I attended this pub on a whim on a Sunday. I have often driven past the pub but had never been in so I thought I would give it a try. We ordered a Sunday roast with starters, and we did plan on having desert. The staff are very friendly, the menu encouraging and the portion sizes generous. However I... More

Can't comment on the bar but Give the food a miss. I Went for a Sunday roast here recently and was very disappointed. There are lots of amazing pubs offering tasty Sunday's roasts in the area and unfortunately the Cross Inn is not one of them.

We are so sorry you were disappointed with your meal, and that it’s not possible to respond more fully as your review lacks detail. However we hope you will reconsider a visit perhaps for our good value Thursday £11 Steak Night, our Friday £7 Fish Night or our £5 very good value lunch. More

We have recently moved to Llanblethian and were really excited to try the Cross inn. We went on a sunday afternoon at 12.15pm. The food was terrible! I couldn't even eat my lunch. We had the sunday roast and I can honestly say it was the worst meal I have ever had. The food was cold, the gravy was like... More

Last visited this pub many years ago and were less than impressed. However we decided after reading reviews a return visit would be worthwhile and were highly delighted with what we found. A welcoming atmosphere, smiling and conversational staff, good beer, a varied menu with a number of specials on offer and food excellent in quality, price and presentation. We... More

Excellent local food with a full menu and lots of daily specials. Good local beer with friendly service. A cosy atmosphere on a windswept night, with a roaring wood burning stove. There is obviously an extensive patio area for alfresco dining when the weather is better.

Another great country pub near Cowbridge. Easy walking distance from town so you can have more than one drink. The food is superb and would highly recommend it.

A lovely little country pub on the edge of Cowbridge with log burners both in the bar and the restaurant, making it feel very cosy on a cold winters day. We were made to feel very welcome by the staff and enjoyed a delicious Sunday roast served with seasonal veg (not just peas and carrots) and beautiful thick gravy. Will... More
