With its fantastic setting in the heart of Yarm High Street, The Keys has always been famed for its nightlife, but recently it is the quiet revival of the restaurant that has had people talking.Coupling friendly attentive service with a warm, homely feel, The Keys has continued to fine tune its menu to the highest standard. 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

We often pop here for an early tea and always get great food and service. The menu is extensive and is good value for money too.

After visiting The Keys today with my girlfriend, we had Sunday lunch and it was spot on! Meat cooked perfectly with excellent jus and full of flavour! The dessert was mocha creme brûlée, and sticky toffee pudding! Pint of black sheep ale...perfect! Definately worth a visit. We will be returning!

Visit the keys on a regular basis of drunks but never tried the food until last summer. We wanted to try somewhere different in yarm but still sit in the sun and enjoy the nice weather while it lasted. Sitting out the back in the beer garden was lovely, comfy table and chairs and not too crammed in. The food... More

Stopped here for a late lunch after the football in Middlesbrough. Yarm is an upmarket town, so no wonder this pub on the High Street is top class. We arrived at 3.30pm & the place was packed. Ordered the Chicken Parmesan, which I think is a local speciality? It was absolutely delicious, although it's a decedent dish, you don't want... More

The dinner menu was exquisite, something you would expect in a fine dining restaurant. The only reason we came to the keys was due to us stopping with family with us being from Leeds. The crayfish...
