The restaurant lacked atmosphere as there were only nine diners. Food was fine, nothing special but I did feel that charging £6 for a glass of apple juice was excessive. Would I dine there again....sadly no..

It was really lovely, the food was excellent, great quality and good sized portions. Service was fantastic too, pretty quick and the waiting staff were very friendly. We had two babies with us and were made to feel very welcome (not the case everywhere!) so we really appreciated that too. Will definitely be back.

We had my sisters 50th birthday meal there for the whole family, we had a nice relaxing meal, service was great and we were not rushed. Food was very good, this is a great place to come out for a meal and spend as long as you like at the table. They have a great selection of Gin's, next time Ill be trying a few or more

This was our first time at The Cross Keys and we were extremely impressed with our lunch. My only negative comment is my glass of lime/soda which was flat. A slice of lemon would have been nice too. Many thanks Lindsey Herbert

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend, we came in for a 50th anniversary lunch and we had a lovely experience. they even allowed us to bring in our own cake and served it for us instead of pudding. Thank you and we will be back.

It all appeared very efficient and clinical. The food was good, freshly cooked with a short wait time. Staff could have been more friendly, this would add to the atmosphere and enhance the dining experience.

Always very happy with everything at The Cross Keys. So good to have an excellent village pub. My husband adds that he would like to see more ales on tap!
