I was at the cross keys the evening of the last review, which is most unfair. i"d had their wonderful fish and chips, served to my liking crisp home made beer batter home made chips and mushy peas ! WOWZA!!!! Popular with us locals although i do travel from box for my usual meal. The couple who say their food was under par must be joking ! May be swing their golf club else where ! I have seen this little pub sparkle yet again, les who runs it does all the cooking and is wonderfull, she would make you toast if so required and dress it up like a million dollars ! she"s one of the most experienced managers i know. the night in question was grandnational day and they were chocca block during the day for food with big table bookings, not one complaint everyone raving about their food. also busy early evening for food, so when that couple came in they should have made the decision to come back another time, when not sold out of their most popular dishes, and as for freinds and family, the reviews are from genuine customers with a taste for good food and great atmosphere, the cross keys had been run down, no custom and all the locals had given up on it, through previous bad management and most unpleasant to sit in, so the result was it closed down ! then came along les and ming in december and through hard work and determination we have a cracking pub which is on the up & up she put her formidiable stamp on it along with all the lads and customers which have helped, done the decor and furnishings etc and their we have a great little pub, selling good beer and food and exceptional sunday lunch. yes is the answer we are all proud of are little pub, coming out of no where and concidering its only been open since the middle of december and didnt start food untill january we all think its topps. warm cosy, good grub. well kept beer . sunday lunch with home made yorkshire puddings, gravy to die for and a sunday night quiz thrown in for good measure ! what more could we ask for in a pub that charles dickens stayed at and wrote part of the pick wick papers. well done . and as for being charged full price for your mash, veg and gravy, i doubt you were charged more than a starter !
