Welcome to The Cross Keys
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.
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 - learn more about this history here.
"Such high quality" - Nottingham Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA)
Worker Friendly Venue
We’re excited to announce that we’ve joined forces with Dispace, the UK’s leading co-working community, to provide space at the Cross Keys for people to work during the week.
Dispace is partnering with amazing bars and restaurants like ours to provide people who regularly do their work on the move with inspiring places to sit down, plug in and connect.
They will also run regular events here for their members and deliver the service through an app that lets you meet and network with other mobile workers.
