Stayed here for the night after visiting Highgrove Gardens, which is only a short drive away. Management and staff were really friendly and helpful. Both rooms (our party had a double and a single) were very clean and beds comfy. This is a historic old building and the layout and rooms reflects this but that's the charm of the place.... More

Room 18 very smelly not clean. Room 17 we had filthy towels, and no fan in this stilfeling hot room, don't open the window as it sounds like ground pre, don't complain Manager rude. Cully lovely. Breakfast server. Did have other pleasant staff, but on the Whole not a happy bunch. Would not stay again.

Found the Cross Hands one Saturday evening on the way home. Staff were helpful and well mannered. Food and drink were good value for money and of good quality, although the ripple part of my sister's ice cream was missing.

Really enjoyed dinner at the hotel on Friday evening. Good, variable menu, portion size just right, friendly service. Veg a little crunchy for my wife but just right for me! 2 glasses of Prosciutto for £5~Friday night offer! Lovely!

Having been to many of the Old English Inn's, once again The Cross Hands at Old Sodbury lives up to their excellent record. If I can give a couple of tips, make sure you book a table if you wish to eat as they go fast and ask for a rear facing food as the front rooms are very noisy... More

Took advantage of a "steak for a fiver" deal with the family. Good value and an efficient freindly service. Have visited on a few occasions and always had a decent meal served by a friendly face. Sometimes the service can be slow at the bar but that is due to the sometimes low numbers of staff.

Thought I would write a review as we have eaten here for a second time and been very pleased with both food and service. We've had the sun lunch which was filling and tasty. Today, fish and chips and the haddock pie, both on the cheaper menu list. Very good value and tasty. Portion size just right for lunch although... More

7 of us ate at the cross hands at the weekend. You need to book a table on weekends as they are very busy. They have an extensive menu with a wide price range. We chose several different dishes and we all enjoyed our meals. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Would return if in the area again.
