This being the only pub in walking distance of my hotel, I was disappointed to find it closed and boarded up. Nasty walk through the industrial and heavy logistics area too. Back to the hotel for a crummy fired something or other then.

If you go this place you need to eat the mixed grills. Great value for money and great portion size results in this pub getting 5**

This pub is about 20 minutes from T5 and is a great intro to the UK for those you may be connecting with while they wait for connections. Good choice of food and drink and great atmosphere. Free parking so don't rack up the T5 car park bill, come out here and spend it on something more worthwhile

A cosy pub with lovely décor & a decent food menu. Located within walking distance from the T5 Travelodge, so a good option for food if you are a guest there.

It is always disappointing when you visit a pub only to find the most exciting part of the experience is the internal decoration of the building. The Golden Cross at Colnbrook is located near Heathrow airport; we travelled to the pub in hope of improvement in the quality of the food from our previous visit many months ago. It used... More

I have visited the Golden Cross on many occasions. This visit we decided to eat there too. We got a seat by the fire, it wasn't lit but still cosy. They have a resident cat now and that made my day. Jo the owner is so friendly and welcoming. We had some wine and then a meal. The food in... More

Visited a number of times and Lawrence the bar man is always there to welcome us with his warm vivacious smile. We have treated ourselves to the breakfast which literally left us both in a food coma - so much food ! Great hangover cure ! Tried a number of the quick bites off the main menu too. Bring the...

Been here a few times while travelling for work. The menu is very outdated. I ordered the flatbread with chicken, and what I got was two small chicken breasts that felt like they were warmed in the microwave on top of baby leaf lettuce and cheese smothered in bbq sauce on top of a tortilla wrap (not a flatbread). The... More

This pub/restaurant has been established for many years. However, for some time now it has been allowed to deteriorate somewhat....until that is, a new landlord/manager took over approximately 9 months ago. He, James and his staff have turned it around into a first class venue, especially the menu. Unfortunately, the owner of the property, Greene King, have decided to sell... More
