About Us

The former Mechanics Institute Darlington, built in 1854 is now home to The Keys Restaurant & Institute Nightclub.

After an extensive refurbishment to the grade ll listed building - The Keys opened its doors in November 2014.

The large restaurant area is perfect for dining, group dining & hire for any occasion.

At The Keys Darlington, you'll find a range of seasonal menus available, with freshly delivered and prepared ingredients - you'll be sure to find a dish to suit your taste.

At The Keys Darlington, we believe that the drinks selection is just as important as the food.  

We serve a range of soft drinks to premium beers, spirits & cocktails.
