The sensitive re-decoration and re-furnishing of the Cross Keys has turned the saloon bar into a small restaurant whilst retaining the public or Village bar with a choice of cask ales. The menu is limited - wisely so, given the small number of tables. Clearly, the Cross Keys now wants to attract the more affluent and is stylish with friendly hosts. But there is a mis-match between the prices and the substance of what you get - particularly on the dessert front where the portions are miniscule in a way that makes the pricing exhorbitant. Menu descriptions are irritating and attempt to conceal the fact that a tenner will get you a very small portion of mash with three local sausages. It is worth a visit and a refreshing improvement, but perhaps a simpler changing blackboard menu would be more appropriate.
