Spoilt for choice!

The Halfway House is conveniently situated on the Antrim Coast Road with a large car park on the seaward side and pub/restaurant/hotel across the road (look both ways before crossing). The pub area is clean and inviting - sit by one of the windows and enjoy the sea view between courses. Service is... read more

Nice setting but I didn't like the way in which my wine was served, cheap and nasty quart sized bottles, not good enough.

We were driving round the Antrim coast yesterday, and decided to call in for a meal, without booking. We were immediately accommodated, even though the restaurant was full. As a vegetarian, there is a good choice for me, and the veggie options on the menu were clearly labelled. I had veggie lasagne and my mum had sweet and sour chicken.... More

My wife ad I called at the Halfway House Hotel on Saturday the 2nd May for lunch and we had a lovely meal. Good plain food with a well filled plate and friendly staff. This was not the first time we called at this hotel and it won't be the last.

Reasonable menue choice and pub style dining good Irish Coffee. The staff were friendly and food came in good time despite the busy evening crowd . A range of starter , main courses and deserts are all on the menu . Prices will not break the bank.

I and friends have eaten here several times over the years, but only once recently. Meals we’ve had in the past have been very good, but long enough ago that I can't remember them with accuracy , so it would be wrong to review them now. However, we did pop in for a quick lunch a couple of weeks ago,... More

My husband and I stopped off here for a quick bite recently. We only wanted something light and opt for a starter each. Our order was promptly taken by a nice polite young man and we only had a short wait for our order. I ordered Brie while my husband had the garlic mushrooms. Both starters were nicely presented, hot... More
