Walk down the ally and there was broken glass everywhere. I walked in and the bar staff was rude and suddenly stopped serving with no last orders. Costumers said one bar staff has a hissy fit and walk off.

Beautiful location and premises. The food is perfect and the staff are the friendliest people you could ask for. The guest rooms are clean and comfortable. Would definitely visit again.

While visiting the Gloucester Shanty Festival, we spent two evenings at the Cross Keys Inn. Apart from the low ceilings (!) we had a fabulous time. Excellent beers and nice friendly staff. Could not wish for a nicer place.

This place serves the best pint of strongbow in the city. It also has the best(if not the only) jukebox in the area. Always worth stopping by for one!

We were drawn to this tiny tucked-away pub by the music coming from the modern style jukebox at the bar. Interesting place and you can sense the history. There are only a few tables so we were lucky to get one and the pub was...More

This place is like a reverse Tardis, much bigger on the outside than on the inside, because half the building is made up of a vintage shop. Do not be put off by this though, because on the first Saturday of the month they hold...More
