Took a B&B weekend there first week in November this year (2016) and arriving after dark we were taken to our room/apartment which was not great but not bad either. 5 out of 10. Decided to have food in the pub that evening as finding alternative in the dark wasn't that easy. That was our worst mistake! My partner took...

I've visited this pub many times as its in a great location and perfect for a weekend day out. There is a nice walk you can do along the canal from Freshford to Bradford on Avon and this pub is the perfect midway pint stop! The pub itself is lovely and old fashioned, with lots of character and charm. There...

Will not be visiting again. Online menu has not been updated and chef very unwilling to accommodate special diet requirements. Staff abrupt and unhelpful, seemingly not to have any idea of how to liaise with paying customers. The misrepresentation of the online menu made it difficult. Such a pity because the pub is in a pretty location. The food that...

The only good thing I can say about this pub is it's set in a beautiful location by the river. I have been here a few times with friends and every time there seems to be something wrong with the place, whether it's bad food, unclean dirty cutlery/cups and some rude unfriendly staff.

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...

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...
