Blue Scrumpy left this review about Ye Olde Cross Inn

The Olde Cross was still closed the last time I tried to visit in spring 2019. But just over 18 months on and I was back to find it open.

The pub is situated in a bit of a dip overlooking the village green. The interior is bright and airy, with many of the tables reserved on our Saturday afternoon visit. But we found the space we needed.

I was suitably impressed by the number of real ales in this community-owned pub. Timothy Taylor Landlord is the regular ale and there is normally a beer from Firebrick. On this occasion, this was their Pagan Queen. In addition, there were 3 guest beers - Fyne Jarl, Anarchy X-Ray Eyes & BoJo's Brewhouse Tier 2. My only criticism would be the lack of a dark ale.

As I normally try to do, I'd paid for our drinks when we received them. So, it was a bit perturbing to be approached to pay (again) as we left. There appeared to have been a communication breakdown!
