Welcome to The Cross Keys
The Cross Keys offers a fantastic range of quality beers and wines, including 7 hand-pulled real ales. Our food menu is essentially British-based with an extensive breakfast selection as well as lightbites and pub snacks.
Open from 9am every day, we are a quintessential British pub, offering comfortable surroundings, a warm welcome and good conversation.
It is known that a tavern called The Cross Keys has existed on the site at the top of Byard Lane for at least two hundred years but probably much longer.
Steeped in hundreds of years of history and renovated to the highest standards, one of Nottingham's finest gems is back to its former glory.
We are a part of Great Northern Inns, a popular, local independent pub company that has been operating in Nottingham for 25 years. Sister venues include: The Trent Navigation, The Southbank Bar, Copper and The Old Flower Shop in Mapperley.
Join us every Sunday for our Sunday Best Menu: The Chef changes the starters, mains and desserts weekly - but you can always expect to see our legendary Sunday Roast on the menu.
Choose from Beef, Chicken, Pork, Lamb or the Vegetarian Roast o the day.
We also open our 'Alice in Wonderland' themed restaurant every week to ensure we can fit you all in!
