The Cross Keys is one of a few pubs situated behind Leeds train station.
The front door to this pub was closed when i visited on an early Saturday evening,but when i tried the door handle it opened.
Once inside there are two rooms either side of the front door,the seating is comfy bench type chairs plus normal tables and chairs.
There was a good choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of North Brewery Prototype which went down very well,the other beers noted were Anorchy Quiet Riot,Abbeydale Absolution and one from Thornebridge.
The pub was packed with all people drinking,the drinkers did seem a lot more upmarket than you get in most pubs.
It seemed quite a cosy and comfortable pub to have a drink in.

I visited the Cross Keys with Ray who has commented below and I also felt uncomfortable as I walked in and was asked whether I was dining. We stood outside for a moment thinking that the pub was closed, but thankfully some local diners with knowledge of how doors operate walked in before us. This pub is in the Michelin guide so it is obvious that eating takes precedence over drinking, but there are four hand pumps on the bar alongside some premium draught products. I went for half a Prototype which went down well.
The interior is split into two with a small dining area to the left of the entrance and the bar area with seating to the right. Stairs behind the bar lead up to the toilets and there is a room upstairs that is used for functions.
There is a weekly quiz on Sundays.

There was nothing wrong with the beer, but I prefer a proper boozer so I would probably give this place the swerve if in the area again.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Cross Keys

This pub was quite busy with people dining on our lunchtime visit. I felt a little uncomfortable at first, as two members of staff asked were we here for food or were we drinking, as though they didn't want people just coming in for a drink. There was a choice of 4 ales on the board, we tried the Kirkstall North Prototype, which was decent and reasonably priced. Was worth the visit for the beer alone.
