“Best Chips Around!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

Lovely lovely lovely! Great staff, beautiful atmosphere and fantastic food. The burger was delicious and the chips were the best! Crunchy on the outside, soft in the middle. The chefs are wonderful. Couldn't recommend strongly enough!!!

“Great bar restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

I live in Moseley and visited the cross many times just for a nice hot chocolate .....I opted to eat from their home made food menu boasting every meal has 100% freshly prepared ingredients made in the kitchen ..
As a vegetarian I chose pasta linguine with mozerello cheese ..this was the best pasta dish I have tasted ..very yummy .I wanted their home made desserts so chose the home made ban coffee pie as well as their home made cheese cake ...exquisite so beatiful...this is my regular food home now ..so adorable and the place is homely as well having great friendly staffxx

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

I've heard about this restaurant quite a few times , some of my friends recommend to me said its worth to trying, I go with my family we order 4 roast beef the beef was tender and flavoursome and good portion and Yorkshire pudds and gravy were definitely homemade this is the best roast I've ever had , go and try it, you will not be disappointed, I will be booking my table again very soon.

“fresh food, well priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Fabulous fresh-only menu and well priced. I recommend the burgers which are hand made from the best ingredients. There is a happy hour for food and drink from 5 til 9pm so the burgers only cost a fiver, with chips and a salad it's a bargain. The pizzas are great too, again, entirely handmade, and you can tell.
The new toilets are upstairs and a welcome addition to the venue. A new music policy and lots of live music and comedy going on.
