Beautiful Food

Myself, my partner and our friends come here often. It's a beautiful pub, with great outdoor seating and lovely interior design. The bar is well stocked and the staff are wonderful. The duck is particularly lovely- I had this recently with friends.

Visited with friends. One with severe allergies, the staff where friendly and knowledgable and catered for us greatly. Lovely choice of food and the best Sunday roast I've tasted in a good while. Attentive staff and tasty fresh food. What more could you ask. Good desserts too

Met a friend for lunch. First thing I often notice in the Halt is they have a good number of well trained, courteous, professional staff working behind the bar meaning you don't have to wait long for a drink even when it's really busy. We were served and seated quickly. The house red wine was delicious. The food was perfectly... More

Didn't eat here but the meals I saw coming out looked very good and prices seemed reasonable. The hot chocolates were lovely and came with a little pot of maltesers. Staff very friendly. Plenty of car parking and the extension gives lots of space.

I have visited this pub many times and continue to be disappointed with the gluten free options...today I was advised even the chips are not gluten free! I had a very dry rotisserie chicken and mash served without gravy as that isn't gluten free either. I left most of it and asked the waitress to feed back to the manager... More

No vegan options at all. Had chips, bread and vegetables. They were nice but still. Also had a 'Farmyard Special' choice on the menu which is a disgusting and reprehensible mix of lots of different killed animals.
