I would like to comment on Rowenas comment . I have been going to the Lea Cross for a few years now and i have to say Ruth and Phil are the most child friendly people i know, what is a problem is when the child/children are not supervised by the parents and allowed to run riot. If someone had spilled hot gravy or soup on your child Rowena what would you have said then??? It is NOT SAFE for a child to be leap frogging round the restaurant, and people who are out for a nice quiet Sunday dinner away from the kids quite frankly do not want to hear or see it. I think you should probably look a little closer to home?
Its a great pub, great food, great couple who run it and my daughter who is 41/2 loves going there.
Highly Recommended for children.

How refreshing!
I am a mother of two young boys and we eat at the Let Cross Tavern whenever we get the chance. My boys understand that when in a public house they are to sit and play quietly at the table, as a pub is essentially an adult environment. I have been at for tavern on occasions that the staff have had to ask parents to ensure their children do not run around, and as a parent I actually find this quite refreshing as I would rather eat my meal without feeling like I'm in a chain playbarn! Shame that can't be said for all parents! Anyway, onto the pub! If you like well prepared, fresh, locally produced homemade food, then this is the place for you. They have a good range of wines and beers including local ales. Sunday lunches are really good quality and value for money and the steaks are to die for! Try it, you won't be disappointed!

Ruth Leaman
In response to Rowena,
My name is Ruth and i run the Lea Cross Tavern with my partner Phil, we have been running the pub for two and a half years and welcome all families and children of all ages. We have always provided a children's menu, highchairs, child friendly drinks and a welcome atmosphere for them. I am replying to Rowena's message on this site, as it upsetting that the person in question is choosing to slander us on the internet rather than complain in person. Rowena has been a customer of ours on many occasions and on the day she bought along her little boy for a meal, she was not charged for his drink, he also did not have a meal although he was age appropriate but instead offered a plate to share with his mother. From the moment they came through the door they were treated with patience, even though the boy was leap-frogging up and down the dining room. However as other tables started filling up and customers were putting down their knives and forks in frustration, the patience wore thin and Rowena was told to take charge of her child instead of being on her mobile phone throughout the ordeal. I completely understand that sometimes it is difficult to take young children out for lunch, but there has to be a certain level of discipline on the parent responsible rather than leaving it to management of the premises they are visiting. I of course would like to make amends, but as a final note there are always two sides of the story and it is very sad that this discussion is not in person. Kind regards Ruth.

a very long wait
great food but we had to wait one and a half hours, the place had far too many people for them to cope with so service went out the window and nobody showed any common courtesy to offer an apology or any form of reduction,
very very disapointing!!!!!
