Had a great night at the Cross House. We visited on a Saturday night, the pub was fully booked and yet the food, service and ambiance was first class. Large car park. My only slight complaint was the service charge added when paying the bill. We were asked to rate the service on the card reader, I elected excellent and the service charge was over 20% of the bill and way too much. Nothing was explained. Pity.

Lovely table by the widow, so could watch food being prepared and taken out. Relaxed atmosphere, good ambience. Excellent fish and chips, and the mussels in cider and cream were delicious. Attentive,friendly staff, would definitely return to try different dishes on the menu.

First time and ... wow. Really good food in a relaxed and unfussy atmosphere. Beautifully renovated place. Light and airy. Homemade desserts. The soufflé was excellent and the sea bass on chowder fantastic.

The bar area was very attractive and light . Unfortunately I had the only seat facing directly into
the sun , but the staff quickly improvised a temporary paper window blind to rectify this . We visited
on Sunday lunchtime and 2 of our party chose the pork , another the lamb . All were very satisfied .
I chose the fish and chips which were also very good with excellent crispy chips almost like mini roast
potatoes .
The food was well presented at very good prices. We were all too full to sample the dessert menu ,
which also looked very good.
The only things which disappointed were the noise level in the extremely crowded bar ( there was a local
marathon taking place that day ) and the fact that on your website I selected restaurant area rather than
bar area , but found we were seated in the bar . You did not tell us about this . However , we would certainly
return , but would check local events first

Bar area very noisy. The food was average,I'm not a fussy eater but found it hard to find something to eat. I had the chicken Kiev,it was burnt and didn't have much taste. We had heard good things about the pub since it had reopened but my party all said that we don't need to go there again.The menu is trying to be something it's not to many ingredients used.Keep it simple.

The Cross House Inn is our local pub and having been without it for several months whilst it was being refurbished, we are delighted to have it back again! The pub has been refurbished to an extremely high standard and it still retains its old "coaching inn" atmosphere but in a 21st century style. The staff are young, enthusiastic, polite and very attentive. There is a good selection of food - lunch and evening - as well as a very comprehensive wine list. The cost of the food and drinks reflect the high standard which this pub is aiming to achieve so it makes for an extremely entertaining venue whether is be lunch or dinner. We are looking forward to the summer when hopefully the weather will improve and enjoy eating/drinking outside in the pub garden. We have visited numerous times since the pub re-opened in September last year and have dined in either the bar area or the snug. The conservatory restaurant looks lovely and very impressive but rumour has it that the acoustics could make it somewhat noisy. We cannot comment because we have not eaten in the conservatory - yet!

Love what they have done with the pub and the food is very good. Only complaint is that the noise level is high which makes it difficult to have a conversation and this is not helped by having music playing.

Nice food, not cheap however. Service a little haphazard as starter plates removed before we’d even ordered! Then taken away once we’d ordered. Ok we didn’t go for starters but we might’ve wanted to use the side plates. Overall though a nice experience.

We are really pleased to have a place like this in our neighbourhood. It manages to combine still being a 'real pub', at the front in the bar area, with gourmet quality food in the restaurant. The refurbishment has been tasteful and creates a peaceful, attractive and quite luxurious ambience. I'm looking forward to the summer, when the restaurant can open out on to the lawned area outside. My only suggestion for improvement is the accoustic in the bar area, where the stone tiles with hardly any soft furnishing makes the noise level a little uncomfortable at busy times.

I was using this pub for the first time following a recommendation. It's recently been refurbished and is nicely done. Four of us met for lunch and had a main meal, desert and coffee. The food was swiftly delivered and excellent. The service was friendly and very efficient. None of us had any complaints about anything. I can definitely recommend it.

Great meal and we all really enjoyed. Minor point - my wife likes an archers and lemonade but you don’t currently stock archers. Something to consider?

We were recommended by a family member and the Pub was beautiful having opened only 4 months ago, the food was excellent as was the friendly service, the only problem was both the food and plate was not hot which is not what you would expect for a Sunday Roast.
