We regularly go to the Crosshouse and it is nearly always excellent. Good fixed price menu, very good a la carte and always a specials menu if you want something a bit different from standard pub grub. Food is always freshly prepared and piping hot. Always a good selection of real ales.

Very homely and greeted with a very warm and genuine welcome. Food was lovely, with all the family enjoying what they ordered. Speedy service but never felt rushed. Don't just stumble across it like we did, pop it in your list of things to do. It's a shame it's not closer to home but would visit again should the opportunity... More

We recently moved into Formby and have visited several other pubs but this was the first time we had been to the Crosshouse, I like a pint of beer or two and was impressed with the selection of local beers on offer the staff on the bar were happy to give us tasters on the beers we were unsure of,...

Pretty awful all round I'm afraid, initial service was ok being shown to our table but rapidly downhill...menu quite extensive, however the two steaks ordered medium-rare were well done, peas were bog standard frozen variety, chips the same, service was slower than slow even though the pub was quiet. Instantly forgettable, miles behind the likes of the Freshfield which embarrasses... More

The food here is consistently good, however I have only ever ordered one thing from the menu as it's my favourite; Fish and Chips! It should be renamed as Whale and chips as it's absolutely huge. I love it. My partner always try's something new and always claims it's fantastic. Really would recommend. Dinner for 2 with starters and drinks... More

Always nice to go to the Cross House. Atmosphere is good, the food always reliable and the staff are all very nice. What is more they have a good range of beers to choose from and they are always kept well.

Have visited several times for lunch and have found it excellent. The menu is above average and the food is well cooked. Drinks are brought to the table and the dining area is set back from the TV and bar area. On the occasions when I have lunched there it had been good to see a mixture of guests -... More

Food was good but marred by very poor and disinterested service. Had to wait over 45 minutes for food to arrive. Very disappointed

Having been to the crosshouse many times I simply just can't fault it with both staff service and atmosphere being top class. Great place to go for lunch, dinner or just a drink with the 3 courses for a tenner being fantastic value. I've never had a bad meal at this place. I rate the Crosshouse for what it is... More
