We stayed here as part of a groupon deal. Our accommodation was one of the garden rooms - essentially a small bungalow in the pub garden. This was ideal, as we had the convenience of staying at a pub, but did not have to put up with noise once we went to bed. The pub was ideally located for visiting... More

The weather was miserable , it was raining and misty, however as soon as you walked through the doors of the Cross Keys Inn the welcome was amazing, the landlord and his staff could not do enough for you, we had a room with a big corner bath, and very comfortable bed. For the evening meal my wife and i... More

The room was cold and very basic with a shared bathroom and toilet down the hall. The bar food was good as were the staff but the fried breakfast wasn't up to much. But all in all it was ok for the money in a great area of the country.

I had the mega burger it was amazing smothered in blue cheese bacon and black pudding and a mountain of the crispiest delicious onion rings. Others had home made pie filled with huge chunks of chicken and... More

We stayed for a weekend and were amazed by the quality of the food, all home made and really good. Very good cask ales. The house red was also really good. Staff friendly and helpful - the landlord had quite a sense of humour.

This was not a happy experience for us. The room was spacious and looked clean. The staff were polite and curteous. However the bed was really uncomfortable. The mattress was past its usable date (in my view). We turned it over which was a bit better. But it was on a sprung bed base which was also sagging. In the... More

Many thanks for your comments I will address what you have highlighted! If I remember rightly I came up to your room as you said the water was not hot, which I got very hot for you within seconds. You were extremely nice with me & I asked if everything else was ok, to which you said everything was fine!... More

Good location for visiting both the Lakes and Yorkshire. The food was very good, the Sunday Roast was the best beef I'd ever had. It was an authentic Old English pub with roaring fire and lots of character. The garden room we had was very spacious and the bed was comfortable.

We stayed here at the end of April as a family and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. This old pub is traditional and rustic, just what you want when it's raining, cold and wet. The roaring log fire and cozy surroundings are perfect. The owner is so friendly and welcoming especially made the effort to come and speak to us... More
