Sunday dinner

My boyfriend and I came to the keys for a Sunday dinner and we were not disappointed in the slightest. The presentation was lovely and the food was delicious. I would especially recommend the rhubarb crumble as a dessert as it was amazing!

Helpful attentive staff food as described in the menu had a very nice relaxed meal with friends. The Keys is a very popular evening night venue although easily adapted to a lunchtime venue.

I took a group of over 30 staff to The Keys for our Christmas party. We had a brilliant time, very organised and efficient from the moment of booking, through the pre orders and to the end of the night itself. Food was good quality and the service was excellent. They really took care of us. The reasonable price per... More

Very impressed an excellent range of sandwiches, cakes and endless supply of tea and coffee. The place was absolutely packed which made a great atmosphere.

Having been to the Keys in Yarm for a 3 course meal and event myself and my guest were left a little disappointed. I voiced my opinions and was assisted with fantastically. Ben from the Keys in Yarm arranged a afternoon tea in Darlington (as that's where we are from) as way of an apology and it was super. Credit... More

My friend and I popped into the keys over the Christmas holidays as she decided she fancied a cocktail, I'm not really a cocktail person but as I was trying to decide without success a lovely bar member introduced himself as Dean and asked if I needed any help with my choice, I thought this was a lovely gesture as...

I came here this evening with a few of my friends. We were not greeted and told to sit at a table so we just found a free table and sat down. We sat for about 10 minutes without anybody coming over to ask us if we wanted any drinks or even menus. We went up to the bar to... More

We seem to have had an unlucky afternoon. After leaving one establishment that didn't have the full compliment of drinks available we moved on to The Keys. All was fine bar the request for a hot chocolate with marshmallows. Alas they had run out of marshmallows. Fair enough & it's a small point but all about the detail - is... More
