We aim to make everyone feel welcome, whatever their preferences. Our seasonal menu includes vegetarian and vegan options and we cater for all dietary requirements.

We are open all day *Tuesday through to Sunday, and always have something to eat on offer but to avoid disappointment please note our key timings: Tuesday-Saturday: Breakfast is served from 9am - 11am, Lunch from 12 mid-day to 2.30pm, then Dinner (including our new Children’s Menu) from 5.30pm with last orders by 9pm. On Sundays we serve Brunch from 9am until 11am and then a Roast Lunch from 12.00 midday until last orders at 3pm. In between those times we offer our famous sausage rolls, scotch eggs, olives, pastries and cakes (subject to availability) as well as a full bar offering, non-alcoholic drinks, smoothies and hot drinks.

Delicious food. Covid restrictions meant we needed to sit outside on a cold, wet & windy day but we were under a gazebo so we were still able to go ahead with our booking.

The Cross Keys courtyard was a great place for lunch - sheltered from the very windy weather and with the fire burning. The food was excellent from steak to fish and chips and the fantastic sandwich of the day (fish finger). Very COVID secure and excellent service topped off a great lunch.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at the Cross Keys . The waiting staff were so helpful and considerate.
Our lunch was Haddock and Chips simple but and cooked to perfection! We will certainly be returning.
The outside space was neat and cosy . They provided blankets if you needed them .
Well done to them all working on Thursday April 29th .

All four of us thought the food was excellent. Limited choice , understandably given current circumstances. Staff were lovely. And ambience fine given it was outside and a tad chilly. We will be back.

Sat in the lovely, private, covered terrace at the back of the pub. Excellent service and the food was really good, including perfectly cooked fish and chips.

Delicious food and fantastic service. My first post lockdown pint and it was chilled to perfection. We’re already thinking about going back again this week!
