Whether you simply come in for a coffee or light lunch, or order from our daily specials menu, we guarantee you’ll approve of the quality of our meals and service.British favourites with a twist sit beautifully next to wonderful Mediterranean choices. With an emphasis on seasonality and locality and a commitment to simple cooking using fresh produce, the menu includes a wide range of light bites and more substantial offerings.The Keys’ Sunday lunches are said to be the best in the area and feature a choice of four locally- sourced meats, homemade Yorkshire puddings and sausage meat stuffing, served with seasonal vegetables and roast potatoes, all at a very reasonable price.The Keys is child-friendly and open to group bookings, it’s the perfect place for your get-togethers and family gatherings.Our teatime special menu is now available very week day evening from 5-9pm

From the moment we walked in we were greeted with a smile! Our drinks came quickly and I was very impressed with the knowledge of the waiter as he didn't even require a menu! My wife and I both chose a sirloin steak and both were cooked to perfection. Not the first time we have been, but with the standards... More

I've been to the Keys previously and enjoyed the experience, service and food, so I returned without any hesitation....how wrong could I have been!! Firstly, the wrong drinks were served, which wasn't complicated...One glass of Red Wine and one Coke. Easy enough, but White wine was served. This was rectified immediately. All good, now for the menu. We both ordered... More

Went to Keys for their tea time special, regular customers and very good food as always, however disappointing staff attitude. My husband asked for a 2nd San Miguel and when tasted it, it was very sweet tasted like Cider. Mentioned it to waitress who disagreed and said that it could only be San Miguel as she had pulled it personally,... More

For a very very popular pub in Yarm - this is where it is at. Excellently friendly staff, good menu and reasonably priced, contemporary shop fitted out and a brilliant out door area for smokers. Can't fault it at all - if you want a decent pint or cocktail and a lively scene - go at the weekend at night... More
