Visited this establishment as the venue next door was full. The food was ok but certainly nothing exceptional when you consider the prices charged. The setting was pleasant with a nice rear open garden area. The Posh fish finger sandwich was ok with the fish fingers made presumably in the kitchen.

Colleagues and myself went for a meal after work, we found the menu had a good variety of choice for all. I choose the Steak n Ale pie, the pastry was beautiful, no soggy bottom in sight, the pie filling was really tasty, the accompanying vegetables cooked well. The sticky toffee pudding was 'very nice' and finished off a very... More

As a regular visitor to the Keys, we decided to celebrate our anniversary and have lunch there. Despite being only a handful of people there, we had to wait 30 minutes for a simple food order. The steak in the sandwich was not a cut we could identify and tasted awful, On the plus side, the staff were really attentive.... More

Great menu, very good quality food and served with a smile. Great chilled summer atmosphere, busy in the summer sun or shade, really impressed for a mid... More

For a Saturday afternoon this place was in a state. From ordering drinks which took 45 minuets to arrive and three visits to the bar to ask where they were, to queuing 15 minuets just to pay! People were just waking out. Staff didn't seem to have a clue of thier roles and the system at the bar was ridiculous... More

We go to the Keys on a regular basis either for a drink or food and a drink. The terrace at the back of the keys is particularly nice on a sunny day. In the past I have posted on behalf of the Keys two 5 star reviews regarding the food and service. If I have a one off bad... 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
