The food was great, the table service was good, but our overall experience was ruined by some very poor customer service. We had finished our food and it was around 45 minutes before a member of staff passed whose eye we could catch and ask for the bill. This wasn't a problem as we were chatting and in no rush.... More

Hi Christie H, We would like to apologise for your experience with us this time at The Halt. The situation we found ourselves in is extremely rare and unfortunately the member of staff that dealt with you initially was not aware of a procedure to follow. We will ensure that this changes and training is given. We have spoken to... More

Seated immediately enter just before 12 but was busy quickly so probably wouldn't have been seated without s reservation later. Staff were polite and the surroundings were lovely. Plenty of outdoor seating bet it's wonderful in the summer. Meal for two with four soft drinks, soup n sandwich, starter and wrap was just over £30. Food was hot and tasty... More

This is a great spot for a glass of wine on the terrace in the sun, but I recently went for dinner with family and friends for the first time. For somewhere that I wouldn't describe as a fine dining establishment, the portions were bluntly small. £2.75 for half a dozen olives and a few miniscule slices of ciabatta? Had... More

We didn't book a table but turned up at 12 midday, we were shown promptly to a table over looking the garden. Seating was very comfortable which is always a great thing! After ordering our drinks we all ordered the 10oz gammon steak, egg & chips. Our food was served quickly by a very smiley, bubbly waitress asking if there... More

We were a group of 30, celebrating a 40th birthday party. From the planning to the execution it was first class. The manager used his knowledge and experience to offer us a varied and enjoyable evening. At no point were we hurried or felt time watched or pressured. The food was to an excellent standard. Bravo to staff who understood... More

Went for a birthday dinner. Although the area allocated for dining was near full, our server found us a charming table when it became available. The atmosphere was lively, but retained a sense of intimacy as a pub should. The outdoor area was packed; it looked beautiful, especially in the late August sunshine! Drinks options were, from what we had,... More

Lovely grounds, nice internally. Menu was varied with plenty of choice, portions were very large and well cooked and presented. Prices reasonable, served quickly and politely. I only popped in for an evening meal because I was staying at the hotel 200 yards away and didn't fancy anything on their menu! Definitely recommended.

The food was lovely, great quality and presented with care and creativity. The prices are very fair for the food you get. There seemed... More
