Description: We are pleased to announce that, on the 2nd October 2016, we opened a second 'Halfway Inn' in the grounds of The Hill Resort, Patong, which is 400 metres past Simon Cabaret on the left hand side of the road heading South towards Karon, directly opposite PS Hill Resort. To avoid confusion the new place is known as 'Halfway Inn - The Hill Resort' on Facebook and the old place is known as 'Halfway Inn Bar, Patong'. The indoor covered restaurant has a very traditional Thai theme with 10 individual 6 seater salas (bamboo huts) for 60 diners, 12 standard tables providing seating for 48 customers, and a central 'Bamboo Bar' with stools for around 20 punters. There is also a large sports bar area with 2 pool tables, 2 large screen TV's, a 2 metre wide projector screen and enough space for a 5 piece live band. Outside there are a further 3 salas with seating for 18 customers and what will be a covered BBQ sala. There is spacious off-road parking for up to 4 cars (or minibuses) and 30 motorbikes and easy access North (towards Phuket Town and Kamala) or South (towards Karon, Kata, Chalong and Rawai). There is also an access ramp for disabled customers at The Hill Resort reception steps (although, admittedly, it needs some improvement). Customers, old and new, will welcome the fact that we have paid attention to the few negative reviews we have received on TripAdvisor (and constructive criticism from our regulars). There is now much more space between different dining groups, excellent washroom facilities, and (optional) segregation between the restaurant and sports bar areas (in one half you can enjoy watching live sports while dining and listening to the music whereas the other area is a bit more private). There are also comfortable rooms available at The Hill Resort, which is currently being renovated, bookings can be made online or in person. Bed and Breakfast prices are reasonable, the pool and rainforest surroundings are very pleasant, with a swim up bar, jacuzzi pool and kids pool. Some of the rooms on the upper levels have views over Patong Bay. Nan is enthused by the fact that can now create her mouth-watering dishes from a very large, modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, the size of our existing restaurant / bar area in Soi Kepsap. We are both excited by the opportunities this new property offers and we trust that all our customers, old and new, will enjoy their visit here.

Most likely in the top 5 bar/restaurants in all Patong. Free BBQ 3 days a week, pool competitions and a great Thai menu. Heaps of fun and a great atmosphere. Pop in and say hi to Dave and Nan.

My boyfriend and I walked pass this place while making our way to the beach. The A - League fixture got our attention. Stopped by to have a grub. Food was very good! Both of the owners, Dave and Nan were very welcoming! Thanks very much guys. We will be back. Look forward to enjoying your Elvis live music again.

Best wishes,

Luke and Peach xx

We stopped by here for a drink and it was a night when they put on a free BBQ for guests drinking there. My husband enjoyed the BBQ immensely, best sausages he had tasted for quite awhile. I couldn't eat because I had Gastro and just sipped on lemonade. Great cold beer and good fun atmosphere, sorry we didn't get to try their Thai food.

Decided to visit the Halfway Inn on my recent trip to Patong after reading some positive reviews on Trip Advisor and recognized it from a previous visit.
Dave and Nan are such lovely hosts and make you feel most welcome.
The food and hospitality is second to none and I will continue to frequent this establishment whenever visiting Patong.

I stumbled upon this place last year and I had to revisit again this year. The welcome smile and great food from Dave and Nan make this place incredible. On your own or with company you are always made to feel at home. Free BBQ food select nights (Sun, Tue, Thur at the moment) as well as a full and fantastic menu means you can enjoy a great atmosphere and well priced food and drink as well as a game of pool. Definitely worth looking for! You won't be sorry!
Thanks for the hospitality shown Dave! See you next time.
