The Cross is run by extremely welcoming owners who clearly take a deep personal pride in what they do. It shows in every aspect of this hotel and we sincerely appreciate that. The place feels very 'homey' with a comfy lounge and bedroom with many personal touches. But the food! If you were in London to get this quality and creativity you would need to sell a child into slavery but here, it is very reasonably priced indeed for a truly memorable meal. Being in Scotland I had the grouse that just melted in the mouth with wonderful rich flavour and this after having just enjoyed a lobster ravioli. (My mouth is watering again as I write and recall). Top this with a perfect rasberry soufflé and all the bits (canapés, stunning chocolates with coffee) and statutory Talisker and great wines and I was is heaven. Only downside was being thrashed at dominoes by my wife afterwards but another glass of Talisker helped ease my pain.
Now, The Cross is under relatively new ownership and they are doing an amazing job with tremendous value for money. It is clear too the team in the kitchen are passionate about their work. My feeling is they will need to have a pretty good flow of custom to finance this or...the price has to go up. My motivation in writing in TripAdvisor is to help people who I think really deserve recommendation and with The Cross we really want them to develop their business and do well. It would be hard to beat, anywhere, the meal we had here.
