About Us

We are an Independent Kitchen & Bar set in Lymm village. We are passionate about serving food using high quality ingredients. If you choose Pan Fried Scallops or our Homemade Fish and Triple Cooked Chips, we use quality ingredients for every dish. Our Sourdough Pizza’s are made on site from scratch, cooked in our stone floor open fired pizza oven. We use the same ingredients for all our Kids meals, all cooked from fresh.

18 The Cross - Kia Zargaran
We would like to introduce Kia Zargaran, our fantastic new Head Chef. Kia hails from Didsbury, but has taken up residency in our kitchen & the lovely Lymm village. Kia has over 13 years’ experience which he is bringing to your table. His love for cooking emanated from spending many a weekend watching his Nana cook and bake from a front row seat on her kitchen worktop, this is where he discovered his love for food. Although his Nana nearly changed this when she accidentally put salt into the crumble, instead of sugar…
Fast forward to Kia’s more recent years where he has been serving up an array of modern, British gastronomic delights in the award-winning The Clarence, Bury.
Moving on to The Flixton, Urmston, in the more recent years, where he gained an award for ‘Best Fine Dining 2017 Food Porn’!
Kia has brought his talent and flare to Eighteen The Cross. If you have not already tried his specials you are missing out. His dish ‘Pork Three ways’ is a MUST! A confit of pork belly, seared pork fillet, apple puree, apple crisps & popcorn pork.
We are very excited Kia has joined us, we know that he will enhance Eighteen The Cross with his gastronomic dishes to compliment our Mediterranean vibe.
