Oldie worldly pub with creaky floorboards, clean and comfortable and value for money. Fantastic hearty breakfast with good quality sausage and bacon, definitely set us up for the day. Great evening menu too, the fish and chips in Adnams beer batter are to die for.

I tend to eat here whenever in Aldeburgh. They have a good range of options, light or full menu, including lovely crab sandwiches when in season. There is always good bitter for a lunchtime pint. The garden area isn't the most scenic but it works and is generally a quiet place to sit and enjoy the sea air. Inside there... More

A quick drink here whilst on a family visit to Aldeburgh. I've been coming to this pub for over fifty years with my parents and now my own family. There's nothing cool or trendy about it at all - just a good old fashioned pub which sells great beer (Adnams). Great value food too (have the fish) and they even... More

Ate here today. It was very busy inside and out but there was no delay on out food. We both ordered fish and chips that was well presented and piping hot. Staff were very friendly and we would eat here again.

Happened upon this pub by chance - walked in back door from promenade - pleasantly surprised by choice of menu and very nice service. Outdoor eating area overlooking beach and plenty of 'olde worlde' charm in pub area.

We were at Aldeburgh for the festival and after a lecture in an adjacent hall we went to the Cross Keys, which is right in the centre of town for lunch. We had excellent seafood salads and my crab was very fresh and attractively served. The beer looks good although I had soft drinks. Décor is good and the puddings... More

Maybe the Cross keys has changed hands since most of these reviews have been written I went there for a couple of meals over the weekend and the service was friendly and cheerful. The food was ok and the pate starter was almost a meal on its own. Would recommend it to anyone.

The cooking has improved dramatically. I had one of the best meals ever today as did my partner. My criticism of this pub was that it was cold but today with warm weather we sat out side. I don't understand earlier reviews my meal was exceptionally good. Lovey smile greeted us and we were looked after throughout.
