We went to the Halfway for Lunch on Valentines day and it was lovely. The decor is definitely eclectic but this creates a really great atmosphere. We found the staff attentive and intelligent, anticipating without us having to ask. I felt that they actually gave a damn that we were there, which is so rare nowadays.
The "starters" on the bar menu were little buckets of fun but where HUGE.. we didn't even try and finish them even though they tasted great. The main was not stingy either. If I was being very picky I could say that the plaice was ever so slightly overdone but that would be being mean to what was a great dish. My husband had the minute steak and polished off the lot!
All in all we had the most fantastic lunch. One thing I would say is book in advance. When we were there they had to turn away at least 20 people (but then I would question who would try and eat in a place as popular as this on Valentines without a reservation!).
Will be returning very soon.
