The Cross Keys: Back Street, Peterhead
YOU’VE got to keep your strength up during a hard-And what better way of doing that than with a hearty lunch – which is why I nipped out to The Cross Keys for some tasty grub.
The bar is nice and roomy with plenty of tables so you can usually find a wee nook to yourself.
You have to order your food at the bar, but waiting staff make sure you never have to stand too long.
And my coated king prawns with sweet chilli sauce, as well as my pal’s buffalo chicken wings with barbecue sauce, (£2.79 each) arrived promptly.
My seafood was covered with a light batter and to be honest I didn’t like the look of it. But when I bit into my starter I was surprised at how lovely it tasted. The spicy sauce combined well with the prawns and it’s a dish I would definitely try again.
My buddy’s chicken wings were also finger-lickin’ good as I discovered when I was allowed a wee sample.
His chicken tikka masala (£6.39) was served with naan bread and rice and he seemed to enjoy it.
And my chilli con carne and chips (£3.99) was just the sort of stodgy food I needed on a cold dark winter day.
With its efficient waiting staff, gentle and relaxed atmosphere and incredibly cheap menu, it’s a great place to go for a quick bite. The portions are nice and large for those with a big appetite.
