The Crosshills Tavern sits facing Hemsworth’s main road junction, in the historic heart of the town, close to the centuries-old parish church. The public house was so named in 2001–2, after a brief spell as Whispers Nitespot.

A photograph taken in c1905 shows ‘the comparatively new Blue Bell’ public house.
