The Cross Keys restaurant is located in the Holbeck Urban Village development, just south of Leeds railway station. Built in 1802, The Cross Keys originally served as a watering hole for local foundry workers.

 

Flying the flag for the pub side of things are an impressive and frequently changing roster of local beers on tap, as well as a range of international lagers on tap and in bottles. The menu offers an appealing range of British classics: minute steak or beer battered fish finger sandwiches for lunch, and heartier mains are also available at lunch or dinner. We love the sound of the pheasant, leek and bacon stew with apricot dumplings and buttered kale, and the fact that each main has its best beer match listed.
