Hi. I was there with my friends back in 1996 and we felt good, listening to some rock music from the jukebox and drinking some beer. It is sad that it is closed now. Today it came into my mind because at the moment I am listening to 'March of Time' by Helloween, and I remeber that I wrote onto the beermat that "Life's too short to cry, long enough to try!" :-)

Another one bites the dust :( It's now a Japanese restaurant.

The present photographs hardly do this comfy little gem justice. It has to be garish to distract people from the more obvious [if you're walking down Trumpington St] 'Snug' around the corner, y'see? Perfect for a summer afternoon's drinking, with decent beer at decent prices. Heck, it even has a good view! And yes, the barman/landlord is chatty and friendly.

The rather bright and garish bright yellow exterior makes the Cross Keys resemble an Irish pub from the outside but it does at least stand out even though it is set back off the main road. The split level interior is fairly plain and light with bare floors and built in cushioned pews. A collection of plates, jugs, urns and meat trays are mixed in with drawings of the local colleges and Guiness cartoons but the drink promo posters are a bit intrusive. The chatty landlord was quite welcoming and the locals friendly enough, if a little on the weird side. 4 decent Ales on my visit (Woodford Wherry, Landlord, Pride and Deuchers), quality very good and reasonably priced for a city that can throw up a few shocks in the price department. 2 well postioned plasma screens and a further basic TV. Overall it is worth popping in if passing as it is far enough away from the city centre to escape the tourist element but take note that it does appear to have variable opening hours

A small bright yellow pub just outside of the city center. Good selection of ales but not much outside seating. Tried the Ringwood best not normally seen around here and it was very good. Barman very friendly and worth the short walk to get to.
