Pub description:

Union Cross, Halifax 15 Old Market. Originally called The Crosse Inn because it stood opposite the old market cross. Recorded in 1535, this is the oldest inn in Halifax and stands in Old Market on the site of the old town market. It had one of the largest cock fighting rings in the district, and this continued in an ups...tairs room long after the sport had been banned. Heywood writes of a great cocking at the inn on 31st May 1680, when the inn was kept by Widow Mitchell. Around 1557, it was owned by Richard Lister. In 1680, Heywood recorded ... they drank all night and were so high in swearing, ranting at the Crosse that they were heard far in the town. Lord Eglington, a Scotch Lord, stood on horseback at T.C door, swearing, ranting, calling for sack, making people drink, 100 were flocking about them, then rid desperately along the Corn-market and light at Crosse, stayd most of the week men went home with heavy heads and empty purses In 1735, it had a bowling green.

On 10-8-2011 nickibr said : "Had a family meal on 8/08/2011 we had previously had a Sunday lunch there couple of weeks before and really enjoyed it however on the said date I was very disappointed on the standard of food, one of the meals we ordered was a chicken korma, the chicken korma sauce had shreds of chicken and was very watery, no chicken pieces it was more like curry sauce! Another meal was sheperds pie in a Yorkshire pudding it was very tasteless and looked watery, it was like it had been warmed up in the microwave, I rung the following day and left contact details for them to contact me but haven't heard anything since... Very disappointed. Will not be returning."
