The Cross Hands Hotel is a charming old posting house dating from the 14th century and is popular nowadays with, among others, country lovers, horse racing fans, motor racers, golfers and young couples; and our own dear Queen sought shelter here during a blizzard in 1981.
Those who like a bit of spooky history might like to know that the cellars were once used to house convicted criminals, sentenced to death by 'Bloody' Judge Jeffreys.
The Cross Hands restaurant is relaxed, spacious and situated on two levels, offering a warm atmosphere. Our guests are able to dine from our adventurous and interesting menu. Our chefs prepare food of the highest quality, from a modern well equipped kitchen. Our food has achieved an excellent reputation amongst local and international diners. Come and check out our chef’s daily specials.
The oak beamed Beaufort Bar, full of charm and character, is ideal for sampling one of the range of traditional ales and delicious bar food. Open working fire places add comfort on those winter days and evenings.
Weddings are a specialty at the Cross Hands. The hotel can cater for up to 100 guests, with the beautiful ‘secret’ garden adding the perfect finishing touch.
The Cross Hands offers a 'wedding for a grand' for 50 guests including a 3 course wedding breakfast, a glass of wine and bubbly with the meal, function room hire and evening disco.
