Today was a special day for me and Mom it was the laying of my fathers ashes and his 75th birthday .Once this was done I took my mother to the Cross Keys Hotel and Bar in Saffron Walden .
It has recently had a refurb to a high standard , we were greeted very quickly by the floor manager in a very polite and friendly way and shown to our table .
We had the three course set menu at little over £15 per head .
I can honestly say it was one of the nicest and most relaxed places for a lunch I have been to in a long time and the food first class .
We had grilled sardines on toast for the starter each and the beef and ale pie with new potatoes with perfectly cooked vegetables and drinks which all came to a reasonable £77 .
Will I go again yes I will - would I recommend it Yes !
