The White Cross Inn is a small pub with a huge heart. Set in the tiny village of Groeswen overlooking Caerphilly town. It is one of a dying breed of old country pubs, but thanks to the enthusiasm of the local people who are passionate about the place and the a twist of fate that has brought it back to the hands of someone who loves it, The White Cross is creeping back to life. You will always have a warm welcome, a great choice of cask ales and great company.
Enter as strangers leave as friends!
The White Cross has a chequered history which I will one day research, the building dates back centuries (1750) but for the present it is the future that is of interest to everyone..
A pub needs people ..people need a pub!
The cask ales have rocketed with the introduction of The Beerbellies Club and the little blue card..not to mention the ever changing great choice of ales!
The darts and pool teams have survived the years but the cricket team did not, but like a pheonix it has risen from the ashes(we did have to burn the old kit!) and has played regularly throughout the summer. There are cards and dominos on the bar for those quiet moments!
Tuesday nights are certainly not quiet with a regular fun quiz..with the emphasis on the fun!..not for the feint hearted!
Food is an issue apart from pies and chips we do not serve any meals, however we are more than happy for you to bring your own grub to the pub to stave off the hunger. We do of course have crisps and nuts and pickled eggs etc.and we are always open to suggestions for your favorite pub snack!
The back room has been out of action for a long time but will soon have a piano, and hopefully saturday night jamming sessions will quickly follow. It is always available for all kinds of groups, meetings and parties.
We have a wonderfull charity book shelf which recycles everyones old books at 50p each for changing charities..in just a few months we have raised hundreds of pounds. I have no idea where the books come from or where they go the shelf always looks full..but the charity boxes fill very quickly so they are definitely moving!
There are regular Spiritualist evenings which are very enlightening, Beerbellies evenings, occassional karaoke and live music evenings there are noisy evenings and cozy evenings..especially in the winter with the log fire, quiet evenings and busy evenings but one thing we never have is a dull evening the pub is full of Character and Characters and I hope one day you will pop in and join us.
