The Cross Keys has joined the Adnams Managed Properties Group and reopened on Friday 1st March 2019 after a full refurbishment. It now includes three boutique guest bedrooms for bed and breakfast stays

This 15th Century pub is set back from sea front and is one of the oldest buildings in the town. Steps down from road lead into a small seating area which leads to the main bar and a variety of other seating areas. Seafood is a speciality. The pub has close ties with nearby lifeboat.

There is some dispute about the building's age: A Survey of Suffolk Parish History says it was built in 1769, other authorities date it to the 15th century (maybe an earlier inn on this site?)

Footnote

The sign of the cross keys is usually a reference to St Peter - an early christian follower and told by Jesus that "I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven".
