Ate here on a Saturday tea time very average food I thought! For the price I'd expect a bit better! Rissoto was like rice pudding, tandoori flat bread was dry with too much yoghurt. Chips were nice and my son's fish was good (nice light batter), drinks were ok and the staff were friendly would come again for drinks.

Met up with 6 in laws and friends for lunch on a Friday. Yarm is lovely but the Keys is on the High Street and parking is an abomination. There are no car parks only parking on the cobbles surrounding the main square and all these were taken.Took 20 minutes to find a place. If ever a town needed a... More

Had a lovely lunch here last week with my boyfriend. Food was really nice and the staff helpful and friendly even when I was making requests to change items on the menu the woman (didn't catch her name) was very attentive and even checked with the kitchen to see if it was possible instead of just presuming it wasn't possible!...

Came here on a works lads night out. Modern bar with good service and a good range of beers and lagers. No issues whilst we were here (compared to another place we visited on the same night). Worth using as a meeting place and also a mid night drinking place. Not sure how busy it gets later on!

Visited for a late lunch with my partner on Friday. Although the restaurant was busy we were quickly and comfortably seated and drinks were brought promptly. The burgers were lovely; and served with the minor modifications we'd requested. Our server Karen was a delight; charming and personable with the perfect balance of friendly and professional.

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
