“The Best of all our Local pubs.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

Have eaten here several times and feel we are so lucky to have something of this calibre on our doorstep, a lot of other places in the area could learn a thing or two from this place. Fabulous food served in a fabulous, though, relaxed, atmosphere and good value for money, family friendly and the table is yours for the night. Though you need to book well in advance to avoid dissapointment.

“Outstanding meals, very friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

We ate at the Cross Keys after a day of hard exercise in the Wye Valley and the meals were exactly what we needed. From platters of sizzling steaks, to a battered fish so big it didn't fit in the fryer, the meal were enormous if nothing else. But on top of that they were very tasty, served with plenty of sides, and the service as great. My top tip would be to skip starters if you want any chance of attacking one of the monumental puddings!
We were a large group (12 adults) we were seated in the skittle alley in the back of the restaurant which was perfect - it allowed us to be as noisy as we liked, and we were able to enjoy a game of skittles when we finished our meal.
Could not recommend this pub more highly. Note - can be walked to from YHA Welsh Bicknor, but it took our lads about 50 mins.

“Great pub, great food, friendly people.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012

Camping nearby so went twice in 3 days and it was excellent both times. Very busy little pub with a friendly reception from all the staff. The food was fantastic with an extensive specials menu to suit everyone, hugely generous portions and all very reasonably priced. Would definitely go back if in the area again.

“Great food but improve on the service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2012

It is highly recommended to book as the night we were there it was absolutely full. Just as well we booked.We were taken to our table and left to our own devices. When the waitress came to take our order we advised that we had not seen the menu's yet. These were brought to us and then we were completely forgotton about. We had to go to the bar to ask for service. Our food was brought out very swiftly after that. The cod and chips was definately one of the biggest I have every seen.The food was well presented and all at the table ( 4 of us) agreed that we had enjoyed our mains. Once our mains were finished and the empty plates taken away we unfortuately had to wait for our dessert order to be taken. The landlady did come and apologise for the original wait but they fell back into the "ignoring us" situation. The desserts were massive and suggest you share a dessert. Overall the food is well worth the value and the atmosphere brilliant. We would recommend and also go back again, hopefully to a better service.
