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.

We stayed overnight here as part of a two day cycling and walking adventure along the Avon canal. We had few expectations and were just bowled over by the spectacular location - right on a weir on the river Avon set up into the hill above the river. The pub garden spills down to the river edge. The pub interior... More

The views are excellent over the river to the hills beyond. We walked along the canal from Bradford on Avon and were delighted with the wide choice available for lunch. The gardens looked inviting but as it was not too warm we ate inside. The bar has character. Staff were helpful and the service good. We had no complaints about... More

Having read the reviews, I had to recheck I had the same place. I dont agree with the comments as I will remember the Cross Guns as a lovely English pub with character. The staff were friendly, there was a good selection of beers and a very reasonably priced large selection of 'cocktails' (though sat afternoon wasn't the time to... More

I read all the reviews I could about this place before I posted this & sadly, I can concur that the location is stunning & the food was awful. It was lunchtime & not busy & we ordered the burger & chips & one could have had better at a hot-dog stand outside a football stadium. "Pappy" bread, processed cheese... More

A nice venue next to the canal, Service was friendly enough I but food was awful. Would never have food there again. I think everything was microwaved. The chef was shouting at staff. Not enjoyable and over priced

Visited here on a sunny Saturday in July with a group of friends. Queued to order food for 20 mins to be told your number would be called out soon. Soon turned into 45 mins. Your number is screeched out from the pub kitchen when you have to then climb the steep steps from beer garden to collect. I wouldn't... More

The location is amazing - right on the Avon canal where it goes over the aquaduct but not easy to find. We drove, according to the instructions, on and on down a country road with hardly any room for two cars to pass, until we came down a steep lane to see the canal and The Cross Guns at the... More

We cycled from Bath to The Cross Guns on Monday - my husband has many happy memories of this pub with its beautiful setting. The setting has not changed, the glass of wine was lovely but oh! No the toilets are so disgusting, one for males & one for ladies and outside the main building- great in the rain. My... More
