The Cross Keys is a pretty little pub located on the beautiful seafront at Aldeburgh.

Dating back to 1540 the pub is glowing with history. It attracts people of all ages, with their large courtyard area facing onto the seafront being especially popular. With amazing views directly onto the beach, it is perfect for summer evenings and the annual Aldeburgh Carnival.

Ye Olde Cross Keys, Aldeburgh

"It's like I died and went to Adnam's heaven... brilliant place to try the brewery's wares. Good for a mid-week pint and to munch some decent grub. Interesting array of paraphernalia dotted around the place. Real redeeming feature is that you can potter over the road to enjoy your pint on the sea wall. It's right next to the offshore lifeboat station, which gives you pride of place amongst spectators when the lifeboat is called out."

Landlords Mike and Janet pride themselves on the range of local sea food they serve, which is caught daily by the Aldeburgh fishermen. You can sup your pint outside with a dozen local oysters, straight from Jimmy's Shed on the beach. 

Treat yourselves to a refreshing break beside the sea by booking a stay in one of the four poster rooms.
