“Great Food”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

The food was superb, we ate here on speck as we passed it on the road junction and we were not disappointed.

Met by a friendly informative and helpful barman. We ate well, the food was nicely cooked, lots of variety in the menu, very competitively priced and served promptly and hot by more friendly staff.

The locals were great and we had to tear ourselves away as we had had a very long day, but we could have chatted to them all night and gone back for more.

Lovely place would happily recommend it to all.

Really cant understand how it got a terrible review below.........

“Dog Friendly Pub!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Called in at The Cross Guns on the way home from North Wales, having seen that it was dog friendly. The pub has recently had a change of management, and we found the couple running it very friendly and engaging. Food is served all day until 9 PM, our meals were very good and excellent value for money, would highly recommend this place for travelers along the A483!

“never had a good meal here”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I dont know if it has changed recently but under two different owners I have had really awful meals. Sunday lunch especially bad even if you go early. Overcooked meat, damp potatoes, hard as a rock peas and absolutely no imagination.

Hi all T.A visitors my name is Alison, myself and my Partner Iain (both chefs) have recently taken over at the Cross Guns on 25th March 2013. We would like to encourage all customers both potential and previous to come and give the 'Guns' a try. You will get a friendly welcome and a great value for money meal with portions to suit most appetites... offer evenings 4 nights per week and we do a fab Sunday Roast!! Why not give us a call on 01691 839631 and give us a try!

“Brilliant food in a village setting”
Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

I eat here several times a year and the food has always been well cooked and presented. The portion sizes for me are too big but for most people they offer good size portions . The veg are hone cooked and the fish dishes are exceptional .

For family or business lunches this is a great place. Best to book though!!
