Food below standard, service ok. A tea spoon of Asian slaw is not an adequate serving, burger buns dry, kids meals poor, steak badly cooked.More

We didn’t book but popped in on the off chance we could be seated. The pub was half empty so they were quick to accommodate. They did say they had a table of 11 so there would be a 25 minute wait. 1 hour 10...More

After a long hot day travelling to London and back with my visiting inlaws we went to the Cross Keys, we had a lovely meal in the new extension with good service. This Pub/Restaurant has been turned around completely by the new landlords from what...More

The menu was inaccurate, for example the ‘brioche’ burger with onion chutney was a plain crumbling roll with Branston pickle, we asked where the brioche had got to and the barman said the buns given to us were from yesterday’s BBQ. Don’t mind these changes...More
