Great Meal and Service

I went for a meal with friends the other week and it was great. Top quality food, good value and top notch service. The garden out back is especially good and adds a lot to the venue. I'll definitely be visiting again soon.

I am a regular at The Keys in Yarm. But I feel when people bend over backwards to make your visit special something should be said. I visited yesterday with a large group of friends and the food, service and attention to detail to make my friends welcome and our visit special was amazing. Micheal, Bec, Tasha and Leanne all...

I spent a great evening over the weekend with friends at The Keys. During the summer, the beer garden helps make the Keys the go to venue in Yarm. Unlike most beer gardens it is clean, modern and comfortable.. Though it was busy we had no problems getting great table service from the courteous staff. Leanne and Rebecca prominent. Food... More

Very good steaks with chips, salad and a bottle of wine. Very good value for the price (£25). However, once again not enough carbs to feel fully satisfied with the meal. More chips please!

Spent an evening here with friends. We had drinks first which were reasonably priced and decided to stay for a meal. The service seemed a little slow and the waitress easily confused. Overall the food was ok although pizza was dry and my one of my friends had to send back her steak as very tough.
