The food is excellent here and of good portion sizes. Staff are friendly and service very good. The place is well laid out and lovely to dine in. My only negative point would be that it has got very expensive compared to other places within 15 miles of it.

The Halfway House Hotel is situated along side the coast road, most of the restaurant has views across the sea. Food and service is second to none a great varied menu to suit all.

What a lovely Wee place. Friendly helpful staff and great food. Called in during the week. Place a bit dated and old fashioned. But just adds to the homely feel. Stunning views
