Accepted for what it is - a pub / restaurant offering accommodation - the Cross Keys, for me, represents good value for centre of Knutsford. Rooms are what you would expect - yes maybe a little dated but functional, however on a cold evening in February the room was warm and bed comfortable. Food in Bar / Restaurant was average...

Visited with hubby & in laws for evening meal & drinks. I would say its as you'd expect for a pub really, most people there for drinks on a Saturday evening. Although food is served until 9.30 I felt out of place eating in the middle of a busy pub at 7.30. The wine was nice enough, and so was...

There were nine of us thirsty and hungry souls wandering around this lovely town when we came across The Cross Keys and we were mighty pleased we did. Looking very traditional from the outside it was a bit more modern inside and we received a great welcome from two members of staff. We were able to try some beers before...

As someone who has worked behind a bar I know how to deal with waiting customers, it seems that the staff on Saturday evening missed that class! The bar was busy for the rugby but we waited for a lull at the bar myself and another girl were completely ignored on purpose. The way the staff ignored us on Saturday...

We checked in on New Years Eve. The bar area is so welcoming and we thought this was a sign of good things to come. We got the keys to the two rooms we had booked and were directed to the little lodges at the back of the hotel. Unfortunately we had been given a single instead of a double,...

We stayed here for a couple of nights before Christmas and were pleasantly surprised! We had read some pretty bad reviews on this hotel but as we couldn't find anything else available in Knutsford we didn't have much choice but to book this - and lucky we did! Ok, to start with the very few negatives - we were in...

Nice pub but rooms very tired. We had a lodge out the back Clean and spacious but needs a make over as the bath room is still in the 70's. Food good and bar prices not to bad. But over all nice place to stop to visit this old town.

We went for pre-dinner drinks with our office team, to this place. I do not think there is anything special about this place. Just like any other pub, you can stop by for a drink and move on. It's a small pub. In case you plan to get heavily drunk, you have the option to rent a stay at the...
