An outstanding case study of pub protection; local campaign group 'Friends of Haden Cross' picked up a well-deserved Bronze certificate in CAMRA's 'Pub Saving Award' 2017 having been nominated by the local branch. The group has played and continue to play a pivotal role in ensuring the sustainability of the Haden Cross as a much-loved community pub. Attempts to convert the site into a supermarket and, more recently, residential dwellings, have been rejected as a result of well-composed grassroots activism.
An ex-Marston's outlet; the Haden Cross has been given a new lease of life by local father and son, Stan and Karl Gardner. Following a top-to-bottom refurbishment including the installation of a roaring real fire, the pub-cum-restaurant reopened to thankful local punters in November 2017.

There may be small supplements on speciality or rare gins.
There is a diverse food offering which is sure to appeal to customers of all ages - ranging from toasties through to a speciality smokehouse menu. Rotating daily specials offer something a little different whilst children are accommodated for with a menu for minors. Please note and respect that children are welcome only when dining.
