Knutsford can be a pretentious place with several average restaurants masquerading as good ones. It would also lacks a decent Pub which concentrates on serving a variety of great ales if wasn't for the Cross Keys, which luckily is in the centre of town. Its got a decent sized bar and lounge area unlike other local pubs serving decent beer. Here you don't have to bend double to avoid knocking your head which for an over six footer is an important consideration when merry!
You go here for the beer and a warm wlecome. It has a range of great guest beers and a standard range of real ale which is quite impressive. If I drink in Knutsford I go here because the beer is well looked after and pulled carefully. The clientelle is also friendly and its a good natured place full of locals and visitors alike. It doesn't have a 'Slaughtered Lamb' feeling like a few other places in town as you feel welcome.
The staff are great but they will will tell you if you are acting stupid. So don't! I've never stayed in the hotel as I live localy, but I have had the breakfast which is superb.
