Went here with friends for an evening meal. Between us we had 3 starters, 5 mains, 3 coffees, bottle of wine & two pints of Guinness and it came to £150 Starters were around £5, mains £14-23 Food itself was excellent with large portions. Staff were friendly and attentive. Overall it was a goid night out.

We attended a 25th wedding anniversary party recently. We were given a private room which was tastefully decorated for the event, the food was first class and the staff could not have been more helpful.

On arrival we had a warm welcome and dealt with very courteously. We were given... More

I planned a surprise party for my husband's birthday in the Halfway, his favourite local restaurant. Right from the beginning and as usual, the staff went out of their way to cater for our needs.

Had dinner here last week and was really impressed with the food. Extensive menu to choose from and the food was really delicious. Slow to get our food but worth the wait: it was really busy though.

The staff are very attentive and couldn't be more friendly .The spacious dining area is very cosy with an open fire,. Food was excellent from an extremely reasonable and varied menu. We will certainly dine there again.
