About the Pub

Situated on the corner of Byard Lane and Fletcher Gate, the pub was rescued, fully re-furbished and re-opened in 2010 by Great Northern Inns. A tavern called The Cross Keys has existed on this site for at least 200 hundred years. The current building is thought to be mid/late Victorian, which the architecture and d├ęcor would seem to back up. This split-level pub has a very relaxed atmosphere with lots of natural light, high ceilings and wooden floorboards. The outside seating area offers the visitor the chance to unwind in dappled shade and watch the world drift by. The pub has been issued with Best Bar None awards. There is now a selection of 4 craft keg beers and continental bottled beers.
