Met up with a friend for lunch, the setting is lovely overlooking open countryside and nearby the Brampton train line as the name suggests. The menu was fairly varied although if you only want a light lunch and trying to cut down on your bread intake, like me there isn't a lot of other options like salads. Busy as you... More

We had a really good meal for the five of us. The outside and the inside were both heaving but the service was speedy and attentive nevertheless, well done everyone! Strange abundance of Chorizo on the menu - sadly that was the worst part of the meal : industrial tasting hardly any flavour and certainly not Spanish. Everything else was... More

Came here with my hubby last weekend. We had a pleasant enough time but the final bill came to over £50, which was higher than we would have expected for country pub grub. The food was decent quality, but again we've had better for less. Nice place to go for a drink and there is plenty of parking space etc.

We went on a sunny day and there were plenty of tables outside to enjoy the weather. There was a good choice of dishes and the service was fairly prompt.

I've been the The Brampton Halt several times for drinks, on my last visit I went for a meal. Though the restaurant is laid out nicely and has a lovely atmosphere, the service did take quite a long time and when we received our food, the portion was very small, especially at the price. The quality of the food was... More

Good food & attentive staff. We were pleased with the service, the value & that we didn't have to wait long despite being in a large party. We did feel though, that we were hurried towards the end to vacate the table
