The Cross Keys, Milnthorpe, is a traditional Coaching Inn, located in South Cumbria on the doorstep of the Lake District, the Lune Valley and the Cartmel and Furness Peninsulas. The pub is made with traditional Lake District Limestone and is at the centre of the crossroads in Milnthorpe. The pub has a traditional feel, with a limed oak panelled bar which serves the main bar area as well as the lounge areas that are attached. The bar is well stocked, with a good selection of Robinsons Ales, kegged, beers, wines, and spirits. Pub games are a favourite in this pub, with darts and a pool table available to use. There is a well-equipped kitchen, which can produce some good home cooked food. As a bonus, the pub has eight en-suite letting bedrooms on the first floor. This is a perfect base for exploring the Lake District and surrounding areas. The pub is within walking distance of Milnthorpe’s Square, where these is a busy Friday Street market, and the Bela River. Dallam Towers Parklands, the Kent Estuary and Arnside are a five minutes drive from the pub. Robinsons are looking for a new licensee to push this business forward, with a good food and drink offering, and pushing the rooms fully. We are looking to advertise this pub on a one year or five year agreement.

The Detail

A Little more about us

Milnthorpe is a small market town on the southern border of Cumbria, seven miles south of Kendal. Now spared of heavy traffic, it is an ancient village of limestone buildings, arranged nooks and crannies and long narrow lanes. Visitors passing through on the A6 heading towards Kendal in the North or Lancaster in the south, may over look this hidden gem, whose narrow lanes and historic, beautiful buildings recall a time when a coach and four were more common than a four wheeled drive.  There is a traditional market square which is bordered on three sides by pretty cottages and inviting shops. The fourth side opens out on to green lawns and trees leading up to an imposing and very attractive 19th century church of St Thomas.
