Your Inn......Our Home

Pay a visit to The Cross Keys in Combe Down, recently re-purchased as a freehouse by the owners Clive and Samantha Prescott, 10 minutes from the city centre and you'll not only get a warm welcome but also find delicious food, a great selection of wines, beers and ales, ciders and lots more besides. We're a family and dog friendly pub, open 7 days a week - with our welcoming log fires in the winter and a large family garden in the summer, you'll find us worth a visit all year round.

Authentic freehouse

Our freehouse dates from the 18th century, but we've brought it right up to date, with FREE wi-fi & a popular pub quiz.

Great food and drink

From hearty or light pub lunches to dinners and Sunday roasts, you'll find plenty to eat and drink at the Cross Keys.

Family friendly pub

Enjoy a drink in our large family friendly garden. Or why not treat your kids to one of our delicious children's meals?

Visit our family run 18th century alehouse and restaurant and you'll find out why 'Your Inn ... our Home'.
