Tried this for the first time and was very impressed. Great selection of orders. Bought 6 from the 9 different selections for £19.90. Really nice. I would advise this for groups who want to try a bit of everything

Went here bank holiday Monday with family. The food was cooked to perfection and well presented. Drinks a bit slow in coming but overall an excellent lunch time trip. Would recommend

It's been a while since I last ate at The Keys, but on my return I was thoroughly impressed. I chose to eat from the Evening Specials menu, just had the two courses which were great and cheap too. Staff were spot on, great service. I'll be back sooner rather than later.

My partner ordered a 'steak and ale pie' with mash and veg; whilst I ordered a Parma with homemade chips. I say a 'steak and ale pie' because theyre was barely any meat, the pastry was thin, hard and dry, the veg had seen brighter days and it was a joke! His meal was inedible!

Took the children along with a friend for afternoon tea but left bitterly disappointed. My friend and the children had ordered the afternoon tea whilst I ordered off the main menu I requested all the food be brought at the same time. Waited about 15minutes for the drinks to be brought to the table. My meal arrived about 25 mins... More

Food was ok but certainly spoiled by the wait for everything. Waited nearly half an hour for starters. Then another 20 minutes for mains and considering we had hungry children they really were climbing the walls by that point. Then deserts took about the same again. Staff were pretty pleasant and the price was reasonable for what we got but... More

My first order, the pie and mash, was inedible. The steak pieces were dry, the pastry looked like it had been cooked yesterday and the so called fresh vegetables were clearly past their best date and over cooked. Luckily, the waitress was happy to exchange my meal. The second meal was brought over by the manager who was rude and... More

Had lunch here last Sunday in the rear garden. Great food, amazing staff, so friendly and take time to look after you even though they were very busy. My dog was made to feel really welcome in the garden too! Will definitely be going back in the near future. Keep up the amazing work!!!
