“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

I could fault the restaurant. The service was top notch, the food was perfect and the atmosphere was exactly right for a country pub.
I definitely recommend to anyone looking for a higher class of "pub food"

“Fab evening, thankyou!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

We were at The Halfway House for the first time on Friday evening for my son's bithday with a group of family/friends. From the moment you walk in the atmosphere feels warm and friendly.
The staff were very accommadating and nothing was too much trouble, with the owners being very much 'on hand' in both the bar and the restaurant. I was amazed at the choice of food, especially the fish. Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed their food whatever they had ordered, from the beautifully cooked fish to handmade pies and pasta dishes. Even the veg was perfect. The value for money was also extremely good. The potions are large and you could easily share dessert.
It was really nice to eat in a family friendly, unstuffy establishment with the food quality of a high end restaurant.
I think this is somewhere we will visit lots in the future. I can't wait!!

“Great food, lovely pub, fab night!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

We booked a week in advance for a Friday night, table of 11 for a birthday celebration. All our food was fresh, hot and full of flavour. The menu included lots of sea food as well as meat dishes, a separate vegetarian menu and a specials board. We ordered across all menus and it all arrived at the same time. Our only problem was that we underestimated the portion sizes (although when ordering we were told to consider ordering less!) We were stuffed and satisfied by the end of it. Friendly staff, lovely owners. Nothing was too much trouble. Cannot wait to go back! x

“A vist here is a must for fish lovers.”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We had a really fantastic meal here. The food was absolutely delicious and well worth the 20 mile drive to. The fish was superb as was the Steak & Kidney pudding. Dan the manager was very attentive and food was brought out promptly and attention to detail was paid. I can highly recommend this Restaurant.

“Impromptu Meal”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

I took my family here one evening after spending the day at Leeds Castle - Go Ape. It was totally unplanned but nevertheless we were welcomed and accommodated. All nine had a very pleasant meal and I wasn't left penniless after paying the bill. So all good and looking forward to returning at another time
