A warm welcome awaits at the Shaven Crown Hotel near Chipping Norton. This historic establishment is one of the ten oldest inns in the country. Full of charm and character with log fires, real ales and delicious food. The hotel was founded in the 14th century by the monks of Bruern Abbey and later used as a hunting lodge by Queen Elizabeth I. Through the centuries it has maintained its charm and many original features remain, including the 14th century gateway and the double-braced roof structure of the Great Hall.
Dining is a special affair at the Shaven Crown. The restaurant serves traditional British cuisine using only the finest local ingredients. For those who wish to dine in calm and tranquillity we recommend our intimate restaurant, while the courtyard provides the perfect setting for al fresco dining in the summer. The Monk's Bar is the hub of the hotel full of character and atmosphere. The bar provides the perfect setting for guests and locals to enjoy real ales, fine wines and excellent food.
The hotel has 8 bedrooms with en suite. Each room is unique, but all abound with traditional charm and character, especially our feature room which was once the chapel, and boasts a four-poster bed and double height ceiling. One large room is situated on the ground floor enabling access for those who wish to avoid too many steps (this can also be used as a family room).
