Change of heart.....

After having had several bad visits to Cross Keys over recent years, most often the problem being food having to be returned for being cold, I have held off reviewing as I don't particularly like to leave bad reviews unless they're seriously warranted.

Visited for a meal with my wife on a Saturday evening. The service was friendly, quick and efficient. The food came quickly and tasted great and while there wasn't a massive selection of beers those they had were kept well. Good value too.

We downloaded a voucher for a free starter before we went so had excellent value for money. The starters were fantastic - lots of great choice. The mains were good but a bit of a disappointment in comparison to how good the starters were. Drinks are expensive but of good quality. I would return again

Excellent stay, lovely lunch and great value. Was concerned about traffic noise as on main road but the windows did the job and we couldn't hear it at all!

I had the unfortunate experience of visiting the cross keys twice in two weeks, the first with family and the second with work colleagues. The first time we ordered from the two course for £12 option, which to be honest only saves you about £2 - not much of a deal in my opinion. I had mushrooms on a muffin,... More

Our party of 4 dined here recently. 2 had the chicken pie which was really lovely, 1 had the fish pie which was also lovely and I had piella which was awful, it tasted stale, didn't realise rice could taste stale, the chicken was hard and old and the prawns not much better. The waitress was lovely and apologised for... More

Visited here early evening on a Thursday. There was nobody to ask for a table, so after hovering around for a while we went to the bar. She took our drinks and food order and told us to sit down wherever. The food took ages to come & then we were just left. Nobody asked us how it was, no... More

We have often had Sunday lunch here at the Cross Keys Guisborough. Whilst the food remains of a very good standard, the service is very erratic. Our waitress sought to contradict what was on the menu when we queried the absence of one item on a plate. Also, she was walking away before she'd finished the sentence or allowed us... More

Spent two nights here used as a base for flat hunting in Middlesbrough for my daughter for college . Rooms spotless , warm and very comfy beds. Noise from road minimal due to secondary glazing and very little night traffic. Have not eaten breakfast or dinner here so can't comment but the attached pub is lovely looking and clearly popular.

Just wanted to share my thoughts. My husband and I had a meal, 'vegetarian' fish and chips at the Cross Keys. The food was presented well and tasted great. The staff and service was also great. We will definately return. Lovely to find a 'regular' place doing good 'ordinary vegetarian food.
