We have eaten at the Halfway House on numerous occasions and have always been impressed by the quality of food. This time was no exception. Our orders were taken promptly, and our food came soon after, and we enjoyed really tasty meals. We have also , on a different occasion, tried the banquet. That was absolutely excellent, with a great selection of foods and beautiful presentation. I really wouldn't hesitate to fully recommend the brilliant Halfway House.

We ordered the banquet for 21 family members and were most impressed by the quality of the food ,the variety, the service ,and the value for money .the staff went overboard for us by preparing the decor,and making us very welcome. The banquet was excellent and suited all tastes
We have eaten here many times before and have never been disappointed.

Our Wedding Reception was recently held here and it could not have been better. The food and service were excellent. The staff made every effort to make it exactly as we wanted it, they decorated the room beautifully and the attention to detail was exceptional. All of our guests have said they will definately be eating here again.
We have also had meals in the restaurant previously and it has always been to a very high standard.
We cannot thank the staff, particularly Mark, at The Halfway house enough.

I've been to this pub on 2 occasions now, and been horribly disappointed twice now....I won't be back again.

I had heard high praise for this restaurant/pub from other people....granted they had been during the day. We went at night and were looking forward to a .ovely meal, nice atmosphere, and good ale/wine.

Unfortunately,( when we could get around ignorant customers to get to the bar) we were told there were no tables free to eat at, despite being sat at one in the restaurant area. When I enquired about food, we were harshly told they weren't doing food....then they served a table of 8 and a table of 4 sat around us with food.

It may be the owners weren't there, and it may be the regulars don't like outside customers but it was an uncomfortable and dire experience not to be repeated. I hope other future customers get treated better than we were.
