Went there for a birthday party had the steak and ale pie. Wonderful it was hot when I had it and half way through it was still hot and very tasty. The chips were nice and thick. A lot of pees nice but maybe a little to many.

I have been to the Cross Oaks a few times now with family and friends and on all times it has been lovely. The family who run it are lovely people and it really makes a difference. Will definitely be going back soon to have a chicken curry, it is delicious!!

My partner and I called there on the off for a meal last night and was very pleasantly surprised at how polite, friendly and welcoming the staff were. Our meal was ordered along with drinks. The food was nothing short of excellent and reasonably priced also. I hadn't been here for many years but it won't be long before we... More

Rented out their function room for my father-in-law's wake in January. The owner's were very helpful, sitting down with us to discuss food options and such. Reasonably priced. We stayed the night and our room was very clean and modern, one of the better looking pub accommodations we've stayed at during our numerous trips to Wales/England over the years. Enjoyed... More

I visit this pub once a month, usually on Thursday night for the pub quiz. Very nice food and friendly staff. Thursday night pub quiz is a lot of fun and all the regulars are friendly! Rooms are very good value for money. Homemade desserts are really very good too!
