Cross Keys57 Black Lion Lane
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Very much a traditional pub in the exclusive St Peter's Square area of Hammersmith, the Cross Keys attracts a mixed clientèle. Long owned by Fuller's, its handpumps used to serve exclusively London Pride, but now a Dark Star Pale Ale, or possibly a guest ale, is usually also offered. From the narrow frontage, with its attractive garden, two doors lead into the single room, wood panelled, with its anaglypta papered ceiling supported on slender iron columns. To the left, a rare sight in today's London pubs, is a dart board. Beyond the bar, the room opens out and leads to the two rear gardens separated by "The Barn", which can be reserved for functions. A short, but attractive, menu offers up-market pub-grub at modest prices for the area. The kitchen may stay open late on the popular Thursday Quiz Night and the pub's website has occasional offers.
