Visited with our daughter and parents in law and there was something on the menu for us all. We were able to take our dog and every one of us was made to feel very welcome.

We planned to go to have some snack and beer in our lunchtime break. We went there for our beer and snacks which was amazing. Service was also great with smile. Will be visiting soon.

We often eat here when we are down in Wareham during the summer, and are never disappointed by the food or the staff. Already looking forward to the next time .

An average lunch in an average setting. The location in a beautiful area is ideal for passing trade but it was almost empty.

Whilst out on a walk near Arne we were thirsty so did a detour to this pub for drinks. It was a Saturday and very busy, lots of people eating and no tables available inside. As it was a nice day we were happy to sit outside. Had to queue at the bar to order drinks. Staff were friendly despite... More

The staff here are genuinely friendly and attentive. Dogs are very welcome too. The pub has a nice atmosphere too. Sadly our food was average probably at best (we had sirloin steak) and a little pricey (it cost almost £20) and wasn't very tasty. However, I couldn't speak more highly of the staff, they were great.

Lovely atmosphere, ultra friendly staff and a great menu. Dog friendly too so a massive bonus. He laid quietly until the... More

A group of 6 this time, we were early for eating but service was good and the food excellent. Drinks order was wrong and the young barman didn't seem keen to put it right even for the children. Would've been full 5 stars otherwise.

My wife and I just wanted a value evening meal to round off our stay in Wareham. Visited Halfway for just a drink on several occasions, so we thought we would try the food. We both ordered sausages, not our usual choice but looked good on the menu, and on placing our order waiter confirmed fresh veg. included which clinched... More
