We especially visited The Green Cross Inn as we wanted a fish menu. Everything written online is absolutely true. On first impression the new houses built next door to this very pretty inn appeared overbearing, and the reviews show the inn has had a very difficult time, which we were very sorry to hear about. But please come to this fantastic restaurant! Good parking, prettily illuminated, and most welcoming. A lovely intimate atmosphere. We booked by telephone, were warmly welcomed and seated within minutes. The bar side is very quaint and pretty, the dining room bigger and quieter which suited us also. There are fresh roses and candles on each table. The service is immediate and outstanding.The fish is just delicious! We had oysters to start - beautifully presented fresh and scrumptious. Our main courses were sole in a lovely butter sauce, and king scallops - mouthwatering, melt in the mouth, beautifully presented again. We had home made pineapple sorbet for dessert again unusual and delicious. If we lived nearer we would be back every week. Menu is very varied and unusual - Come and try it. We loved it here.

Been meaning to go here for a while so stopped for Sunday lunch as wanted something that wasn't a roast. The staff are attentive and there is a varied menu and as the quality of fish looked good went for a fish and chips and spaghetti lobster. The fish was definitely fresh but the batter was a bit oily, which spoiled it a bit.

Overall a nice place, but with the bill being £70 for three main courses and a glass of wine each, not sure we'd go back

We arrived late for lunch and had a delicious 3-course meal which meant we were the last people there, but the owner was really accommodating.

A very busy restaurant on the night we dined which led to service being very, very slow. The food however was excellent with the fish courses that we chose being so fresh one could almost taste the sea. Looking forward to going again on a quieter evening. Our friends who dined with us have visited subsequently and found that the service was as good as the food!

We visited for lunch as a group of 9 for lunch. The food was perfect - we had skate wings, sole, swordfish, seafood paella, all of which was delicious. Puddings were great too (eg raspberry roulade, eton mess, pineapple sorbet). We were looked after really well by the staff. Would definitely recommend here!
