WHY HAS CROSS KEYS CLOSED? 

The reason for the abrupt closure hasn't been fully confirmed, but Spire FM News has been given a statement from one of the people involved:

"The owners of Cross Keys Restaurant are still unclear of the situation, however they are doing everything they can to re-open as soon as possible."

Signage has been put on the door of the cafe explaining that legal action is being taken:
