A very warm welcome from the new(ish) owners, they took it on in the last year and were very helpful and friendly. We had room 2, a sizeable double with large en-suite for a village inn and were well supplied with toiletries in a travel bag. I'm not sure if you are expected to take it with you but as... More

The pub had been closed for few years, but now it’s open again, and the new team seem to be getting it right. The Cross Keys location is both a great advantage, and a handicap. Finding it is the main problem, it’s in Upper Chute. There are quite a few Chutes, Upper Chute is down a network of lanes, at... More

I stayed for 5 nights on business. I'd really like to go back for a relaxing break and do some walking. Gerry and Jane are friendly and welcoming hosts. The pub is in a lovely spot with far ranging views from the beer garden. It is in lovely undulating countryside - great for walking. It is incredibly remote, but it... More

Hi William L, Thank you for your review. We are pleased, as local villagers, that we are saving our lovely pub and letting rooms from those who seek to close such places causing great loss to a community. You are helping us enormously by submitting positive reviews for future visitors to see. Kind regards, Jane More
