The staff were great & asked if we could wait so they could check with the chef & arrange a table. We did & it was well... More

Always wanted to visit this pub after riding past it a number of times on bike rides through Sirhowy Country park and today (my birthday) I finally got my chance. My partner and our two kids treated ourselves to Sunday lunch after a family bike ride and the food was very enjoyable. We sat outside as we didn't have a... More

Called in hear with some friends just on the off chance we could get a table. The staff were really helpful and sorted out a table for us. The menu was great with loads of choice. The food was excellent with great sized portions. We will be back in the not too distant future.

We were regulars to the Halfway some years ago and due to a change of management and loss of direction we stopped going. We thought we'd give it another go as heard it had changed management again and the food was now quite good. Well could completely agree. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and plate wasn't over... More

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
