Tom and his team offer you a warm welcome to the Cross Keys which we are proud to maintain as a traditional British Inn catering for the needs of locals and tourists alike. We stock four cask ales including Bellerby Bitter (brewed for us by the Wesleydale Brewery which is located in the village and to which we can arrange visits) as well as a range of quality wines and our collection of single malt whisky.
Bellerby is an ideal base for exploring the Dales being located on the cusp of Wensley & Swaledale literally one mile outside of Leyburn and an easy 15 minute drive into such local attractions as the market town of Richmond with it s imposing castle, the racing town of Middleham and of course the legendary Forbidden Corner !
We are very proud of the reputation which we have built up for the quality of our bar meals (apparently our breakfasts are not too bad either!) and would describe ourselves very much as a Pub which serves meals rather than a Restaurant which serves beer . All our food is locally sourced and freshly prepared, including of course our homemade chips and free range eggs from our own chickens. Please see our sample menu, which does alter slightly on a daily basis depending upon which dishes we have cooked.
We have 3 lovely, recently refurbished, en-suite letting rooms on offer, all themed differently.
There are some great walks from the pub where you can explore the beautiful countryside we have ample parking and we can also provide secure storage facilities for your cycles.
Families and dogs are welcome in the pub, beer garden and paddock and there is disabled access to the bar and toilets.
We have our own Quoits pits in our paddock and guests are very welcome to try their hand at this traditional Dales sport.
If approaching from the North turn off the A1 at the juction with the A3136 and follow signs for Catterick Garrison and then Leyburn A6108. We are on the main road and in the centre of the village on the left..
From the South turn off the A1 at the junction with the A684 signposted Bedale and go through Bedale following signs for Leyburn. When in Leyburn turn right at the roundabout at the top of the market square and follow signs for the A6108 Bellerby. We will be on the right as you drive through the village on a fairly sharp right hand bend.
If approaching from Hawes head for Leyburn and then proceed as directed above.
