We visited during Yarn Fair and were blown away with the exceptional standard of service. They were amazing towards my son and the best service we received this weekend came from here. Thank you.

The Keys fully sponsored our recent corporate breakfast meeting organised by Butterwick Hospice. An opportunity for local business people to network in a friendly and informal atmosphere. We enjoy a delicious breakfast, served by attentive and friendly staff. Would certainly recommend The Keys for your business entertaining.

Lovely bar/restaurant, serves a beautiful afternoon tea and is very popular. Looks quite small from the street but stretches a long way back and also has a garden area.

As regulars from yarm we are highly disappointed with the afternoon tea we recieved.very poor quality and tasteless. We have been before but it just was not what we expected on this visit. Sorry to say but the group of us will be giving afternoon teas a miss from now on in the keys.

It's always a decent choice when we go to the keys for lunch or dinner. In Summer the beer garden is a lovely spot for lunch if you can find a seat. The food is always delicious and reasonable value! The service is always polite enough but is often slow especially in busy periods, this is usually made up by... More

The only reason we keep persisting with this restaurant is because of the beer garden, however every time we leave disappointed. The service is friendly but unbelievably slow and the food is so inconsistent. Most recently I had a panini that wasn't at all toasted, just a sandwich in a dry and stale bun.

After a disappointing meal here some time ago we decided to give it another try. It was early evening so nice and quiet which suits us fine. My friend and I both ate of the early bird menu and agreed the food was tasty and good value. The interior is pleasant and staff attentive. Glad we gave it another try... More

With its fantastic setting in the heart of Yarm High Street, The Keys has always been famed for its nightlife, but recently it is the quiet revival of the restaurant that has had people talking.Coupling friendly attentive service with a warm, homely feel, The Keys has continued to fine tune its menu to the highest standard. Whether you simply come in for a coffee or light lunch, or order from our daily specials menu, we guarantee you’ll approve of the quality of our meals and service.British favourites with a twist sit beautifully next to wonderful Mediterranean choices. With an emphasis on seasonality and locality and a commitment to simple cooking using fresh produce, the menu includes a wide range of light bites and more substantial offerings.The Keys’ Sunday lunches are said to be the best in the area and feature a choice of four locally- sourced meats, homemade Yorkshire puddings and sausage meat stuffing, served with seasonal vegetables and roast potatoes, all at a very reasonable price.The Keys is child-friendly and open to group bookings, it’s the perfect place for your get-togethers and family gatherings.Our teatime special menu is now available very week day evening from 5-9pm
