The Cross Keys, Abingdon.

Public House and Bed and Breakfast

The drink

We take pride in providing a quality product as well as an enjoyable experience, each and every time you visit The Keys. We believe that quality is just as important whether you drink real ale, lager, cider or spirits. We also enjoy getting you to try something new! Have you sampled our extensive shots menu??? Or how about a yummy hot chocolate with Baileys???


Our three handpumps serve a changing range of traditional cask bitters; Morland Original, with its Abingdon heritage, being our regular ale.


We serve draught Fosters Superchilled, Carling Extra cold, Becks Vier and Kronenbourg, Strongbow, regular Guinness and Guinness Extra cold alongside a changing range of great bottled beers and ciders currently including Peroni, Speckled Hen, Crabbie's alcoholic ginger beer, Magners and Bulmers.


We have a wide range of quality spirits; current favourites are Morgans Spiced and Sailor Jerry rums and Bombay Sapphire gin.


We're also an undercover cocktail bar! We love mixed drinks and have a fantastic changing menu of around 20 different shots and feature regular cocktail promotions such as  Guinness cocktails during March and our famed 'Summer jugs'. 

A good range of fruit juices, soft drinks and fairtrade tea, coffee and hot chocolate (with or without a baileys!) are also always available.

Real Cider


We have at least one still real cider available from Easter to October.
