Stockcross is a village in Berkshire, England. The village lies to the west of Newbury in the civil parish of Speen and the district of West Berkshire. Close to the cross-road in the middle of the village were the stocks hence the name Stock-Cross, which were removed in the early 1980s.
Stockcross has a small shop/post office/coffee shop which is also a Bed and breakfast. Sutton Hall is the busy village hall, hosting regular events from jumble sales to Christmas pantos to village get-togethers. It has a small Christian school.
Places of worship
It is the site of a brick-built church, St John's, erected and endowed by the vicar, the Rev. H. W. Majendie in 1839.
Hotel and pubs
'The Vineyard' is a 5 star hotel on the edge of the village that has a spa and restaurant. The restaurant previously held two Michelin stars, although these were removed when Executive Chef John Campbell left for Dorchester's Coworth Park. Daniel Galmiche is now Head Chef. The Vineyard was described as "a palace of naffness" by restaurant critic Michael Winner.
