We visited The Golden Cross on 28 March in a party of 4 adults and 1 child. We found the surroundings to be lovely, the staff friendly and the food superb. Unfortunately, due to a booking at the theatre, we were unable to sample anything off the sweet menu. We would highly recommend and will visit again.

I was going to say that their food "is to die for", perhaps I shouldn't; or better still :- you gotta eat it before you do ! The restaurant, the menus, the staff, the ambience are the stars of The Golden Cross. Book a table here and all the staff will remember your name every time you dine there. The... More

In this 500 year old hotel lots of history and character, but such a small bedroom. At least it had an ensuite bathroom. Good breakfast.

Situated near the centre of town, the restaurant is in a lovely old building, full of character and well cared for. The tables and seating are very nice in a room not too big or small, which makes for a lovely atmosphere for a couple or small party. Portion sizes were spot and well presented, although flavours were an issue.... More

Me and my husband wanted to eat and we came upon this place. We thought it was a pub from the outside but it was a lovely restaurant. Food was gorgeous and the wine was so nice that even my husband wanted to know what it was. The service was so good but as there were not many people in... More

A second visit. We first visited with family in the run up to Christmas 2011. The food was excellent and we put the average service down to the fact that it was very busy and, not having booked, we were very lucky to be squeezed in. We returned tonight and, once again, we were treated to excellent food and a... More

We called to book ahead so glad we did as it was Friday night and it was full, we had the last table. The food was delicious good size portions - big enough to satisfy a... More
