About the Pub

The building dating from the 17th Century has been a pub since 1840 and has a nationally important historic interior. Situated next to the church in a small village close to the Welsh border and Offa's Dyke. The cosy small bar with its quarry tiled floor and real fire is probably the soul of the pub and is the locals' favoured retreat, but these days there are four further rooms. The second quarry tiled room across the corridor from the bar has a piano and caters for music nights, but the other three have been carefully and tastefully restored by the new owners with features such as exposed original stone walls and log burners. However, they are mindful that they are dealing with what could be regarded as a much cherished institution! There are two which are pretty much devoted to dining and the third is a rather snug little lounge. Just up the road from the pub, there's an example of the imaginative use of a redundant red telephone box as a book swap venue, and also houses an accessible and fully maintained heart defibrillator. The local CAMRA branch's Rural Pub of the Year in 2012, runner up in 2019 and its Branch pub of the Year in 2013, the Cross Keys is a little off the beaten track, but is a gem that makes the journey well worthwhile. It first made an appearance in the Good Beer Guide in the early days of 1976 and has been in 36 of the 45 editions since!. Was once one of the 8 pubs owned by J Edwards & Sons brewery of Weston Rhyn - one of Shropshire's long lost breweries!
