This beautifully situated Inn above the river Avon is sadly in need of raising it`s standard. The staff were very friendly and helpful, while the landlord appeared grumpy. The food was ok. We had lovely fruit ( strawberries and chocolates as well), in our room, but the furnishings and cleanliness left much to be desired. The canopy of our 4... More

My husband and I had the most wonderful meal the other evening at The Cross Guns. I can only eat gluten free and was so impressed with how well they accommodated this. The food was simply delicious, the setting exquisite and people warm and friendly. I would highly recommend this pub as a delightful and very reasonably priced place to... More

We visited whilst on a canal holiday. The food was good quality and served in a reasonable time. If you have a hound, they even have doggy treats. One of our party had the mixed grill - enough to feed a small family for several days - and found it splendid. If you want a really nice, friendly, down to... More

Sometimes you end up finding a gem when you're least expecting it. Not sure what one of the other posters was talking about, as we've found The Cross Guns to be the most amazing pub. Character, location, service, atmosphere, The Cross Guns has it all in spades. We stayed as B&B. Ken Roberts and his whole team offer AMAZING, caring... More

Was a little sceptical about eating here reading the recent reviews although have frequented many times in the past.. But as we were moored just around the corner decided to & so glad we did.. The meal was delicious, fish & chips and Cod in a sauce with chips.. The service was good too.. Great atmosphere in lovely location.

We had lunch in this pub on Sunday February 8th. We had just finished a long walk so a pint and a roast were welcome. The pub was very busy but we managed to find a table near the kitchen. The staff were lovely to us and very helpful. The roast lamb was excellent and despite how busy they were... More

Stunning location with tremendous potential. Just returned from lunch at this establishment which was probably the worst meal I've had ever. Cajun chicken which was so tough I've had to bring it home to the dogs. The staff were courteous and helpful but oh dear, the food was so bad. My husband had scampi which I believe was totally devoid... More

If you are after silver service and meals that look like a piece of art, this is not the place for you. If you want friendly, relaxed service, clean comfy rooms and good honest tasty food the the Cross Guns ticks all the boxes (it did for us anyway). YES the bar is not manned every second of the day,... More

This place has the potential to be a great place to eat, it's a stunning building and amazing location.... Unfortunately the food and service let it down. The food is average and the service pretty poor. The staff are disorganised and slow and we had a really long wait for food. The queue was out the door as nobody at... More

Varied but poor food ( who can't make a cheese and onion sandwich without putting the onion in the sandwich? ) Disgusting toilets. A| poor service does not compliment the views, which are the only redeeming factor here, whilst the owner swishes by in his merc.
