“AMAZING service, food & music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

Attended our christmas party at Cross Roads and was more than pleased with the set up. It was a semi-formal/formal event and the place looked and felt awesome. The dinner that was put out was delicious and the staff were efficient & courteous. Mike, Lee & the staff should be commended for being able to host any kind of event from pub fair to fine dining. Thank you for a great night.

“Erica was the Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

We live in the local community and have been going to Crossroads Pub (aka Colwood Corners) for years. We've always enjoyed the food, the atmosphere is comfy, not too noisy, and the staff pleasant. Tonight was exceptional though. We cycled in, locked our bikes to a tree, and went inside to be greeted by Erica!

We fiddled and phaffed around trying to find the perfect spot for our conversation with our other friend who would be arriving. Little did she know (and we didn't say) one of us was wearing two hearing aids so where sit and the volume of conversation is important to us to enjoy ourselves. She smiled, accommodated, and after we 'listened' in three locations found our spot. She was quick with the beers and patient with our orders - as we talked and talked and talked!

As always the food was delicious, and as we struggled with that 'extra beer' question knowing one of our mates was in a car, rather than say 'no' they decided to share one! Keep legal, enjoy that last sip. When we received our bill - without asking - she had 'divided up the appies, divided up the beers' and presented us with three bills anticipating we would be paying separately. No fuss, a big smile! What an absolute treat. How many times have waitress begrudged dividing up the bill, wanting to lump people together, etc. She made our night, and if there was a SUPER EMPLOYEE award and customers could vote - we would put our ballet in her box. The wait staff are vital to a pub/restaurant - too bad more weren't like Erica.

If there was one improvement I would suggest - get some bike racks! This is a town of cyclists - but we love to enjoy a pint! If you are in a car, lots of free parking.

“Gluten Frre Menu Fanatastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2009

This restaurant offers people with celiac disease a menu that is out of this world. Three pages of items to choose from with a discription of preparation and ingredients that only a person with celiac disease would know is safe to eat. I wish I knew you were there.. They offer take out as well. Highly recommend you will think you have died and gone to heaven..Thank you for a meal I will never forget
