Eat here about once a month and always find the staff welcoming. Have never been able to fault the food and there is a good selection of drinks available.

Went to The Keys for breakfast as was feeling too lazy to cook after a late night out. The full English breakfast was huge, crispy bacon, the works. Definitely worth the money and kept us all going all day.

Wonderful food, service and value. We visited on a Friday evening early doors. Would highly recommend if you just want to pop in for good value. Presented beautifully and was absolutely delicious. Well done to the servicing staff too, very pleasant and helpful.
