Had breakfast in the keys at the weekend and the service is slow and the food is average. Coffees took 25 minutes to arrive. They need to sort their act out. They've got a prime setup that is currently going to waste.

Description
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
