Cross Keys Inn, Temperance

long house

The Cross Keys is a 400 year old National Trust Temperance Inn. Situated at the base of Cautley Spout, in the heart of the Howgills, Sedbergh, Cumbria.

We have a small farmhouse style restaurant where we serve daytime meals and snacks and evening meals.

Our opening times are as follows....SORRY but we are CLOSED for the period 21st January to 14th February 2018

  • Winter months- October-March. - Wednesday to Sunday inclusive from 10.00a.m. to 4.00p.m.
  • Summer months - April -September - Wednesday to Sunday inclusive from 8.30a.m. to 4.30pm. During the summer we stay open till 5.00 on Sundays to link with the Western Dales Bus.
  • We also open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night to non-residents for evening meals from 6.30p.m. but boooking is essential.

.Booking for evening meals is essential as we are quite busy and we do recommend you book early, however for parties of 10 or more we are happy to open on other nights if this would help. Please note our kitchen closes at 9.15 p.m. All food is home cooked and usually prepared using fresh local produce. On Sundays we always prepare a roast and it helps if you book a table - its often quite busy. And now every Thursday is HOME MADE PIE DAY. Why not join us for lunch with a selection of home made pies served with chips or creamed potatoes and vegetables along with tea or coffee for just 7.50!

We also have 2 comfortable ensuite rooms where we offer Bed and Breakfast and serve evening meals to residents each evening.
