“Are you Open?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Having recently moved into the area, we spotted this lovely looking pub, so we visited on Saturday 5th July at 14:10, and it was closed? Even a phone call prompted no response? No opening hours sign anywhere to be seen, most disappointed so we went on to the Three Legged Cross!

May be worth displaying your opening times? Also get yourselves a website!

“A little gem.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Probably one of the smallest pubs tucked away in the East Dorset countryside. Excellent home made food including their renowned steak and kidney pies.

“Hashers Welcome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

A lovely landlady who accomodated the Hashers well. Good Beer and Food. A must visit for May day when the Morris dancers celebrate around a May Pole and good full English is on the menu at daybreak.

“Give them a try!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

Great food for a very reasonable price. You might just drive by as the pub generally looks quiet, but it really is worth a visit. They have a nice beer garden and the staff and friendly.

“Quirky and excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2013

The Cross Keys Inn is situated between Wimborne and Tricketts Cross just after Holt Heath. This formerly lovely heath has recently unfortunately been urbanized by townies with myriad traffic signs. The Inn itself is tiny but has its own unique atmosphere as a result. The food is home made, good quality and very reasonable. We just wanted a snack - from amongst an extensive range - and the delicious back bacon rolls were only £3 each. We sat in the garden on a sunny lunchtime wondering why we hadn't popped in before. One tip is that the Cross Keys is famous for its May Day celebrations which commence at sunrise.
