The Cross Keys is centrally located in our jewel of a town. We offer; delicious fresh food amazing wines and bedrooms to die for all complimented by a marriage of the Cross Keys Elizabethan architecture and contemporary design. Our 9 new en-suite bedrooms have been thoughtfully and carefully designed with only the finest furniture and we believe the most comfortable beds to be found in Essex where a good night's sleep is something to be guaranteed.
The building dates back some 850 years and is one of the most important buildings architecturally and commercially in the centre of Saffron Walden. Restored and renovated in 2012 nine unique bedrooms have been added to the Cross keys award winning food and service. Each one of the bedrooms is different with its own unique character.
Including 3 beautiful deluxe rooms added in 2015. We don't believe in doing fussy and complicated things with these delicious ingredients but instead would rather they were complimented treated with love and brought to the table just as they should be. Eat with us and choose from classic dishes such as fish and chips or Pork Belly.
