“This place is fantastic”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

The food, service and ambience were top class here on a Monday night, which is rare for the majority of restaurants in West Berkshire. Undoubtedly the best dining experience I've had in the area. The staff are absolutely fantastic. Loved it so much I'm going again tonight and will hopefully be leaving another positive review!

“The Wow Factor”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Visited this restaurant 19th June for a Hen Party. There were thirteen of us and it was the best experience ever - will definitely be going back !!!!
Lovely staff NOTHING was too much trouble. Their customer service was second to none. They
accommodated the need for a half portion with no issues at all. Very pleasant setting inside and out. The restaurant was very busy even though it was a Wednesday night which I think says it all !!!!!
When the food came out it definitely had the WOW factor. It was presented magnificently we were looking round to see what friends were having. I don't think I have ever been to such an amazing restaurant before. Everything was home-made as such - tartare sauce was NOT out of a jar. The chips came in a little wire basket the same shape as you would have in your deep fat fryer so quirky just adds to the feel that they care about their customers.
Anyone reading this review do not think twice this is the place to eat believe me. We are definitely going back SOON I hope.
1000% guys and girls you deserve it. Keep up the amazing work you will be able to retire early !!!!!!

“Recently refurbished and much improved”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

As it was a pleasant summer evening and we had a birthday to celebrate we decided to drive the short distance to this inn at Halfway on the Bath Road. It has recently been acquired by Hall & Woodhouse (Badger beer) and completely refurbished while still retaining the small lounge bar at the front of house. It is an enormous improvement.
We thought by going early we could get in before the eight o'clock rush but judging by the fact that they were fully booked suggest this is popular place. Nevertheless they were able to give us a table on the patio for a quick supper which suited us just fine.
This is a friendly establishment with a range of dishes to suit all taste not forgetting the excellent beers available. The portions are generous so much so that I had to ask for a doggy bag for some of my traditional pub burger having asked for the beef patty to be replaced by a chicken breast.
To add to the atmosphere, in the lounge, squeezed in, was a pianist playing a baby grand piano to which I listened whilst waiting to pay for the meal.
All in all, a great place for a casual meal at any time and for any occasion.
