. I simply loved the cod. It was cooked to perfection and was so tasty. We had the rabbit and...More

We chose to widen our choice of local pubs and opted to visit The Shilton Rose & Crown. We didn't have any food (which incidentally smelt and looked very appetising) the staff still paid equal attention to us as drinking visitors. The Hooky ale was...More

What an absolutely delightful review, thank you so much. The nature of a website like this, is that the majority of reviews are by customers discovering us for the first time; however, the majority of our customers are regular visitors, so it is wonderful to...More

Second visit to this wonderful, quaint little pub, a hidden gem just minutes outside of Burford. Was listed in Cotswold Life top pubs so thought we would give it a try. What can we say? Such a warm welcome, friendly and attentive staff, not overbearing...More
