I have been taking a group of current and ex-colleagues to The Cross Guns for 8 years now for our end of term canal walk and meal. This year I was somewhat apprehensive, having read recent less than complimentary reviews. These appeared to be borne out when, on arrival, we were told that we were to be seated in the... More

I have visited this Pub over many years whilst holidaying on the Canal. I was very disappointed and sad with this last visit on the 22nd May and shall not be going again. Their website says they serve food from 12pm until 21.00 everyday and that they are open from 11 am until midnight every night. This is untrue. They... More

This pub used to sell itself as Kevin Spaceys's favourite. Not sure why. The positive thing is it is a great location, overlooking the river, and it is a good 2 mile walk along the canal bank from Bradford on Avon. You have to order food and drinks from the bar, and there is always a long queue, normally takes... More

We called in for lunch, staff friendly enough. However, Box Steam Brewery ale was past its best, cloudy. We were looking forward to the ham and chips, but chips were underdone and cheap processed ham out of a packet. At £25 for a drink each and the ham we felt this represented very poor value. Far nicer places in Bradford... More

I was really disappointed. I really enjoy the Box Steam brewery beers and was looking forward to visiting as part of my barge holiday. It was really poor. I ordered a pint and it was really cloudy. The member of staff said it would clear. It was obvious it wouldn't and didn't, this happened again so she reluctantly pulled me... More

Having booked a table for a midweek lunch the shared starter arrived after half an hour (pub not busy) missing one component which when we queried were told they had run out of. We then had to remind the staff twice for our main course which finally arrived 45 minutes after the starter was cleared. The two burgers finally came!... More
