THE CROSS HOUSE, TEWKESBURY – FINALLY A PUB MRS RM LIKED

Another half an hour through gorgeous west Gloucestershire hills and a fourth (4th) tick of the afternoon in Tewkesbury. Four attractive towns too, none of the usual grim northern cities I subject Mrs RM to. And is she grateful ?

Tewkesbury is gorgeous, isn’t it ?

Come on a day it isn’t flooded is my advice for free.

Loads of little alleys (ginnels ?) leading to tiny churches, and this one leading from the Cross House, our new tick.

I’ve just deleted my copious notes due to (checks notes) drinking beer, so let the photos reveal the glory of this cracker of a micropub.

A micropub says WhatPub, but nothing like any micro I’ve been in. A multi-roomed restoration in the style of similar pubs in Beverley and Canterbury, Mrs RM decided it was “gorgeous” and asked me to convert that into an NBSS score.

Probably a 3.5, as anyone who can make Goff’s White Knight in a handled jug taste palatable deserves your custom.

Shame I’ve deleted my notes, as they probably refer to a conspiratorially whispering couple in the pew opposite, or Mrs RM’s attempt to put a Bass mirror into her new backpack.

Now I’ve lost my notes, I can write whatever I like.

  1. Proper sweary drunken Glocs local that, proper heritage too rather than the bought and bolted on variety. This place was on my list as a pub games blog shoe-in until I retired from flogging dead ‘orses, the skittles table is quality, the Evesham Quoits (careful how you google this) even better if he’s finally found somewhere to position it. Authentic 21st century Bass mirrors are available at tge nearby Antiques Centre too…
