Stockton Cross Inn.jpg (9568 bytes) The Stockton Cross Inn. We had a great lunch with very enjoyable food at this beautifully kept black-and-white timbered pub. The long heavily beamed bar's old-fashioned feel is perhaps at its best on a cold winter's day, when it's really snug at the top end: a handsome antique settle facing an old black kitchen range, and old leather chairs and brocaded stools by the huge log fire in the broad stone fireplace. There's a woodburning stove at the far end too (which the landlord stoked up for us), with heavy cast-iron-framed tables and sturdy dining chairs; there are more tables and chairs up a step in a small no-smoking side area. Old-time prints, a couple of epees on one beam and lots of copper and brass complete the picture.
