About The Cross Keys
As you step through the door of The Cross Keys you are instantly transported from the hubbub of the city, into a welcoming inn that could be miles away from anywhere, complete with gleaming beer pumps, cosy little alcoves and roaring fires. In the summer our courtyard provides a sun drenched sanctuary from the city centre.
Built in 1802, The Cross Keys was a watering hole for local foundry workers and houses a colourful history. We hope you’ll agree we’ve captured some of the tradition of the past whilst bringing the standards we’ve set at the North Bar Group to bring excellent service, food and drinks to you.
Winner of numerous accoloades, the Pub has won ‘Best Sunday Lunch’ in Leeds Award and has been runner up in the Observer Food Monthly awards on three occasions.
The James Watt Room provides a unique and individual setting any event and what better place than a 200 year old inn?! Steeped in history with original beams and tastefully decorated, The James Watt Room is the perfect venue for your wedding reception, Birthday, AGM, or conference.
