Had a Lovely family meal there today on a Saturday lunchtime . A good menu and choice of real ales. Staff were very professional and the room layout very relaxed. Food took about 10 minutes even though the place was almost full. A great British Pub.

As a real lover of traditional pubs with great food and service I was not dissapointed with The Golden Cross. With a party of 13 and struggling to find somewhere to accommodate us for Sunday lunch, it was a delight when they said they had space at 330. We ordered Sunday lunch times 13 and despite being late in the... More

We had booked and prepaid well in advance for 2 nights in September as we were attending a wedding in the Cotswolds. Supper was good but expensive (we had to pay extra for my husband to have bread with his soup). The young serving staff were charming. Our twin-bedded room, however, was quite revolting. Had the beds not been comfortable;... More

With so many towns being dominated by soulless pub/wine bar chains this is a great "boozer" It's a proper pub with friendly welcoming staff, well cooked food focusing not on trying to be a fancy restaurant but concentrating on wholesome food with local ingredients. If you're visiting Cirencester and want the feel of the Cotswolds then try this place out... More

Good value for money £55 paid for one night extra for a breakfast served after 10am. Carpet needed a good clean shame otherwise perfect accommodation. The room was acceptable nothing special just the basics. This is primary a pub business with a few rooms. Food is the core of the business and has good reviews worth a try.

Recently visited for Sunday lunch with my family, all our meals were excellent. The meat ( in my case pork loin, my mother had the lamb ) were of a very high quality, vegetables were cooked perfectly, portions were generous ( and I'm a big eater ). Good selection of local beers. Friendly staff, good prompt service although it was... More

Such a shame. A great location and the potential to be a really nice pub, all ruined by a disagreeable, hostile and boorish owner who managed to make the whole experience totally unpleasant. Also the beer is much more expensive than the other bars in the town. Wouldn't go again if you paid me.

May 28th 2015 The food was edible although not much on the plate! However the service was awful, the table behind us and ourselves were rushed... The young lady serving asked if we had finished and if we would like anything else, we declined politely. At which point she asked if we wanted the bill, before even the main course... More
