We had a lovely, last-minute meal here and were very impressed with the portion sizes and quality of food. It's not the cheapest but well worth the price. The staff were attentive and even noticed that our table had a slight wobble from the bar and rushed over to sort it out for us. Will definitely be back again.

We visit the Half Way regularly because it is so good. The menu has recently changed and its great (along with a specials board). We are always made to feel welcome and the ambience is good. Pianist in the bar is great. Staff are lovely and service is good. Portion sizes are generous. Good position on the A4 and easy... More

Visited for lunch on Christmas Eve for a family meal, age range from 2 to 77. As always the food was excellent, a good variety on the menu. The service was attentive and friendly. I love the portions there, often not the case with quality food establishments. Only comment is that there's no specific kid menu but kids meals are... More

Went for dinner with hubby. Love the bar area with the piano and low lighting it's a lovely atmosphere. Food was ok but not as good as I would have hoped but nothing to complain about. A good place for couples for a dinner. Not sure what it's like by day though. Worth a visit.

We went on a date, my hubby and I and we had a lovely evening here. The starters (chicken strips and potato skins) were delicious, very generous portions. Mains (burger and mushrooms tart) also very tasty, couldn't finish them as they were massive! We shared a beautiful chocolate mousse garnished with fresh berries. All them little touches, fresh flowers, candles... More

We were looking for a lunch venue on the way to Newbury, this place is amazing. The decor is brilliant and the service good. One of us had the home cured smoked salmon with sour dough bread and the other had homemade soup and sandwich. I did have to ask for some butter to go with the delicious bread but... More

Went for lunch, always a good standard of food. Service is very friendly and attentive. I love the decor and the theme but maybe could lose a few items as can feel too cluttered. The piano is a nice touch though! Recommend!

Very disappointed especially considering the reviews I read gave it over 4 stars. Three of us had the lamb shoulder which I have to say was very tender but that was where it ended, the three gazed carrots sticks were under cooked, the gratin potatoes were as dry as anything and it could of been hotter. My husband had a... More

Given its location, and inviting decor, I was very surprised to find my friend and I were the ONLY people in here on a Friday lunchtime. The menu prices were very expensive, with a regular BLT sandwich costing in excess of £10. I chose the special halfway Inn burger, which was priced at a staggering £17.50 - mainly out of... More
