“A GREAT TRADITIONAL PUB!”
Review of Cross Keys - CLOSED

Cross Keys
Cuisines: British

Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Exquisite, Perfection, Tantalising, Heavenly, Divine........Just some of the many compliments we have received about the new dining experience that we offer at the newly refurbished "Cross Keys Hotel - Bar and Restaurant" in Nantgarw. Under the New Management of Christine and her family, the Cross Keys has been lovingly restored to new heights. A former 18th Century Tollgate on the old Merthyr to Cardiff road, the Cross Keys has risen like a Phoenix from the Ashes to become a Smart, Relaxed, and Unique Bar and Dining experience offering that something extra special. Warm vibrant colours and relaxed settings welcome every guest to The Cross Keys. Allow us to tease those tastebuds with fine quality dining, complimented by the excellent and wide range of drinks from our Bar to give you an experience that will leave you wanting to come back for more.

My daughter, my partner and myself booked to stay at the Cross Keys for one night at the very end of December. We recieved a very warm welcome from the new management. Our room was a lovely spacious room where we did not once feel cramped. The pub itself has a lovely warm, welcoming feel and is very much your traditional style pub. Nothing was too much trouble for the management who on more than one occasion went out of their way to accomodate our needs. We enjoyed ourselves that much we decided to stay on for an extra night and join in with their new years eve festivities. I can only see this pub going from strength to strength under its new management and we will most definitely be returningand making it a 'Must Visit' place to go when ever we are in the area.

As per the last review both the mobile number and landline listed everywhere on the net doesn't work. The landline is not recognised and the mobile puts you through to the same grumpy bloke.

Called the mobile number listed - which was answered very abruptly by a rude man - not a very good first impression - (I did double check and I dialled correctly) they lost my business as a result

Thank Amanda T
