The Garden and Patio are no more

Ex Garden and Patio

This is the view of what was the Cross Inn beer garden and patio :(

A very sad sight. I prefer to remember the music festivals, barn dances and litter pick ups.  Here are a couple of pictures from happier days.

The Cross Inn has been sold

  • Posted on: 21 December 2015

We've been told by the estate agents that the pub has been sold.  Contracts were exchanged on Tuesday 15th December and completion is at the end of January. We believe the sale is for the pub and garden, but don't have any more definite information.  There is lots of speculation but precious few facts, though I'm sure we will discover more over time.

Christmas Eve Pop Up Pub in Great Bromley Village Hall

'Twas the night before Christmas.  We'll all hopefully be ready for the next day.  So what better way to relax after all that preparation.  A Pop Up Pub in Great Bromley Village Hall.  We've got a licence, we'll have Sticklegs Beers, wine, soft drinks and there may even be mince pies and sausage rolls.

Developments on the Developments

All change.

The "Bromley Cross Consultation Document" I mentioned in my last post has been withdrawn because one of the landowners does not want to proceed on the group proposal and wishes to undertake their own course of action". See

So we're talking to the agents to try and get an outline agreement on our purchase for just the pub.  More news when we have it.

Hi everyone
The good news is that the Cross Inn has NOT been bought by developers. We've been talking to the agents, Nicholas Percival, who have told us there have been no acceptable offers to date. But..

Our 1st Pop Up Pub!

  • Posted on: 13 November 2015

Our first pop up pub is tomorrow night, Saturday 14th November, at Forge Cottage opposite the Cross Inn.  If you haven't got tickets, you can still turn up on the night for a drink at our licensed bar and even a hot dog (if the people with tickets haven't eaten the lot). I'm sure we'll squeeze you in, 7:00 till 11:00. See you then I hope.


Thank you Plunkett Foundation for our 1st Grant

More good news!

Save the Bromley Cross has received our first grant, for our work to save the Cross Inn, Great Bromley as a village pub and amenity.  The Plunkett Foundation has awarded us a bursary of £2000.  This has already funded the cost of setting up and registering our new company, The Great Bromley Cross Pub Community Benefit Society Limited, and will pay for plenty of our other initial start up costs including printing our share prospectus, which we plan to publish soon.
