Visited this great pub last week with my twin brother and our partners. The food was excellent and would definitely return for another go at some delicious food. I myself had a jack stack starter and followed by the venison 10/10 guys loved it. Just one small criticism check everything is on the menu as my husband was a bit... More

Booked in one night stop due to wedding in area. Glad we did, little gem of a place, room good size, very clean and mixture of old fashioned with plenty of real wood and modern bathroom. You could smell the wood polish as you entered the room, lovely. Separate entrance to pub so could come and go at any time... More

This part of Wales lags behind most of the rest of the UK in most pubs being old fashioned (not in the good way) serving largely unhomemade food in big portions at surprisingly high prices. Halfway House wasn't perfect but it was above average for the area, even if that lags behind the rest of the UK. Some efforts had... More

We came here as a large family group for a last minute Sunday lunch. They were more than accommodating for our big group. We all had Sunday lunch, which had plenty of variety to pick from. There was plenty of vegetables and gravy to go round for us all. Prices were reasonable for the size of the lunch you get.... More

We stayed at the Halfway house when visiting our family in the area. We were greeted by friendly staff and shown or room which was airy and quite spacious with a nice shower ensuite. The pub is very pleasant and we enjoyed an evening drink in the pub. The pub has a very nice garden with play area for children.... More

Since moving recently to the area we realised there aren't many nice `country' pubs, so when we were introduced to the Half Way up we where more than happy. It also has a special meaning as it is where our Mountain biking club was founded (you'll see the shirt hanging in the pub). It is hidden away but worth the... More

Went here on a quiet Friday night for a meal with my girlfriend, when entering the pub there was a few locals in the pub around the bar, we went to the bar ordered drinks and said that we had a table booked. The waitress showed us to the table right next to the bar where the locals were congregated... More

Had to write this review as we have stayed at this lovely b and b/pub/restaurant a number of times now and each time has been the best experience. The rooms are lovely, quirky and polished. The staff are approachable, friendly and work hard. The Sunday lunches are to die for. We ate as a family (4 adults, 1 child and... More

Pleasant, quiet & relaxing surroundings. My Only criticism is it's possibly not accessible for a person with disabilities. Offers a very good selection of food. The staff are helpful and the meal was Splendid. This comes Recommended.

We visited the Halfway House on Saturday 20 December where we met up with my Sister and Brother-in-law for a pre-Christmas meal. What a delight - the barmaid/waitress was very friendly and quite happy to wait until all four of us were ready to order (not an easy task, as there were so many tasty dishes to choose from), and...
