Sought refuge here during the chaos of the makers market when everywhere else is so busy. This place wasn't. We could take the dog in, the food was good, relatively cheap ( a difficult ask in Knutsford!) and nobody got annoyed by the kids. So it did just what we needed. I suspect it's a bit looked down on in the town as it's not über trendy and I wouldn't come here on a date but a good honest pub.

Good Afternoon, I just wanted to respond to assure you your comments have been taken on board. We are fully refurbishing the building and rooms next spring as we are aware there are issues currently and appreciate that they are not to the best standard at the moment. In terms of the poor second breakfast, I sincerely apologise that you didn't get the same breakfast 2 days running as consistency is key within our kitchen and I have passed your comments on to the team to ensure that everyone creates the same standards every time. I really do hope you'll visit us again.

Visited last Saturday , primarily to watch The Rugby Grand Final on Sky ! They have a Great menu of Various Gins and Mixers , usually served with a slice of Grapefruit . Fabulous . Very friendly bar staff too . I got the Munchies in the first half so ordered a starter portion of Sticky Chicken wings . They were served , very quickly , NOT microwaved , beautifully cooked and arrived in a half pint dimple glass ! Very unique , to me anyway ! I live in Knutsford and the Cross Keys was not one of my regular watering holes . That is going to change . Really enjoyed my evening there .

Sorry, but not impressed.
TV in room had no aerial lead, complained on first night, not sorted. Complained again the following morning and promised it would be sorted for the second night. Got back from a training course, still no TV aerial. Took a third complaint to a different duty manager to get a lead for the TV.
Rooms very hot.
Bathroom tired.
Food ok, but not all items available, no mushrooms with steak, no mushrooms with full English.... no jam for toast....
Just all around poor.

Stayed 1 night when attending a wedding next door, the pub is lovely serving great food, good size room, bathroom would benefit from updating as showers didn’t maintain temperature and hot tap on sink didn’t get hot. Breakfast was delicious and staff were friendly and helpful. Good value for money.
