The real beauty of The Keys on a Sunday is you can walk in off the street, unannounced without a booking and 9 times out of 10 get a cracking table and matching lunch. Served by Emilie who was just lovely. Keep it up guys as you're the Sunday lunch benchmark for me!

I visit the keys often and have visited for all occasions and have never been let down by either the quality of the food served or by the quality of service both have been excellent. Whether I have been out for a meal with the hubby, drinks and snacks with the girls or treating my two young daughters to a... More

Have eaten at The Keys on a couple of occasions lately whilst in Yarm following reading reviews on TripAdvisor, we haven't been disappointed. The food is delicious & portions generous, service is friendly & the seating area out back very relaxing. Look forward to returning.

Had not been to the keys for a while but called in Thursday night for a family supper. As was the case in previous visits was greeted by a courteous and friendly member of staff and shown to the table of our choice overlooking the splendid garden area. The starters were delivered to us promptly and were well presented .... More

I have just visited The Keys for lunch and once again found everything fantastic. From the minute we arrived we were felt welcome by the attentive staff. We had the Classic Fish Pie and the Slow Cooked Belly pork, both were divine. Can't wait for our next visit.
