The Original Keys pub on Market Place in Driffield recently reopened following a major investment of £200,000.

The pub is part of the Proper Pubs division at Admiral Taverns and has undergone a transformation to create a brand-new look for the Yorkshire local.

Inside, the venue has been completely transformed, featuring a new bar, flooring and furniture throughout. Outside, The Original Key’s garden has been renovated, which includes new-signage, lighting and furniture.

For opening night, customers enjoyed a prosecco reception and live music from X Factor contestant Samantha Atkinson. The pub was officially opened by the local mayoress councillor Gillian Helliwell.

"Opening night was fantastic, it was amazing to see all our customers, old and new, coming to see what the pub has to offer," says operator Jeni Weaver. "The feedback we received from our community was amazing, and we can’t wait to see them again soon."

Full sports package

The Original Keys provides a full sports package of Sky Sports, TNT Sports and Horse Racing, as well hosting a darts team. The pub also has an annual schedule of events for the community to enjoy, such as regular quiz and karaoke nights. 

"The refurbishment at The Original Keys looks fantastic – the team have worked really hard to ensure it is a success for the local community," says Matthew Gurney, operations director for Proper Pubs. "On behalf of the Proper Pubs team, we would like to wish our community hero, Jeni, every success for the future in making The Original Keys a fantastic hub of the community."
