Will Larter left this review about The Crossing

A large mock-tudor pub which has undergone a radical rearrangement of internal walls, if the positioning of fireplaces is anything to go by. The large bar counter faces one of these, which contains not a fire, not even a flame effect gas imitation, but a video screen with a moving picture of a fire. Good grief. There are nine hand pumps on the bar, two with real ciders and the remainder real ales (see photos). Although my half of White Rat was in good condition, it was not to my taste. Added to which there was a smell of fried food - not associated with the beer, I hasten to add, but its presence certainly didn't help my appreciation of it.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Crossing

This pub was on the verge of closure several years ago. The pub was totally revived with a lot of help from the Licensee of the Exeter Arms and Silk Mill Derby, who totally redesigned the interior.
The pub was also named The Crossing after a 1961 LS Lowry painting, The Level Crossing, Burton on Trent, where this two storey pub is painted in the scene.
The interior of this large corner pub consists of an L shaped room, with a dining room towards the rear. Original Parquet floor and an open fire featured in the main bar area. The bar counter was oak, and finished in a dark stain. The bar front had been painted in a dark green distressed paint effect.
Another feature in here and a popular seating area, was a mock Regency enclosed snug, which was wallpapered and featured some antique gilt and upholstered chairs. This room also had some palm plants and red velvet drapes.
Nine handpulls on the bar, seven in use on our visit, with a choice of seven different ales. I spotted the Black Hole Brewery Supernova, so I went for that. The Dancing Duck Ay Up was their regular, there were also two ciders on. An excellent pub this one, with friendly staff and a good atmosphere. It was also good to see the younger crowd in here drinking pints of ale.
