have been here before a long time ago and had bad experience but was recommended by a work colleague as they have new management. Was not dissappointed I entertained some customers there for a meal and was very impresed with the quality of the food and price was reasonable too. I will definately use again whenever in the area for entertaining my customers

Went for a family night out and were impressed with the welcoming atmosphere, nice buzz and excellent/attentive/friendly service right away. The menu was varied and well thought out, offering a variety of delicious options. Great wine list and very much enjoy the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Food was delicious, ample and well designed on the plate but have to make a special mention for the desserts which were beautiful. All round a very enjoyable, relaxing and delightful evening.

This was our first meal in the Halfway House since it was taken over by new management and we were very impressed. We have 4 young children so going out for dinner can be stressful, but from the moment we arrived the staff were so attentive (without being intrusive) that our dinner went smoothly.

We ordered the sirlion steak and the surf & turf special (small fillet, prawns and bacon medallions). The children chose from the extensive range of kids meal options. For £5 the kids meal includes a Fruit Shoot and ice cream and jelly. We didn't buy a kids meal for the baby but they brought a complimentary drink and ice cream for her. The meal arrived after half an hour, which seemed reasonable for freshly cooked food, and was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the prawns.

Afterwards we were too full for dessert, so we ordered 2 coffees, which came with a mint chocolate each. There was nearly an argument as to which of the children should get the mints, but before the argument had a chance to erupt, a little plate of mints appeared. It was the little touches like this that made the whole evening enjoyable.

I would highly recommend this restaurant to families with young children, or anyone who wants a good steak.

We used visit the Halfway quite regularly in years gone by, but hadnt returned in 2 years due to decling standards & grew tired of the never changing menu. However, we decided to give the old place another go in june after hearing it was under new management & am glad to report that we have been back on several occacions since! New refurbished look & food to die for. The halfway has re-affirmed itself as a firm favourite of my all family & we look forward to our next return, great to see the place firmly back on the map
