Booked for one night whilst sightseeing in the area with a friend. The pretty village took no finding - few minutes from the A1 but seemed like a million miles away. On arrival we were given a lovely warm welcome and shown to the Newton cottage which was situated in the car park - just a hop, skip and jump away from the pub door. The room had two extremely comfortable single beds, a refreshment table, flat screen tv and plenty of storage space. The modern bathroom was massive, decorated beautifully and it was a pleasure to shower in lovely hot water.
We ate in the restaurant at night and the food was excellent. Harold [the owner] is a brilliant chef who takes great pride in his ability to please the customers and use locally sourced ingredients where possible. He created me a chicken curry [not on the menu] from scratch and it was superb. My friend was also extremely pleased with her choice - 'delicious' were her words. The freshly cooked breakfast was also delicious.
Cannot recommend the Cross Swords Inn enough. Do not just take my word for it, try a meal at least if you are in the area - you will not be disappointed.
