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

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
