What the licensee says

The Cross Guns is a stunning 16th century Inn full of historic character with original beams & low ceilings. Located in the idyllic & tranquil village of Avoncliff, nestled on the canal towpath between Bath and Bradford on Avon; the Cross Guns boasts a breath-taking setting with panoramic views of the river, the aqueduct and weir. The large decked and terraced garden set on the river bank is a perfect location on sunny days and is a popular destination for walkers, cyclists, boaters, canoeists, photographers and wildlife enthusiasts. Dogs welcome. Open 7 days a week, serving home cooked food everyday using seasonal & local produce where possible. Open for breakfast daily. Vegetarian and vegan dishes feature on the menu and a delicious roast is served on Sundays. Sumptuous feasts are cooked over open fire from the outdoor kitchen on the first Sunday of every month.
