All planned events are still happening:
βœ… Saturday 21st – Bikes@theKeys + BBQ
βœ… Monday 23rd – Ian’s Quiz night
βœ… Monday 30th – V8 Hotrods and Backstreet

The ever popular Bikes@theKeys is back on Sat 21st August, starting at 12:00.

Come with your bike or just come to see the spectacle of lots of motor-bikes parked on the Knoll and around.

There will be a BBQ in the garden.

Opening TODAY at Noon – Hooray🎊

All staff have had a final PCR – all are negative
Deep clean completed today also
Which means only one thing πŸ™‚
We will be opening tomorrow (Thursday 10th June) 12noon.

We would like to thank you all for your kind words, patience and support. We cannot wait to reopen and look forward to seeing you all Thursday πŸ™‚ Remember to please always stay safe


Test and Trace require us to have a deep-clean done before reopening and we had arranged for a specialist company do this on Tuesday morning. Unfortunately they have now told us the soonest that they can do this is Wednesday. We have made the decision to delay opening until Thursday.

We understand this is frustrating and we are doing our best to make sure when we re open it is safely. We hope you understand.


Due to the positive result last Saturday and our small team here at The Cross Keys, we are taking extra care to follow procedures. All our staff that came in contact with the person with positive result are isolating and taking a test everyday this is for 10 days (isolation period).

Unfortunately this mean we will be closed the weekend and hoping to reopen Tuesday 8th June.

Once again we would like to thank you all for your kind words, patience and support it means a lot to us.

Thank you
