I think that from what some locals told us the Cross Keys has a thriving lunch time service. Four of us went on a Saturday night at about 8pm and until about 9pm were the only customers in the restaurant and there were only about 3 others in the bar. However the person greeting us was lovely and the food really good quality and so if you want a quiet intimate meal it would be a good venue but not if you wanted a more lively atmosphere. That said, we enjoyed ourselves and will go back for lunch one weekend soon when we stay with our friends again.
