“Lovely Sunday lunch”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Had one of the nicest Sunday lunches in a long time. The food was hot, fresh & very tasty, I would also recommend the bread & butter pudding (delicious). The staff were very friendly & obviously take pride in their customer service........ & the cutlery sparkled !!! Definately going back very soon.

“Great 50th Birthday Party”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Booked the Cross Keys function room (called the Slaughtered Lamb) for my partners 50th birthday party. It is finished in traditional oak and boasts its own bar and usual amenities. The facilities and catering were fantastic. The staff were extremely helpful and very accommodating to our needs. Everybody had a brilliant time helped along by DJ Billy. Even after the party had concluded we carried on celebrating downstairs in the bar beside the real log fire!!!! Thanks again to everyone for an awesome night at the Cross Keys!

“An unforgettable evening”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

My husband and I had a wedding reception in The Slaughtered Lamb, the Cross Keys' lovely upstairs function room. I wasn't sure what to expect but I couldn't have asked for better service from Jane the owner and the staff working the event (very accommodating). They let us put up all of our decorations in advance and really made us feel like the room was our own (they also put up with our very boisterous dancing!) We ordered the buffet for our guests and were very impressed by the food- particularly the steak and ale pie and lasagna. Both terrific. Lots of compliments from guests. House wine was also nice. Highly recommend their function room service!! Also, beautiful downstairs interior.

“Wonderful Evening”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

The function room was perfect for our son and daughter-in-law's wedding party of 50 family members and friends. The owners and and staff were so helpful and obliging to us and the event was a great success with excellent food, wine and beer. We danced into the evening.
