The Cross Keys situated on Byard Lane in Nottingham near to the historically Weekday Cross. The pub is a fantastic little gem of a pub, the sort of pub hard to find these days.
The pub is steeped in rich heritage. Based in the old Saxon Borough of Nottingham, there has been a pub on the site of the present for at least two hundred years and probably a former pub stood on the site much longer than that. It was once said that Nottingham had so many pubs that there was enough to serve the whole population of the old town twice over. Anyway pubs nowadays are few and especially decent ones, this one is defiantly worth a visit.
The pub serves up to seven hand pulled real ales, why not try Nottingham’s famous Blue Monkey or Mallard beers. There is a good selection of ciders and decent lagers on offer too. A good food menu is on offer here, serving decent British food. Why not have a Sunday Lunch while you sip your BG Sips from Blue Monkey.
Now the sh*tters.
The gents are located to the right of the bar through a corridor. Interestingly as you enter the bogs there is one single cubicle here separated from the main p*ss trough room. Both rooms are very small. Nice to see a traditional p*ss trough, there seems to be very few around in Notts these days. Be careful if your p*ssed out your skull as it is very tight space in the bogs. One wash basin and hand dryer.
Overall not a bad bog. Could have been a little bit cleaner. Anyway this is a great pub highly recommended.
