Went down on Saturday about 5pm it was welcoming, the beer was cheap and the atmosphere was that of a proper pub!

As per the last review both the mobile number and landline listed everywhere on the net doesn't work. The landline is not recognised and the mobile puts you through to the same grumpy bloke.

So sad to see this place closed up. Been trying to book for a few weeks but no answer and then drove past today to see that it is closed and available to let.

Exquisite, Perfection, Tantalising, Heavenly, Divine........Just some of the many compliments we have received about the new dining experience that we offer at the newly refurbished "Cross Keys Hotel - Bar and Restaurant" in Nantgarw. Under the New Management of Christine and her family, the Cross Keys has been lovingly restored to new heights. A former 18th Century Tollgate on the old Merthyr to Cardiff road, the Cross Keys has risen like a Phoenix from the Ashes to become a Smart, Relaxed, and Unique Bar and Dining experience offering that something extra special. Warm vibrant colours and relaxed settings welcome every guest to The Cross Keys. Allow us to tease those tastebuds with fine quality dining, complimented by the excellent and wide range of drinks from our Bar to give you an experience that will leave you wanting to come back for more.
