The Cross Keys, Leeds

This ‘traditional’ pub has actually only been open a few years as it’s part of the regeneration and creation of ‘Holbeck Urban Village’. I was told by the developers that part of the planning deal for the entire mixed use development, it had to include a old fashioned pub.

Well it was certainly a good move.

The Cross Keys is a welcome break from ‘style bars’ and is an enjoyably authentic place for a few beers after work or a longer session with food thrown in for good measure. A couple of weekends ago, the boy and I were in town for  few cheeky ones and decided to meet J&L for a light lunch and a beer or two.

The corned beef hash came highly recommended – so it had to be that washed down with a few pints of ‘Night Screamer’ (or something similar). The portions were very generous and it was a great value lunch – the price is definitely right in The Cross Keys.
