Cross Keys Hotel
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
For the past few centuries, the Cross Keys Hotel in the village of Canonbie has welcomed weary travellers travelling between Edinburgh and Carlisle with warmth, comfort and hearty sustenance. The ancient 17th-Century coaching inn lies along the scenic route into Edinburgh and less than 20 minutes from Gretna Green. With ten individually decorated en-suite bedrooms and an ideal location close to the River Esk, the Cross Keys is a favourite for fishermen, travellers and followers of the historic Reiver trail. Still enjoying popularity 400 years on, the hotel has been extensively refurbished to bring it into the 21st Century. Owners Brian and Yvonne Macaskill continue to provide traditional hospitality, offering a welcoming and relaxing experience to all who cross their threshold, be they traveller or local. Good food and plenty of choice are the hallmarks of the Cross Keys' restaurant, and careful thought has gone into the bar menu, which caters for everyone. Diners can look forward to a wide variety of starters, mains and desserts, from popular pub grub, to finely prepared duck, lamb, salmon and sirloin dishes, all made on the premises using fresh, quality ingredients. At the weekends, the Cross Keys carvery provides top-quality roasts, perfectly cooked and accompanied by an extensive selection of delicious homemade vegetable dishes that give the best of the region's restaurants a good run for their money.
