The Cross Keys


A legend in Nottingham's pubbing sphere, The Cross Keys dates back at least 200 years. Having been lovingly and consciously renovated, its historic character still remains intact as it continues to satisfy punters every day of the week.

With 7 taps of real ale behind the bar, craft beer is certainly not something overlooked at this Nottingham stalwart. You can count on a menu of classic British nosh too to keep you well-fed and looked after. Taking on more of the gastro-pub edge, there are weekly specials of 'Pie Night' and 'Steak Night' to get well and truly stuck into. 

Everything about The Cross Keys speaks tradition, from the wood-clad interiors to the friendly atmosphere rife with locals. There's also a dedicated dining room above the pub for more of a restaurant experience as well as it being ideal for occasions with private hire options. If you're a sports fan and looking for a nifty local to sit back and watch the games in then The Cross Keys TVs will set you up.
