“Excellent meal experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Reserved a table with a groupon voucher for Saturday lunchtime @ 1:00 pm. Place was packed with a queue. Seated and served within 15 mins; chose from the menu - very good choice - all well cooked - service was excellent.

Would certainly re-visit

“Had lunch and was excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Bought a Groupon for lunch, and not been before. The venue is under a Church in the cellar and was really well done out. The food was very good and so was the service. It was not the cheapest place we have been, but you get what you pay for, and this was worth every penny. We will definatley return here in the future!

“Nice building, no problems but no wow factor either”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Had lunch here...obviously busy and popular. Nice location in centre of town and in crypt but felt ambience needed updating. Staff helpful and friendly but little lacking in training..reaching across in front of diners and dropping spoons on to table rather than placing them carefully.
Food was fine but nothing special. Would go again but with lower expectations. We are not local so its high ratings may reflect how it compares with other local eateries.

“Lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The Keys in in the crypt of the parish church. The staff are very friendly and give good service. The food is very good - everything from sandwiches to main meals. They do some good special evening menus with entertainment. We've seen Phil Bates and Mik Kaminski's beatles Blues and Blue Violin tour there a number of times. Only disadvantage is the access - it's down steep steps and there doesnt appear to be any disabled access

“Quirky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Excellent value for money, particularly when they have live music in an evening. Good service and attentive host.
