Recently changed ownership and an already nice pub has been improved. Its one of those places that you feel comfortable in; friendly service - and good beer too. A favourite place for Saturday lunch.

We were very impressed with our dinner at the Golden Cross, which has been very recently refurbished and is under relatively new management. As long as this excellent beginning holds, we shall visit regularly, because we have looked for some time for such a combination of comfort, wholesome cooking and good-natured straightforward hospitality. We ate in the bar area, which... More

Great to see the transformation that this great pub has undergone over the last months. Now tastefully decorated and very cosy for just a drink or a meal. The new management team are very friendly and helpful! We had a meal on Sunday evening, the roast beef had sold out (usually a good sign) so we had a meal from... More

Went as part of an 18 strong walking group last Wednesday. Despite handing them a list of exactly what we wanted at 10.30, we had a call at 12.30 (which meant they'd only just read it) to say they had no liver. The person concerned chose fish and chips instead, only to be told they'd run out of that too!... More

We decided to try the Sirloin steak today. The meat was lovely and tender and cooked to perfection. Home made chips and onion rings are simply delicious. The beef dripping gravy sauce was absolutely gorgeous. Even though we were full we had to try the desserts. treacle sponge with custard and chocolate orange torte SCRUMPTIOUS. See you again very soon.

We called in at just before 7pm and ordered a Chicken Curry, and the Pie of the day. Both were deliver after a reasonable time but the curry was totally bland, served with oil covered prawn crackers instead of pompadom and when I asked for some chutney I was told there was none. The pie of the day came in... More

£19 for four courses. The turkey did not look like it had been carved from the bird and looked suspiciously like a catering pre-packed job. Neither parsnips or roasters had been 'roasted' the latter a big disappointment and lacked a crispy finish - they had been 'shown' the oven but not roasted (suspicions abounded that they were frozen Mrs Beatty's...
