Popped into the Cross Keys Hotel again for lunch in New Years day. What a change from the run down place we last visited two year ago just before it went back into private hands and new ownership. Excellent food on New Years Day, cooked to perfection. The place is back to its old standards before a brewery bought up... More

With friends we have stayed here on fishing trips for the last 25 years, except for the last 4 when it was closed. Had no hesitation returning this year and found it better than ever. Stan is doing a great job. A warm helpful and friendly welcome, clean rooms, good food and friendly locals. Glad to be back at the... More

Same as Onemanandhisdog. Greeted by an empty pub and a friendly Labrador, so I took it for granted that our wee dog would be welcome. Far from it, when the landlord eventually appeared, We were told in no uncertain terms that our wee dog was not welcome. Very short and rude man, so we left. Drove to Langholm where the... More

Stayed 2 nights fishing in area,very clean and comfortable. The staff could not do enough for us and made us feel at home from the minute we walked in.Food is good and had a drink in the bar with some of the locals who made us feel like we had been there for years. Stan and his team are brilliant,... More

Clean, well kept and comfortable. Basic but excellent service provided. what else do you really need in a peaceful village in the heart of the Scottish countryside. Nothing was never to much bother and was made to feel very welcome! Good wholesome food too!

"TAKE YER DOG OUT, DOGS NOT ALLOWED IN HERE!", boomed the welcoming voice of the landlord who clearly had the Rev Ian Paisley for an elocution teacher. The RSM-like rebuke came as something of a surprise when the door of the place was near blocked by a big, friendly golden labrador. Well, silver tongued cavalier, somebody else got the custom...

Having moved to the area recently, I was glad to see that the hotel was up and running again. I used to visit this area as a child and remember the hotel was always busy. We booked for the Roast dinner and both had the beef. The carvery wasn't being used due to being early in the season, and we... More

I knew this pub thirty years ago and it was the best in the area way back then. I understand it's had a chequered history since but it's recently been refurbished and is back to it's best. A great stop off in the Borders if you're travelling north.

We have just moved to the area and were looking for somewhere to have Sunday lunch with visiting family - many of the hotels and pubs closer to us were still on their (expensive) festive menus or not doing lunch at all, so I widened my search a little - and I'm very glad I did! Our party included older... More
