Cosy friendly stop off

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... read 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...

Visit the Halfway on a regular basis and have never had anything other than a great meal. It has become our regular haunt now on an evening out, we have never been disappointed by the food or the excellent staff even on the busiest of nights. Would highly recommend a visit

I was taken to the Halfway House by friends who live locally so I wasn't sure what to expect. The food was great, simple cooking, the portions large, the atmosphere comfortable. I am also coeliac, which was one of the things checked by my friends before they booked, and it was no trouble for the restaurant to sort for me.... More

My husband and I has lunch here today. Traditionally the Roast Beef choice. It was delicious. Meat cooked to perfection and lovely potatoes and Vegetables. This is a good place if you are travelling up the Coast Road. We were there early at 1200. It started to get very busy when we left at 1pm. Maybe you have to book.... More
