This place serves the best pint of strongbow in the city. It also has the best(if not the only) jukebox in the area. Always worth stopping by for one!

Went to the one near the ibis first. This is a terrible pub, also called the cross keys that googlemaps has linked to the website of the GOOD cross keys just off gloucester high street.

There are only a few tables so we were lucky to get one and the pub was relatively quite (to say it was a Saturday night). The decor is a bit random..... More

This place is like a reverse Tardis, much bigger on the outside than on the inside, because half the building is made up of a vintage shop.

Visiting Gloucester, the Cross Keys was our best pub experience, and it was exceedingly friendly. Sensibly offering only one real ale to ensure quality, that was certainly the case. A local Gloucestershire Ale was being served and it was superb. For a short while in the mid 1890s the inn was owned by the Tayler brewery of Northleach, which family... More
