About Ye Olde Cross Keys

About Ye Olde Cross Keys

This historic, Grade 2 listed pub which has been here on the outskirts of the pretty medieval town of Ruthin, for 300 years or more, has undergone major refurbishment. We have some exciting improvements to come, including a garden with 12 individual patios offering stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

We have a good selection of draft ales and lagers including locally produced ales from Buzzard Brewery and our impressive wine list is hand picked for us by our very own wine importer.
