50% off at Golden Cross Inn

Within less than an hour’s drive from the Brecon Beacons, 16 miles from the Welsh border and a stone’s throw from Hereford’s historic city centre, The Golden Cross Inn in Sutton St Nicholas is a charming location to spend an evening.

The traditional English pub sports original features from the Tudor era, contrasted against comfortable modern furnishings. Aside from a cosy bar area offering light bites and a great selection of wines, spirits and of course, Herefordshire cider, the Golden Cross Inn has a superb restaurant. The Head Chef works hard to ensure the dishes created within the pub’s restaurant kitchen are locally sourced, meaning the menu constantly changes and evolves with the seasons.

Regardless of the time of year or the produce available, diners can expect a hearty offering of British gastropub favourites; from the grill comes the 8oz ribeye or sirloin steak, the tangy and temptingly cheesy Hunter’s chicken, the lamb shank in rosemary and mint sauce, and the novel Cock & Bull: a plate of chargrilled steak and chicken strips covered in creamy peppercorn sauce. Vegetarians, children and those with a sweet tooth are all well catered for too.

Time your visit right, and you’ll catch one of the Inn’s many live music performances, or perhaps even a pool or darts tournament. With a busy calendar of events, the Golden Cross has firmly established itself as the community hub of Sutton St Nicholas, with an ever-warm welcome to visitors.

Important Information

Please note: A separate steak menu runs on Wednesdays at The Golden Cross. This menu is excluded from the tastecard discount. Members must order from the a la carte menu.

    I've visited this pub twice in recent times both mid week. on my first visit the food was great and we really enjoyed it. Not a bad word to say and would highly recommend so for that visit 5 stars all the way.

    On our 2nd visit a few weeks later the experience and food was somewhat different. Poor food done badly in complete contrast to the last visit. Had we received the 2nd experience the first time we would not have returned.

    So its 1-1 for now and we will give the benefit of the doubt as we liked the first visit so much. best of 3 then.

    Stars are based on an aggregate of both visits "

  • "We ate at this inn tonight and had a lovely meal. I really can't believe how they manage to offer up such delicious food at half price! I started with the garlic mushrooms which were delightful. The 'Cock and Bull' for mains was just amazing. Slices of chicken and steak served with a peppercorn sauce really did work well. Vast portions of potatoes and veg accompanied the meal and our party of four left very satisfied. The staff were great and we had a lovely meal. Thanks so much, and keep up the good work :) Darren "
