    The food was good (nothing special, but good enough for the reasonable price), and the staff were friendly enough when you approached them, but they could have been a bit more attentive. I said I wouldn't recommend, but I would not tell someone not to go either. It was all good enough, but very average.

    The New Cross HouseResponded on 17 October 2021Thank you for letting us know about your recent visit to our pub, and I'm really sorry that we've not been able to give you a great experience. This isn't our usual standard and your feedback will be taken on board.

    Pizzas were good, fresh from the pizza oven. No visible of signs of the drag night promised on the sign outside.

    The New Cross HouseResponded on 29 September 2021Hello Hornblower, we appreciate you taking the time to leave us this feedback. The drag night is upstairs, the bar staff would have gladly navigated you in the right direction. It is every Friday at 8pm - hopefully you can make it to another one.

    The Roast was overall OK, but the chicken could be more seasoned, the potatoes could be crispier...however everything else is excellent...

    This is a lively pub with a great atmosphere. Service was excellent and friendly. Food is the usual pub menu and we had samphire pakoras to share, followed by anchovy and olive pizza. If I’m honest, it was a little disappointing but still edible. I think I’d go for something different on the menu next time. I’ll definitely visit the pub again for the vibe.

    Outstanding food. The Margherita pizza was delicious alongside a pot of chips and some very juicy, suculant chicken wings. Seating was spectacular and service was excellent, one down fall however, that being the Amstel. Did not taste anywhere near what I know an amstel to taste like? However given the new cross houses fabulous other attributes, I looked past this and chose a different drink. Would go again.

    The New Cross HouseResponded on 2 July 2021We're happy to hear you had such a positive experience with us! Thanks for the feedback regarding the Amstel will take this on board

    This is a great place! Staff is super friendly and food is great. Prices are also good, and the overall experience was great! We went on a Friday evening and the noise levels were very reasonable. Music on the background but perfectly able to hold a conversation. The staff were specially great. Everyone had a (masked) smile on their face and were very prompt refilling empty glasses (careful with this, we ended up drinking maybe one too many!) They are also dog friendly and very welcoming. Definitely one to repeat

    The New Cross HouseResponded on 16 June 2021Lovely to read your comments about your experience, I'll make sure to pass them on to the rest of the team.

    Checked the menu before hand to make sure there was enough veggie option for me the vegan cheeseburger and fries I went for was £14 and just ok...not great. Wouldn’t recommend for veggie vegan or pescatarian - what a shame...this place used to have an amazing varied menu!

    The worst Sunday lunch I've ever had. Avoid. We ordered the vegetarian wellington and the roast chicken. Seconds later two small pots of something that looked like solidified porridge arrived, long before the rest of the food. It turned out to be cold bread sauce. Who eats bread sauce cold? We were told that's how they serve it there. The food arrived, it wasn't hot, we sent it back and were offered free drinks. We didn't want free drinks, we just wanted hot food. It came back, some of it hotter, but not all of it. The chicken was dry, the vegetarian gravy was like carrot soup, and the veg wellington was strangely sweet. The horseradish sauce just tasted of vinegar. The only good thing about the whole terrible experience was that the manager kindly didn't charge us for any of it.

    The service was slow and food cold the server put her sleeve in my food when serving and when this was pointed out said that it was ok as it hadn't ruined her top! The covid measures where farsicle. Although staff members wore a mask at least 5 came to our table at different points touching things. Then sat together with their masks off at a table once their shift had finished. Have been before with much better service.

    I was so impressed about how warm and friendly service was whilst maintaining an extremely high level of safety surrounding covid-19 prevention. I was pleasantly surprised as this is one of the only pubs I have felt completely safe in, in regards to the pandemic prevention techniques put in place. The food was great, even though the menu I had gotten used to changed, everything sounded lovely and my meal, along with my party's meals, were amazing and came out very quickly. Loved it!

    Food was fantastic but we ordered starters and mains using the website thinking food would come out in that order but it all came out at the same time so I was waiting my main before my starter. You may need to order as you want it so place a starter order first and mains afterwards.

    The pub was clean and well presented and all staff showed a positive and helpful attitude. The pizzas we were served were well presented and tasty, though could have had a bit more toppings. Staff could be more attentive, as they did not even bother to offer us cutlery and we had to request it. It was beyond belief to observe there were so many anti-Covid measures, yet staff were expecting us to eat our pizzas with our hands. The ambience was pleasant and welcoming. There could be more items on the menu, as the number of options was limited.
