Welcome to Green Cross Inn

Unpretentious honest deliciously fresh food, aptly described prepared and cooked on our premises, come and see for yourself.

Rumours are we are selling, the truth is we are not, and no we are not closing either, there are some muck spreaders out there or just careless whispers, it doesn't matter

The Green Cross Inn is a Freehold Seafood Pub Restaurant owned and run by Lou  and his close family Andrea & Giuseppe. Steve and his team take care of customers at the front of house, whilst Lou Eleuterio Lizzi a professionally trained Italian Chef, with a huge passion for good food and 44yrs catering experience and his team create delicious delicacies, from fish pies, fishcakes, mussels cataplana to Lobster Thermidor, Coquilles St. Jacques au gratin, salt baked whole fish and more.

Caroline very sadly passed away on the 25th January, hugely missed, irreplaceable, we are still in deep shock, suffered from poor health since early May 2016 and was taken care of by the caring staff of the NHS, although not 100% she was strong willed and determined, her health deteriorated when we came back from France early January, we are not sure if something went amiss as soon as we have all the right information we will be asking what went on, the setback has not deterred the rest of the team to continue with the hard work to provide our loyal and valued customers with the level and quality of service they deserve.

We thank you for your support, "good food" will always prevail.

Located just outside West of Goudhurst adjacent to the new under construction Market Place, a property development of seven luxurious modern properties .
