About The Cross Keys
The Cross Keys Country Pub & Kitchen is a family run restaurant/bar set in the quiet characteristic village of Wood End, Bedford – just a few minutes away from Kempston.
We are passionate about our high quality food & drink and most importantly our customers. Pop in and see us soon!
We are always happily satisfied with our visits to the Cross Keys restaurant. Good food, Friendly and efficient service. Value for money
We were given a booth, which I’d asked for, which gave me and my friends a lovely cosy atmosphere. The food was delicious - I love the idea of the small ‘while you wait’ bits and we all chose them as starters so we could go to town on the main course! The range of gin is astounding. A lovely evening. Highly recommended.
The staff were lovely and the food was nice. My only negative is that although the food was nice its a little bit expensive especially for a week night.
Excellent as usual
The usual lovely food and service excellent
My wife and I had a lovely meal on Sunday afternoon. The food was lovely, service excellent and the restaurant area is very nice. They only dropped one star on the food and drink because it would be great if they could offer a guest ale rather than just Eagle. That said, it was a good pint. We will definitely be back. It`s a shame Kempston doesn`t have such a nice pub/restaurant for roast dinners. An excellent meal. Thank you. Ken
First class venue for a party. Thank you very much
Food always great. Nicely presented and cooked to perfection. Perhaps slightly larger portions? Just slightly. Staff friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend to others.
We were a group of 10 who do our best to have an annual reunion after first meeting at college back in 1962! We're always looking for a welcoming pub/restaurant that serves excellent food and ale. We certainly found that at the Cross Keys and, as I'm sure you're aware, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening with you. Thank you. Thank you too for the use of your courtesy mini bus to take us to and from our hotel - a real bonus. One small quibble. My wife & I chose your artisan bread and olive oil dips to share 'while we waited'. The bread was excellent but the oil used for the dips was of poor quality. A great pity as it did not reflect the quality of the rest of our meal. Kind regards, Rob Turner
We spend a lot of time eating eating out and we like to try different restaurants in the MK and Bedford area. This was our first visit to The Cross Keys on Sunday and we were very impressed with the food and the service. Our waitress was professional but friendly and recommended the chocolate brownie pudding which was gorgeous :). We will definitely come back and I've already recommended you to my work colleagues and friends.
Great food and service always a friendly welcome

We popped in for early dinner after a graduation ceremony at the OU. The staff were fantastic - friendly, joking around with us, and made the whole experience perfect. The food was incredible - great chef! Would highly recommend, and looking forward to returning soon.
Had a lovely Sunday lunch with family. It was friendly and efficient service. Thank you
Very enjoyable bottomless lunch, keeps getting better every time, our friends has a great time and slept all afternoon after the lunch.
You did us proud for my son's 8th birthday and large family x14 visit. Delicious roast and puds - lovely bright room. Staff were really attentive and ran around looking after us all. Even the mother in law was impressed (and that says something!!!)
Great! Organised for friends birthday! Bedford’s secret gem!
Over the past few months I have visited The Cross keys quite a few times and have found the food to be of the highest quality every visit.The service extremely good and excellent choices on the menu.
