Rang through to book, they played “let me see, um, Yes”...

Got there 5:30, only people in!

Both had starters & mains! No real need! Portions fine!

Couldn’t finish main course!

Wine list good but a bit, a bit pricey for tea time?

Young lass was great! Warm, friendly without being OTT!

Bit expensive for a “can’t be @rsed cooking” meal?

This historic pub had been closed for a while, so it was particularly nice to see it had come back to life.
The original pub side, with its separate rooms, is back and still a place where you can go for a pint or two without any pressure to eat anything.
The restaurant is a separate section where there is table service.
The menu is a bit more than standard pub grub but stops short of being pretentious.
A starter of celeriac soup, served with croutons and bread stick was fine. Main course of lamb rump was particularly good - rare, as requested, but still very tender. Possibly a bit more vegetable accompaniement would have been nice but perhaps I am being greedy.
Sticky toffee pudding dessert was also fine with a good covering of toffee sauce. The vanilla ice cream that was supposed to be with it had gone missing but it was not really essential. All washed down with good, local beer.
Service is friendly and attentive and you can get a table without a reservation.
My visit was a Good Friday evening and it had plenty of custom. Long may it prosper.

Great place after its recent renovation and new owners. Well done... Great atmosphere and even better food. Fussy meat eater and even fussier vegetarian diners and lots to choose from. Both cleared our plates and oredered desserts.. again not surprising they were stunning. Well done to the staff .. they are so helpful. We will be back soon. Highly recommended for all.. a little gem.

We booked the private dining room for 20 people on our party night. The room was perfect for our group, and we all enjoyed a wide range of choices off the menu. With our own personal waiter the drinks flowed and the food was served without any delay. Everyone commented on the quality of the food and the friendly staff all contributed to a most memorable evening. I have read some negative comments before our visit, but can confidently dismiss them. This venue will go from strength to strength.

This was our visit to the Cross Guns since its complete refurbishment and re-invention. The first thing to to say is how pleasing it is to see a Village Pub springing in to life, with so many sadly closing throughout the country.
It is located on the outskirts of Egerton on the A666 heading north towards Darwen in a beautiful rural moorland setting. There is plenty of well maintained parking just across the road, it is a very imaginative approach as during the daytime it can be used as parking for the local primary school.
The building has been carefully renovated on the exterior with an attractive aspect and very tastefully decorated. We attended on Good Friday as part of a group of 12, and the place was buzzing, word has obviously got round. There is plenty of space for pre-dining drinks, and restaurant dining on both the ground and first floor. I would recommend that you book!
Although the place was busy, the staff were very amenable and attentive. Excellent range of meals on the Card we which would suit most tastes. Being Good Friday I chose a starter of Haddock and Leek Fishcake topped with a delicious Poached Egg, the main coarse of Cod Loin was delicious. The food arrived promptly, was very well presented and hot, so no complaints there then.
Premises were well furnished and clean and the menu is very reasonably priced for the good quality of the food. Almost forgot to mention the dessert course Pear and Stem Ginger Crumble with Custard, outstanding in all aspects a portion large enough to sink a battleship, served piping hot, as good as I have ever had in any restaurant!
Worked out at about £30 a head with drinks , excellent value.
If it keeps this standard, it has got itself some new regular customers.
