The Cross Hands is a popular Meet & Eat pub and although on a main road, is a community pub which attracts people from all ages.

The customer profile is varied and is frequented by seniors, couples, families and lots of young people. The sport is a big feature at this pub and can be viewed in either of the two bars, with the one bar being more prominent for delivering sport for viewing or playing. A skittle alley which is a hidden gem is a big feature of the pub and along with pool and darts is a great place for locals to come and enjoy themselves.
