The food was brilliant- steak pie highly recommended with awesome full pastry case! Nice cosy afternoon spent here in front of the fire as it was a rainy July afternoon in Scotland. Very welcoming staff and our dog also made friends with the resident labradoodle :)

A lovely warm welcome when we arrived for our 3 night stay. Brian and his staff were busy when we arrived, but took time to show us to our room, and explain all we needed to know. Our room was bright and clean, with the comfiest bed and pillows we have slept on. Great shower too. We ate here all... More

We stayed the night of my 70th birthday at the Cross Keys and were very pleased with the accommodation and meal supplied. We invited 5 friends to join us for dinner and everyone enjoyed their meal thoroughly whether it was sea trout, venison or tagine. The only slight problem was two starters of feta salad arriving without the feta but... More

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
