Helpful staff, spacious clean & well equipped rooms, lovely breakfast. Stayed here to access Caerphilly Castle on a recent family holiday with 9 month baby. The staff really can't do enough for you. The photos don't do it justice, a hidden gem.

Having been coming here for a few years now the Sunday lunch has been terrific although I have heard that evening meals seem to be a bit 'hit and miss', not sure why but it maybe a different chef I really don't know but having been a customer for some years now I have seen a few different owners come...

I stayed on my own at this B&B for three nights, whilst running in the local area. The staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. They really looked after me well. The room was spacious, modern and clean. The bed was comfortable and there was free Wifi, sky TV, and tea making facilities in the room. I ate a meal there... More

This was our second visit to the Halfway House for an evening meal, both times for a birthday celebration. We found the welcome, friendly and pleasant and although busy the staff member (unfortunately I do not know her name) was efficient and helpful. There was a good selection of meals available to suit differing tastes as well as 'Chef's Specials'... More

It was my first time out to the halfway and it was for a family lunch which included young toddlers. The staff were friendly towards its patrons with an excellent area at the back so the young ones can entertain themselves. There is plenty space for parking and I recommend it for a nice family outing on nice Sunday lunch

My first visit yesterday and for the first time ever felt I needed to offer a review as it was so good. I live only about 8 miles away but have never come across this little gem previously, booked for our group of footy mums catch-up meal on the recommendation of 2 of the group. Food was amazing - proper... More

After our unsucessful attempt to visit the Islwyn Inn up the road, we needed to find somewhere to eat. Parking outside on the road & in the small pub car park was crammed & we weren't optimistic. My friend went in for a recce & I wasn't optimistic frankly. When she came out, she told me that the place was... More

After making a quick decision to visit friends and relatives in Blackwood, we telephoned for a reservation and arrived from Pembrokeshire the following day. Brad the Landlord was so easy to get on with - it made the evening so pleasant - nothing was too much trouble. The evening meals were good quality and well presented. The room was warm,... More
