Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had a great evening at The Midway in Stockport last night. The food was brilliant, very tasty, piping hot and good sized portions. Homely surroundings, comfortable seating and clean. The staff were very attentive, pleasant and cheerful .We will definitely be going back 👍.

The worst meal I have ever had never mind paid for. My wife had a chicken sandwich which comprised of raw chicken, two slabs of raw onion and regular bacon not rashers but breakfast Bacon so as you can imagine fat of which was rather...like sinue. Inedible fish which they have decided to die the batter with turmeric which gives the fish a paracetamol powdery flavour and reasonable chips. When I asked why the fish batter was yellow I was pretty much told to fool punters into believing it is better quality than it is. Staff disinterested from the outset far more interested in chatty to one another or eating themselves.More

After calling on the off chance a few months ago when we thoroughly enjoyed the Steak and Frites for lunch, we returned yesterday to try them again. We were served by Ange both times, who remembered us from the previous visit. She took our order...with a smile, and didn’t need to explain how the steak was served (which, as it is cooked French style, very thin with garlic) she normally does. The meal was served fairly quickly and was as good if not better than the previous time. The steak is battered and griddled with tons of garlic and the Parmesan fries are the perfect accompaniment - no condiments or accompaniments required. This was followed by the lightest, tastiest-home made tiramisu, that we have tasted. The chefs, we met Ivo yesterday, come across as very skilled with consistent qualities and we will be happy to taste more of their creations.More

Not as good as it was before it changed hands. Chips weren’t cooked properly, custard thin, generally an average meal. Which is a shame, as it used to be exceptional.

I had roast beef, it was melt in your mouth gorgeous, didn't need a knife to cut it. Enough veg, loads of potatoes and massive Yorkshire puddings, with plenty of gravy, delicious. Will be coming back

Recently had the pleasure of visiting the Midway Pub with a group of 14 for my daughters birthday, it was an unforgettable experience. From the moment we walked in, Carmen and Marcello greeted us with warmth and made us feel so very welcomed. They truly...went above and beyond in their service. The atmosphere of the pub was inviting and lively, creating the perfect setting for a memorable birthday evening. The food was absolutely amazing, each meal bursting with flavour and cooked to perfection. I can’t recommend this place enough and am eagerly looking forward to my next visit. The Midway Pub is a true gem!More

First time under the new owners and a huge dissapointment. Me and my partner both had the steak with Parmesan chips. Steak was poor and huge mound of Parmesan chips. For £17.95 expected a lot more. Will not be going back to a place I’ve...been visiting for many many years.More

Have been eating at the Midway for many years. First time back since new owners took over and far from impressed. Went for my go to option fish and chips and not a patch on the old Midway. Don’t think we will rush back

We booked here as a Christmas meal for 7 of us, were told couldn’t order from the festive menu as it was pre order but could have a roast dinner from the main menu! My friends had different meals I had a roast £17.95 …...cold hard roast potatoes (frozen in my opinion) around 5 carrots, small stuffing ball and a pig in a blanket ( about an inch in length) mash of some description? , pre sliced turkey and 2 small parsnips and so much gravy it was poring off my plate ! My friends said their food okay. I was speechless.. We had a dessert, £7.95 for sticky toffee pudding and custard, it had been sat under the hot plate and the custard had a skin on it From hearing such good reports from people I was so excited ! But truly disappointed.. I won’t be returningMore
