Following an extensive refurbishment, The Cross Guns Inn based in the village of Egerton, will open its doors for the first time this week.  Tipped to be Greater Manchester’s newest hot spot, the pub will boast a brand-new art deco cocktail lounge, completely overhauled outdoor drinking and dining area as well as a 60-cover private function space. Following an extensive investment, The Cross Guns Inn will capture that familiar country pub vibe whilst bringing a touch of luxury through a delicately crafted menu and stunning interior. 

With roots dating back to 1770, The Cross Guns Inn has been serving the village of Egerton for over 250 years; now with a brand-new boss taking the reins and budding young chef at the helm of the kitchen, this local haunt is set to become the place for drinking, dining and socialising with friends.

Revamped from floor to ceiling, the all new Cross Guns Inn combines a classic country pub aesthetic with stunning art-deco finishes to create a familiar yet luxurious atmosphere for locals and newbies alike.  After restoring the wooden panelling and grand fireplaces and installing a brand new 15ft bar in the cocktail lounge, the venue really embodies that of a ‘destination location’. From al fresco brunch to cosy Sunday lunch, cocktails with a touch of class to post-dinner drinks and dancing in the lounge; The Cross Guns Inn has something for every occasion. 

Headed up by industry veteran Jon Peek, the new-look Cross Guns Inn has undergone an extensive renovation project over the last 18 months. With over 15 years of top-end experience, including most recently as manager at Marco Pierre White’s luxury hotel, The Rudloe Arms, Jon brings together a brand-new team, creating 50 new jobs. 

Bringing his experience working within a Michelin Star kitchen, the appointment of Head Chef, Dan Sandilands-Watson is an exciting prospect for Jon and the team.  As his inaugural head chef role, Dan aims to showcase his flair for fine dining and passion for fresh produce through the menu at The Cross Guns Inn. Carefully crafting a menu centred around dishes that preserve the pub familiarity we all know and love, yet taking them to new heights by using only the highest quality ingredients, the menu is sure to serve up something for everyone. 

Commenting on the opening of The Cross Guns Inn, Manager Jon says: 

“Pubs to me are all about community, and our ethos at The Cross Guns Inn is all about creating that experience for everyone. Whether it’s an intimate celebration, a big birthday blowout or a quiet drink afterwork, we want everyone to feel like they belong at The Cross Guns. 

“I am so excited to finally open our doors and showcase what we have to offer. It’s all been going on behind the scenes, and we’ve been working around the clock to create something special. From the cocktails and the food to the interior and the décor, we’ve really wanted to create a space that Egerton and beyond will be proud of!”
