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.
