Reserving Tables at the White Cross

Reservations are always the best way to make sure you have a table, however, aside from the peak times of Friday and Saturday evenings, we will usually have availability for walk-in customers.
We also have a few tables in the bar area and plenty outside that are not reservable online and are available “first come first served”, so even if the reservation system is not showing availability please give us a call or pop along.
Restaurant Bookings
are for dining only and will receive prioritised service.
Bar tables
can be reserved for drinking and / or casual dining, but may be subject to a longer wait in peak times.
Canal tables
We do have 5 tables which can be reserved outside if you wish and another 13 for walk-ins. Aside from super hot Saturday afternoons there is nearly always space available.
All tables will automatically be reserved for 2hrs 15 mins
If you wish to stay longer (or shorter) please email or call us to amend your reservation.
Bookings after 7 pm will have the table for the night.
You will be unable to reserve a table online less than 2 hours before your requested visit time so please give us a call.

Goverment guidelines

Following recent government guidance there are a few things you should be aware of before reserving your table at The White Cross.

• No one should come to the pub if they are exhibiting any of the symptoms of Covid-19 or if they have been told to self-isolate.

• Tables inside the pub must come from no more than 2 households (or “bubbles”). You can only reserve on line for a maximum of 6 people. 

• You will be given a choice of restaurant, bar or outside tables when reserving. Outside tables are also for a maximum of 6 people from any number of households.

• Please wait at the door to be taken to your table where either a server will take your order or you can order via your phone or tablet.

• Everyone in your group is required by the government to leave their name and contact details (phone or email number) which will be held confidentially and only provided to the Government Track and Trace team if required. They will be destroyed after 21 days

• There will be no standing in the pub and you will be asked to stay at your table (other than for visits to the loos) during your stay.

• Reservations will be for 3 hours, but if there are no bookings immediately afterwards you are welcome to stay.

These are temporary government requirements and we appreciate your understanding and support as we all get used to the new ways of working and socialising.

If you are happy with all these points please go ahead and reserve your table above.
