By Sarah Groves, also posted in News on

We're thrilled that we have been given the opportunity to bring The Cross Keys, Aldeburgh, into our Adnams Managed Properties group.

The Cross Keys is wonderfully situated in Aldeburgh to serve locals and visitors alike, with welcoming roaring fires in the colder months and a great terrace looking out to sea for when the sun is shining.

Adnams Director of Properties, Nick Attfield, comments, “The Cross Keys joins our growing portfolio of Managed Properties*, which seek to offer the very best of Adnams welcomes with perfectly poured pints, great G&Ts and delicious glasses of wine as well as great, freshly cooked food all served by passionate and knowledgeable staff. We’re relishing the opportunity and responsibility of running this pub in the very heart of the Aldeburgh community and the wonderful role it will continue to play in making people’s visits to Aldeburgh so memorable. It oozes with relaxed and understated comfort whatever the time of year. We took the decision to renovate and refurbish the pub before re-opening and our team is busy ensuring the pub’s atmosphere and character are maintained, refreshed and enhanced. We cannot wait to fling the doors back open again and welcome old and new customers.”

The Cross Keys will reopen on 1st March 2019, and will be serving a range of Adnams cask and keg beers, spirits and wines as well as traditional pub food using great local suppliers. The pub will be open every day from 11am and will be serving food from noon-3pm and 6-9pm. Three gorgeous guest bedrooms have also been renovated, offering double rooms on a bed and breakfast basis.

The pub will be managed by Emily Portsmouth who moved to Suffolk around two years ago after working in a diverse range of establishments from French ski chalets, Spanish restaurants to traditional London taverns. Emily comments, “I am thrilled to be working for Adnams as the manager of The Cross Keys. It’s great to work for a company that is so focused on the local community and making sure that every employee feels valued and part of the team. I’m very much looking forward to the re-opening on 1st March.”
