Saturday Morning Drive

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

We stopped in at the Halfway House Hotel for dinner while staying near Ballygally. The service we received was friendly and attentive and basically great. Our meals - roast sirloin and sliced stuffed pork - each came with potatoes (we chose roasted), peas and carrots. Unsophisticated, but hearty and delicious.

Great meal with an excellent choice. Situated on the Antrim coast Road which is one of the most beautiful locations in the world. On a clear day you can see Scotland from the windows of the hotel and on many occasions you can watch seals and dolphins swimming in the bay with various sea birds sitting on rocks or diving...
