Stan and Elaine are the most welcoming hosts ever. Food is good quality and good value. Rooms are warm and cosy. Great mix of local and visiting guests. This is a highly recommended stop over for exploring the area.

My wife and I booked in for two nights while we explored the local area. Stan and Elaine were generous hosts and the rooms and food were very good. We would recommend anyone visiting the area to stay a night or drop in for a meal or drink.

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

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...
