A great traditional pub in the city centre, a stone's throw from the Minster. Good beer (Sharps, from Cornwall!) and great, simple pub food for a low price (especially for York city centre!) Would definitely go back here.

This is the best fry up in the city centre! A really good and very large breakfast with high quality ingredients for a bargain price. You want a tasty treat to set you up for the day? Cross Keys is your place.
