Harvington WR11 8PQ

Please leave your details and our team will be in touch. * fields are required


The Golden Cross pub is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Harvington just three miles from the market town of Evesham. Evesham sits between Worcester, Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon all of which are highly populated all year round with tourists. It is a popular village with a good cross section of residents involved in many activities. There is a play group, pre-school and first school, active youth group, Baptist and Anglican churches, sports facilities and clubs, as well as rural businesses and good public transport links to Evesham and Stratford. The Golden Cross is at the centre of the community and is a superb example of a traditional village pub that focuses on freshly sourced food, well-kept real ales alongside, great entertainment and good customer service. Families welcomed and dog friendly.

Pub Layout

On entering the pub, you are greeted with a traditional panelled bar that is well stocked with cask ale, a variety of lagers, premium, esteem and core, an excellent choice of wine and a good range of gins and spirits. The right-hand side of the bar presents itself as a dining area complete with a log fire. This area could be sectioned off for private functions and events. The dining area has French doors that lead out to a good sized outdoor area and stepped garden. This is enclosed for the safety of children and backs on to the car park. This space is great for barbecues and events during the spring/summer and has 6 – 8 garden benches. The left-hand side of the bar is more informal with a darts board, TV and bar tables this could easily be used for more food covers if desired. The good sized, well equipped commercial kitchen is accessed directly from behind the bar as well as from the dining area.

The Golden Cross prides itself on being the heartbeat of the local community. The current tenants have created a positive community feel with numerous community events such a beer festivals and charity events and some fantastic live entertainment that claim to be the UK’s finest. Their monthly foodie evenings have been superbly supported. They have focused on providing a vibrant menu which includes mid-week offers and lunch time specials to attract clientele from further afield. The bar has a wide range of cask and keg and a good selection of wines and spirits. A good rhythm of the week with darts team, quiz nights, games nights, a variety of music and entertainment gives the people of Harvington and surrounding areas a reason to visit and return.
