We provide a warm and friendly welcome to all customers at The Cross Keys, a community pub which sits at the heart of the Gainford community.

Louis and the team focus on providing excellent customer focus.

We are family and dog friendly.

Situated just off the A67 which runs between Barnard Castle and Darlington, we are on a bus route. There is plentiful parking both behind the pub in our car park and in front of the pub.

We serve food and you can find our menus here.

We are open six days a week, only closed on a Tuesday. Our opening hours are here.

A friendly welcome awaits all customers new and old.

The Cross Keys Gainford

We have aimed at blending tradition with contemporary styling. We opened in September 2023 and enjoy seeing both our regular customers and those visiting the area. 

Introducing food in April 2024 allows us to cater for the many tourists and holiday makers who visit beautiful Teesdale.
