Quite busy and had a good atmosphere although my pint wasn't the best I have ever tasted. Staff welcoming and friendly.

Popped into The Old Cross to have lunch today. It was served very promptly by obliging and pleasant staff. It was very tasty.

Excellent choice on the menu and wide variety of drinks available. The pub was clean, as were the toiletds and glasses knives and forks.

I look forward to going back there!!

This looks like a fantastic old pub from the outside, and is conveniently situated right on the High Street. Inside its a bit disappointing though. Its obviously part of a large chain with various corporate menus and notices around the place and with its wooden panelling and leather sofas has the feel in some places of a hotel lounge bar rather than a pub.

Although it is presumably a genuinely old building it must have at some time in the past lost all its original internal features, and theres been a pathetic attempt to recreate them. The fake wooden beams are bad enough, but have a look at the black wooden lintel above the alcove on the left of the pub. Here youll find stuck on plastic mouldings that are supposed to resemble the carvings that you would get on an old fire place or the like. But they just look as though someones thrown Yorkshire puddings at it. The fact that the middle one has fallen off and just left an imprint where it used to be is even worse. Its almost worth a trip in to the pub just so you can have a laugh.

Clearly the locals are wise to the fake nature of this pub, and on a recent Monday night visit we were the only people in there until a couple of others wandered in to enquire whether they were actually open or not. The barmaid was fairly disinterested (understandable, perhaps) and bizarrely served a port in a straight glass like you would get a lemonade in. Whats that about?

Beers on offer were Spitfire, Adnams Broadside and Greene King IPA. The only cider was Strongbow unfortunately.
