Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Redgrave Cross Keys

Redgrave Cross Keys

Due to the government announcement of January 4th, pubs are currently not permitted to sell alcohol to take away, though they are permitted to deliver it. We hope this will change before too long, so still list Suffolk pubs intending to sell takeaway drinks. Food continues to be available for takeaway as before.

We may be in Lockdown but the Cross Keys is still open for takeaways

Starting this week Heidi and Graeme will be doing take-away meals on Friday evening and Sunday lunchtime.

Fridays will continue with the ‘themed’ meals – burgers, pie & mash, curry, fish & chips and then repeat…

Sundays will of course be a classic Sunday roast.

THIS FRIDAY is burger night, with the following options:

Cross Keys beef burger – £7

Beef burger with cheese and bacon – £8

‘Dirty’ burger with cheese and slow braised beef – £9

Veggie burger ( beetroot, borlotti bean and harissa) – £7

All burgers are served in a brioche bun with sauce, baby gem lettuce, gherkin and tomato, with hand-cut chips.

SUNDAY LUNCH is roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, buttered greens, cauliflower cheese, honey roast parsnip and carrots – all for £13. Dessert – sticky toffee pudding with honeycomb ice cream – is an extra £3.

Call the pub on 01379 779822 to book (if no answer leave a message and we’ll get back to you).

Collection will be from 5 to 8 on Fridays, 12-2 on Sundays, card payments only.

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".
