“Quintessential English country pub :)”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Quintessential English country pub :) - nestling in the dinky village of Kineton. Pool table....very good pub food (sandwiches in baguettes, good hot food.......terrific puddings!

Wood fires for those cold days, plus delightful garden for those warm ones (complete with 'Narnia' type lamp post!)

Quiet & delightfully rural

“excellant staff”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

we stayed for two nights in july a xmas gift from our son,it was a lovely relaxing break in a lovely part of england.The room was small especially the on suite but very clean with a comfortable bed and everything we needed for an away from it all break.The restaurant served good well cooked food and potions big enough for even the heartiest appetite.The only disappointment we had was a bit of a restricted menu having read the menu on the website we expected a bit more choice.However the main asset of this establishment was the very friendly and helpful staff who worked tirelessly long hours to make sure your stay was everything you would hope it would be

Thank you Trevor for taking the time to leave feedback regarding your stay with us at the Halfway House
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, and I will certainly be passing this onto the staff who do work tirelessly to ensure you return home after your break away with batteries suitably recharged.

I welcome, and take on board your comments, I am bit disappointed that you found the menu limited.

We source (where possible) our food locally. If there was nothing you liked within the 12 main courses available (9 on a Sunday lunch) our chef would have been more than happy to "tweak" or combine the menu items to something you would have preferred, or indeed if you would have mentioned your concerns to the member of staff on duty, the chef would have been more than happy to talk to you and see if there was anything in the kitchen, not on the menu, that we could cook for you.

If this still left you disappointed (and the chef was made aware) the chef would have been more than happy to contact our suppliers, with a view to order & make a dish especially for you, for your next evenings meal.

We hope you will be returning to the Cotswolds, and look forward to welcoming you into the Halfway House.

“Great stay”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Just spent two nights in this lovely inn. Spotlessly clean room and bathroom loads of refreshments and toiletries. Food was excellent, huge breakfast and their evening meal was just as good and very quick service. The owners couldn't have been more friendly. All in all it made for an excellent stay in the beautiful Cotswolds. Highly recommended.

“Great food, atmosphere an service”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We happened upon this pub Sunday whilst doing a pub walk through a guide book. The pub was relatively quiet for a Sunday lunchtime but the bar staff were very friendly and efficient. The food was excellent, fast service, the sunday roast was a massive portion and really delicious. We were raving about it 2 days on! Would thoroughly recommend this pub and we will be revisiting soon!
