The Cross Inn and Old Barn Bar are Ness landmarks on the beautiful Isle of Lewis, having been enjoyed as a local community hub for decades. The Cross Inn was the first establishment outside of Stornoway to be granted a license for food with drinks, and was previously the local post office, butcher, shop and even a garage!
Cross Inn is the main house which has bed and breakfast and a restaurant with licensed bar. Just 4 miles from the Butt of Lewis, it is the perfect base to explore Ness, finish the Hebridean Way or catch a bite to eat and drink.
The Old Barn Bar is our public bar behind Cross Inn. It is an historic crofters barn that was converted into a pub with a large beer garden. The pub is dog and muddy boot friendly.
We host various events from pub quizzes to Ceildhs and can be booked for private functions. Keep an eye on our facebook page for what's happening next!
