The Cross Keys
Ranked #2 of 2 Kippen B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 January 2016

Last week I stayed at The Cross Keys for three nights, in search of some post-Christmas peace and quiet. The hospitality offered by the staff of The Cross Keys was second to none; the room was basic but comfortable, and the food and drink of a very high quality. Midday and evening meals seemed to attract a happy mixture of locals and visitors, and the beers on tap are brewed locally to Kippen at the Fallen Brewery. Hearty breakfast, and a lovely location. Would heartily recommend.

My wife and I turned up at the Cross Keys on a Sunday afternoon without booking only to find the place full to bursting with a group of 45 having a Christmas lunch.
We were still made to feel welcome and finding was no problem to the staff who bent over backwards to produce an amazing pub lunch.
I had venison croquettes to start with followed by a salmon & halibut stew fantastic.
They also have a good range of real ales.

Popped in for dinner on Halloween and wasn't dissapointed. To be honest I didn't really think about Halloween, and when I walked up was little worried it was going to be really busy! It was but we were shown through to the quieter restaurant with a roaring open fire! Perfect! The menu was impressive and the food didn't disappoint! The waiter was very enthusiastic, nice too see someone so passionate!

Will definitely return

Delicious meal with family last night. Cooked to perfection as always, very well presented and service great. Roaring fire and Scottish music added to the perfect atmosphere. Very relaxed and cosy, could've stayed all night.
