About the Pub

DEMOLISHED & redeveloped; now a Danish bakery/coffee/fast-food shop. Previous pub description follows.

There is the "St Christopher's Cellar Bar" in the basement which can be hired for functions. Dating from 1766 and named after a Yorkshire castle, known as the “key to the north” because of its strategic position, where Richard II was murdered in 1399.
