For a long time, I didn't naturally make the connection between The Keys (nightclub) and high quality bistro fayre. However, this is a place well worth visiting. The food is excellent, the presentation is high quality and the service - always with a smile - is some of the best in the area. The Keys genuinely is one of the... More

Went to the keys on Sunday for lunch and don't have a bad word to say. My wife had fishcakes to start and she said they were delicious and the poached egg was perfect. I had the pate, which was also tasty. For main course we both had pork loin with crackling. Must say it was the best pork we... More

You can always rely on excellent service and food at The Keys. The staff are first rate and Mary as per normal receives top marks, however on this visit Sean was the star member of staff. Muscles starter was divine and the Sunday Roast Beef just as we've come to expect over many visits. 10/10

Took my mum here for dinner and the food was lovely! We shared sweet potato wedges and haddock fish cake to start, the wedges were huge and a decent portion. Then we both had steak for main and neither of us could fault it, simply delicious. Don't eat a lot in the keys but will definitely be returning

On entering, the pub is dominated by individual booths some informal seating and a few tables. All of which are very... More
