user reviews of the Cross Keys, Stratford Upon Avon

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Now known as The Keys and Kitchen following a refurbishment a month or so ago. Therefore all previous reviews are arguably invalid. We tried to visit a week ago but it was so busy that we decided not to bother when we couldn't get near the bar. Will try again soon.

Went there July 2013. Nice enough boozer, not somewhere I would take the wife, the beer was not great, I had the John Smiths it was just about okay, there are a lot of better pubs to choose from in town, We go every July to Stratford for 4 days of drinking worked around the British Grand Prix, I suspect we will end up here at some point next year, but only for one or two

A friendly enough welcome but the Theakston's was only just drinkable and there was no other choice. Maybe I was too old for the place but I don't see any reason to return (although I did remember the mid 90s music that was blaring out in the back room!).

Comfortable sofa's, cask beer on draft, not too busy when we visited a couple of weeks ago.

Clean facilities, though could possibly have done with a lick of paint.

No ale on tap. Horribly smoky. Cramped (the football was on). Barman sporting Burberry. Kids with dodgy ID drinking in there. Avoid.

Poncey wine bar wannabe frequented by pretentious spanners who think their a cut above the rest. Saying that, the pub is ok if the music is kept down a bit. Nice area out the back

Great if you like standing around not being able to talk or hear other people talking to you. The music is best described as mind-numbing. Takes about a week to get served.

A place to be seen if you think you're crazy but cool.

This is a smart pub of the loungebar variety. It's young, trendy and expensive with plush sofas and bland smugness oozing from the walls. Anyone not sporting a hairstyle will feel quite uncomfortable in here.

The local middle-class 'cool' kids hang out here - the boys with their hair sculpted in four different directions, the girls wearing whatever clothes a magazine has told them to wear that week. A doughty crowd of callow fashionable youths mean that this is hardly a cafe philosophe...but if you think 'dialectic' is a scary robot in Dr Who, then this is probably the pub for you.
