Visited the Green Cross Inn Earlier this month (january 2012) As you enter the Green Cross your greated with what feels like a 1970's italian eattery. The red paint makes for a heavy feeling and the decor perhaps family air looms from generations past, randomly placed on the walls!? Deffinatly in need of modernisation! Fortunatly we had booked in the dining room. Or maybe not so fortunate! the resturant feels very distant from the rest of the building, a barn type convertion stuck to the back of the building with a very cold feel! Speaking of Cold feelings, the wating staff! After sitting for around 10 minutes i walked back to the bar to order our drinks. Around 10 more minutes past, Luckily it took this long as it took us a fair while to look through the menu. No order to it. Just one long list of item after item, perhaps around 30 - 40 dishes. We finally decided. Potted Shrimps and Ham and mellon to start followed by dover sole and halibut. Service was quick. Only a 5 minute wait. Although i had a feeling we wouldnt have our starters cleared for another good half an hour as i had only seen the waitor once since sitting! The Food was fantastic, maybe a bit out dated but really enjoyable. The mains came quickly, again fantastic. Perfectly cooked fish and a good size. Also sides included in the price. So although it looks pricey at first glance you dont have to reach that deep!
in conclusion - Fantastic Food 5 *
unfortunatly very outdated, Perhaps with a bit of paint and good planning this could be the next big thing! As there are a few other local resturants that have recently gone under major cosmetic surgery and are doing exceptionally well.

What a fab pub! great food,I had skate wing with a lovely lemony and caper butter and my husband had haddock nicoise, couldn't be faulted..loads of thin crispy chips and a huge plate of fresh vegetables all included in the price on the menu for the main dish - not charged as extras.....Big garden and a fair sized Dining Room although we ate in the bar.
Can't comment on the Harveys but the Guiness and Sauvingnon Blanc were cold and wet!
Will return to this place again. Fantastic!

The pub had been recommended to me as a good place to eat in the area. I drove from London to visit it and then onto Sissinghurst. The menu was tempting though there were too many dishes which should have warned me.
My guest and I ordered potted shrimp to start which were good though the bread was over toasted. Our mains were appalling - the barbeque ribs had no sauce on them (it was on the side and cold) the ribs themselves smelled very odd and were inedible. My steak pie which freshly cooked veg where do I start. The vegs were pre cooked and heated up and very limp no butter on them to help either, the pie was not a pie obviously the meat had been re heated as there was a film over the sauce and the pastry was like nothing I have ever eaten and I would never wish to meet again! It was a hard dark brown three millimetre thin biscuit and impossible to eat.
With great reluctance and worry we returned the dishes to the waitress it was inedible, a minute later a very aggressive man approached us and harangued us causing extreme distress and embarrassment - he insisted he had eaten the food and there was nothing wrong with it. Whatever happened to the maxim the customer is always right. An awful meal an appalling man and a dining experience I never wish to experience again! APPALLING!!

Not really a pub to my mind, more a restaurant set in a bar. Most expensive pint of Harveys I've ever bought (3.30) but then I haven't been up to town for a while, London folk are probably used to such extortion. Don't visit this place if you aren't keen on fish there were only a handful of non-fish items on the menu but for seafood lovers I think this must be heaven. "Best crab this side of Padstow... Best bouillabaisse this side of Marseille"!
