We visited this Inn with another couple while holidaying at Corfe Castle. The staff were very friendly especially the young barmaid. We sat in the courtyard which was great as it was completely non-smoking. Our starters were really lovely and this looked to be a good start to the evening's meal. However, when it came to the main meal first... More

Every time I stay in the area I visit this pub and it never disappoints. The food is always good and is reasonably priced and the portions are generous. It's child and dog friendly, what more could you ask for? Well worth a visit

Having had a nice walk on the cliffs near Swanage, we set about finding somewhere for lunch. A few on the road to Wareham closed earlier, then we found the Half Way Inn. The staff were great and very hospitable. Great selection of food, the roads are great, the servings are huge. The puds were all lovely too. Not too... More

We had a lovely dinner ar the Halfway Inn during our holiday in Dorset. The service is very friendly, the manager very sweet and the food is great. We were pleasantly surprised by the many vegeterian options they offered and everything tasted really good. We had a wonderful time and this is by far our favourite place in Wareham!

We are very pleased that you were so well looked after by our manager and staff. We pride ourselves on catering for vegetarians and vegans and we generally try to have... More

We stopped in for lunch on our way home from Corfe -literally only a mile up the road. What a lovely welcome we had- "a good morning, did we want food or a drink, sit inside or out and yes the dog was welcome inside or out." Three of us opted for the steak and ale pie which arrived with... More
