    Always amazing food and great, friendly service at the Halfway House! (Even when members of staff have to deal with unpleasant customers just because the lettuce leaf wasn't the right one for them....) Food portions are always more than enough and great value for money! Never any issues with this place! Look forward to returning again very soon!

    We had a super Sunday lunch. Great portion sizes (just right) with a delicious selection of vegetables. Of course, plenty of gravy too! The team were well-supervised, efficient and friendly. Food & drinks arrived promptly. We will definitely return. This time we will bring some cash for a tip too! Thank you to the team at Halfway House.

    Food was enjoyed by all 3 of us but there could be alot more meet free options available. Things don't have to be vegan or vegetarian as alot of people just don't eat meat, vegetable lasagne, pasta's or pizzas are simple enough, would visit regularly if more of these options were available.

    Lovely meal and great value. Asked for an extra item which was no bother at all but I wish they would ask if you want pepper on your egg as I had to send it back as I can’t eat pepper. Would recommend.

    As always the food was outstanding, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was fantastic. The Roast beef was perfection. Wish this place had a larger function room, would definitely book it for family functions or even our wedding reception next year. This place never disappoints and the staff are always so accommodating.

    Friendly staff, food was OK pub food and due to being milk intolerant most I fancied contained cheese or milk etc. But they were very happy to do some without. Went to see the band really, Akoustek, who are very good. I was pleased that band nights have started again in what is for us a fairly local pub. It was a shame though more were not there for the band. Most must have just come for a meal. As before the band came on while everyone was eating it was packed, not a free table. But when they had finished eating most left and the few that stayed after the band started, left shortly. This was not because the band wasn't good, it was very good. But because most were there to eat only. So the band ended up plying to mostly themselves. Hopefully in future when they have a band on more will stay to see it.
