This place used to be really 'olde world' with a lovely open fire but is now a bit weatherspoons in its decor. The food here is pretty reliable but its a shame they have lost some atmosphere.

Went for Wednesday lunch. Very quiet with only two other tables occupied. A good menu and, apart from overcooked bacon and chips, food was perfectly decent and well presented. Service was polite and efficient, as would be hoped. Good experience and would go again, but difficult to reconcile hyperbole of Tripadviser reports for Cross Keys, which put Cross Keys as... More

We have just moved into the village from London so over the past weeks have tried all the pubs and restaurants in the area. We have spoilt for choice in London and was surprised to see a good selection of restaurants in the village but the Cross Keys was the one we love mainly because of the overall welcome shown...

Popped in on good Friday for dinner. Hadn't booked but the staff went out of their way to find us a table in a packed restaurant. Had the macrel Scottish egg and the fish. Both dishes were superb. Daughter had her customary chicken burger!!

On Easter Saturday we enjoyed a lovely meal at the Cross Keys - the menu was very varied and I actually struggled to decide what to eat. I decided oh the peppered steak pie which was delicious and the rest of my family were all very pleased with their selections. The staff were friendly and attentive and the overall atmosphere...

One of those great places that gives you a buzz! We had booked a table for 1 o'clock but arrived at Great Missenden early, so went to Cross Keys to see if we could get in early 12.30. It was no problem for the charming, professional, effortlessly helpful staff. The food was delicious, with one of the best steak pies... More

A good welcome by the staff and a very genial lanlord. A pleasant haven from the Roald Dahl Museum just across the road. Great meal and service.

Popped in of the off chance of getting a table for 2 on a busy weekend. No problem if we avoided the crush starting soon! Very good food and good service. Thanks for fitting us in.

Having visited the Cross Keys around half a year ago now with my wife and young family, I decided I would take a trip over again last week to sample a glass of wine and some food while I was on business close to London. I was not disappointed, it was well worth the trip (around 45 minutes in all).... More
