Popped in here en route to visit friends a couple of days previously & were impressed with the transformation since an earlier visit some months ago so much so we decided to return & have lunch which turned out to be a very good move indeed! There were a quite few tables taken & a nice relaxing atmosphere & we... More

Went last night (Saturday) to try this local pub, Although the pub was quite quiet, we had a table by the log burner. Had quick and polite service, and order Cod and Chips. Came quickly, and excellent quality. Will definitely go back, and would thoroughly recommend the pub for the fish and chips!

We popped into this pub on a cold wet day. We were made welcome, our food came quickly and was very good. I had a warm brie and cranberry sandwich, which was good but simply enormous. Not bad at all.

Visited last night and ordered steak for the Mrs and Lasagne for myself. The steak was very chewy and she could not eat it, we told them straight away and although they offered a refund or another one cooked it left me eating alone with the wife looking on. The Lasagne was very dry. Not a place we will be... More

hi UKPETE39, thanks for taking the time to leave a review and sorry the steak wasn't to you wife's standards, however I'm glad the staff followed the correct protocol and offered to replace it for her. I have photo's of the steak as obviously it is a piece of meat from a living animal so I have very little control... More

Visited the Stockton Cross over the weekend. The food was slow and certainly not worth the wait or the money. Not very welcoming. We won't be going back.

Hi JIMERICA1959, Apologies for the delay in replying we don;t look at trip advisor very often as it's very manipulated and of the hundreds of people we serve every week only a very small amount ever leave a review and we don't really go by it. Either way, what was actually the problem as you have neglected to state that... More

Ordered ham with flat bread, a BLT and a Brie with Cranberry. The barmaid was very helpful. and courteous. Full marks there. However the food was practically inedible. The BLT bacon was hardly cooked. The presentation of the ham with flatbread was beyond belief. The brie came with half a jar of cranberry poured over the granary bread. Really if... More

Hi Peter, Thanks for your review and apologies if our food didn't meet your obviously higher standards than we cater for. Could I ask why you didn't tell us why you weren't happy with your meal whilst you were here rather than tell the bar maid once during the check back and again when paying that everything was fine? If... More

I last visited this lovely old fashioned pub in October 2015, the food, drinks and service were significantly better. We visited our family in Tenbury recently and remembered how pleasant out last outing at this pub was. We FIRST went on a Sunday night at 7pm hoping to get a lovely roast dinner but unfortunately we were very disappointed that... More

The Stockton Cross Inn is a 16th century black and white pub in Kimbolton. Here at The Stockton Cross we are passionate about great tasting seasonal 'pub grub' and we aim to source our produce as locally as we can. We are open 11am-11pm every day and serve food from 12 - 8 Tuesday to Saturday and Sunday roasts 12 - 4. We serve local cask ales & local cider and our wines are sourced from Tanners. We also use these Herefordshire made ales and ciders in many of our dishes. We have a large beer garden at the face of the pub and an ample carpark at the rear.
