Knutsford’s Cross Keys reopens with huge pub garden

By on August 9, 2019

If you’ve taken a walk down King Street in Knutsford recently, you’ll have noticed The Cross Keys Hotel has been closed for refurbishment.

The Cross Keys has now officially opened its doors again and it has unveiled a much sought after feature.

The former hotel reception building at the back of the popular hotel and pub has been removed to make way for a brand new large outdoor garden, which offers split-level seating, a raised upper decking area and a dedicated outside bar.

Inside, there has also been a complete transformation of the accommodation. All 13 hotel rooms have been full refurbished and offer high-spec en-suite bathrooms with a mixture of family rooms, double rooms and single rooms available.

General Manager, Sarah Rees said: “I am so excited to welcome everyone to see the new and hugely improved Cross Keys. With a spectacular and spacious beer garden with its own Camden bar, it’s going to be the place to be.

“Inside we have plenty new offerings including a new bar and menu, but you can still find the same friendly faces. All 13 hotel rooms offer modern en-suite bathrooms and are fully fitted with a flat screen TV, free WiFi, Nespresso coffee machine, Dyson fan, and quality cotton linen.

“The bedrooms have also been named by the local community after we asked for suggestions relating to Knutsford. We were overwhelmed with the response and guests can now stay in rooms like the Henry Royce suite and the bridal suite is named after Lady Jane Stanley.”

It is open from 8am for breakfast and coffee, followed by lunchtime offers, new evening menu and a bottomless gravy and unlimited Yorkshire puddings Sunday Roast.

There will be regular events, live music and garden parties as well as outdoor spaces available for special occasions.
