A quantity rather than quality kind of a place. Tired very dated decor, cramped dining room come bar area with tables squashed together. Uninspiring menu with 1970's and 80's classics such as Chicken Maryland and ice cream served in those classic stainless steel dishes. It's a shame as the location is lovely.

I saw them treating a party of elderly people with great care and solicitude. The food was very nice pub grub with decent portions and a good choice from steaks to burgers and... More

Went for a drive along the coast with my elderly Dad and we stopped here for lunch. We were greeted immediately and chose a small table close to the bar that had a lovely view. As other reviewers have mentioned, there wasn't much room between the bar and our table, but it wasn't a problem as the view of the... More

Nice setting on the Coast road with a huge car park. I phoned to book the restaurant but was told there isn't one but it's food served in the bar. We were seated next to the bar with people constantly brushing past our table as there isn't a lot of space plus tables are a bit close together, not the... More

Had a steak dinner elsewhere on 14th May 2016 and was impressed. On way home to Larne from the North West 200 stopped off for dinner at the Halfway House Hotel. Had to have the steak, It was beyond description. TASTY, TASTY, TASTY. Pepper sauce amazing and the quantity and quality of champ was outstanding. Staff very friendly and attentive.... More

Friendly Staff, food just "okay", prices were reasonable for the area. Had the clubhouse, it was a bit dry and not what I expected but then again, the Chicken in the sandwich was really good.

I had a sort of roastbeef with roasted potatoes and boiled vegetables. Nothing special indeed. And a bit overpriced. A few tables for two persons offer seaview, but you may need to reserve in advance.
