The Cross Hands of Alveston
Pub located at the staggered crossroads of Vattingstone Lane, The Down, Down Road and Strode Common. A representation of a real ale barrel is fixed to a corner of the pub at upstairs level.
The pub has a purpose-built floodlit petanque area, used by the South Gloucestershire Petanque League which run matches from April-September. Petanque is played with metal boules. Each player has two boules, which are thrown with the aim of landing as near to the jack as possible.
