The fantastic Mary Cadogan also cooks supper here regularly. View the menus, dates and price.

The Cross can also be hired for other private functions. The premises are fully licensed and as a former public house the configuration of the building lends itself to social gatherings. There is also a courtyard garden to enjoy when the Somerset weather is good.

I hope to be able to welcome you to the award winning The Cross at Croscombe soon.
