“Aways a friendly welcome”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is a regular call in for lunch for us when we are walking in the Usk area. We have the £5 pensioner's menu for 2 courses, and it is extremely good! Recommended. The staff are always very friendly and helpful and the service is fast. The price of drinks is very reasonable and the atmosphere in the old coaching inn always enables you to get away from the pressures of modern living. It has a good car park at the rear. It's the best pub in Usk!

Stayed here for 2 nights recently and was impressed by the very clean room and en-suite shower. The weather was very warm so it was a great comfort to have a good fan in the room. The room overlooked the road so was a bit noisy on the Friday night - but then I am used to having no sound at all where I live so I'm sure others would not mind so much. Wonderful breakfast, nice to have papers to read as I was on my own. Staff were very helpful, even phoned me, as I left some cloths in the wardrobe and I was able to double back to collect them without having gone too far. Thoroughly recommend for a short stay.

We made a detour to Usk on our way to Cardiff and popped in to the Cross Keys for a late Saturday lunch (Lunch is served until 2.30 p.m.). As it was a sunny day we sat in the garden at the rear of the pub. Lovely friendly welcome and there is a two course lunch menu available for £5 for senior citizens as well as a good selection from the main Menu. Beer was good and the Corned Beef and Potato pie was delicious! There were also daily papers available for customers to peruse. The girl who served us checked that we were happy with everything and was very efficient. Won't hesitate to call in again when we are in the area.

Not sure there is any reason for negative comments about The Cross Keys. We have stayed here every year for 7 years for a whole weekend and have never had anything but pleasant, friendly service. The breakfast is amazing and the room is always clean and comfy. If you like a proper old pub/ B&B, this place is great, lots of charm and history. Also great location, it only takes us 20 minutes to get to Cardiff. Already looking forward to our next years stay. Thanks for making the children so welcome too. Chantal & Andrew

This is a great old pub in the centre of Usk with easy parking and an atmosphere built on centuries of local trade. The bars are low ceilinged with beams and the cheery log fire is a great focal point and source of warmth.

The welcome is friendly enough and the food is simple - good and honest pub grub - very well cooked and served and piping hot. Not a great range of choices and styles so not a gastro establishment but you certainly won't leave here hungry! Haven't stayed so can't comment on the rooms but would certainly go back for a hearty meal anytime.

Had a lovely peaceful stay last week at this great pub. Our room was as the picture showed and very comfortable. En suite was small but clean and adequate for our needs. We were made to feel very welcome and the landlady and landlord were very accommordating. Make sure you have the breakfast, it was just about the best we've ever had. We will be visiting again as we have family and friends in the surrounding area.
