Stayed here for one night and enjoyed our stay. The room was nicely decorated and clean. A few extras weren't in the room - tea/coffee, tissues or telephone. We had an evening meal in the bar and everything was well presented and yummy, especially the desserts. Breakfast was also really good and served in a little breakfast room which was... More

Have been twice - very good food - trying to be Gastro pub style and seems to be managing ! Has a nice beer garden outside or you can sit by the fire and you can also bring a dog if you have been for a walk around Kippen.

Got as a last minute it is on deal, rooms were perfect, clean, quiet and comfy beds. We had food on the bar which was delicious & next morning the full Scottish breakfast was superb. Would definitely return.

Booked this to break our journey home, what a gem. Lovely room, clean and fresh, comfy bed. Pub dog friendly and had a lovely atmosphere. Lovely to see a proper local pub, this pub could so easily be missed which would be such a shame. Good selection of ales, friendly bar staff, and lovely open fires. What is not to... More

We happened to stumble across this pub whilst out for a drive today and were pleasantly surprised to do so. We arrived into a cosy little bar that had just obviously been up to a high standard. We got sat next to the open fire which was happily crackling away and made the experience that little bit better. We both... More

Stayed at the Cross Keys for DBB using an Itison voucher, very good value, as stated by a previous reviewer the premises close between 3 and 5 which we did not realise before we arrived. We were however checked in by the owner who showed us to our double room. The room itself was basic but functional. The premises have... More

Got this on an ITISON deal. Staff were great, nothing too much trouble. Cracking atmospheric bar which was very well stocked at reasonable prices. The food was quite simply first class and plenty of it both at dinner then breakfast the following day. We stayed in Room 1 which is a twin room. It is quite small and think that... More

Second visit to this pub. First time for lunch, when we decided we would come back to stay and have dinner. What I like about this place is that it is a proper pub, with drinkers and dogs and the footy results. It also does excellent food, beer and wine and has good pub service. If you want to be... More
