“Hidden gem!”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Having time to spare before we had to return our narrowboat we decided to explore the village of St. Martins. About half a mile from the canal we discovered The Keys, we didn't actually eat there but we saw the food being served and perused the menu , both looked excellent. Even though we didn't eat there I nevertheless feel the pub is worth a mention as it is exceptional in both presentation and standards of cleanliness. On initial entry the place is immaculate, freshly decorated throughout and the WC's look as though they were installed yesterday they were so fresh and clean.
An excellent range of real ales were on offer and the young lady behind the bar was especially friendly and welcoming. We will be visiting again and will certainly be trying the fayre on offer this time.

“Good food good price”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon, and even though they were hosting a christening which took up the back garden, they found room for six of us in a table in the bar. Everything we ordered off the extensive menu was very good. Sunday beef roasts, ham sandwiches and salad, Plaice chips and beans, Salmon fillet, and Veggie bake, everything was presented well, and tasty too. Normally I'm a little worried when there's such a big menu, but this was great. You could get a small discount by choosing two meals off a selected part of the menu too, but roughly starters were £3-4 and mains £7-8. Drinks were very reasonably priced, e.g. £1 for a half of lemonade where most places would charge you £2. We'll definitely be back. The only thing to note is the opening times - they do stop serving a little earlier than most places.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

We visited the keys for a birthday party last night, we were not the only large party there, however the staff were attentive and polite, the food was incredible, despite the other large party ordering at a similar time to us, both parties received their food quickly and everything was correct.
The starters were wonderful. from the soup of the day to the pate and everything in between was just perfect. as we had my young daughter with us they offered for her meal to come out with the starters, it was a perfect portion size for her, the chicken nuggets appeared to be home made and were delicious, i have never seen her enjoy a meal so much.
The adult main courses were incredible, everything was cooked perfectly and the order was correct to the last detail (even the strange changes to the menu items).
The portion sizes were amazing, i had the mixed grill which was a challenge not for the feint of heart. each part of the mixed grill was cooked beautifully, i can not remember a better one ever!
The sizzling platter my wife to be had was beautiful, she enjoyed every second of it.
As it was my fiancée's birthday i could not have been happier with everything,
A big thank you to all the staff that made the night an unforgettable one.
We will be back for more very soon!!!
