Came here looking for food when everything else in the area of operation was closed down. (typical of Britain) Place is small, and doesn't look at nice as the pictures make it but regardless, it's cozy, quaint, FULL of history, serves GREAT food, and the staff were honestly & friendly. We loved it, and had one of the best meals... More

We visited here with four friends at lunchtime. We were warmly welcomed into a cosy pub. The menu has a good choice plus an extensive specials board. The staff were friendly and attentive and the service was good. We all enjoyed our meals..

Visited for a quick lunch on my wife's birthday. Good choice on menu and specials board and the food was cooked well. The service was attentive without being too much and on a cold day the woodburner stove was very welcome.

On Sunday 16th November, four of us booked a table here. Three of us had roast dinners and the other person had fish and chips. The service was very good. In fact the roast dinners were served up in under five minutes of ordering them. I thought that it seemed too good to be true. It was, each one was... More

Thank you for taking the time to review on Tripadvisor. Without customer feedback it is difficult to improve our service. However, it is very disappointing that you or any of your party did not bring your issue to our attention on Sunday! All our roast dinners are sold fresh on the day and we normally sell around 150. We are... More

We found this place very clean, very friendly and welcoming. Unlike many places these days that seem to think that microwaved meal will do and nobody will notice. The Halfway inn freshly made our lunch. It was piping hot and brought to the table quickly with a smile. Staff are attentive but without being overbearing. The food is tasty, wholesome... More

We went here for a Sunday roast, I choose Turkey, my wife had Beef, both of which were very nice, and served very quickly from having placed order. Our 11 month old son was even given his own plastic plate, cutlery which was a nice touch. We shared a lovely dessert.

We found this pub on our way back to Swanage after a day out. The staff were accommodating and friendly and assured us there wouldn't be a long wait for our food. They were right, between ordering and getting our food was only about 20 minutes and it was pretty busy in the pub too. My husband had the roast... More

My partner and I stopped off here on out way home one night and were very pleasantly surprised. The beautiful 16th century building has been modernised in a very pleasing way and keeps some of its character! The menu had plenty of choice, and the food was delicious! There were families, locals, couples all eating / socialising which gave the... More
