Description: We are pleased to announce that, on the 2nd October 2016, we opened a second 'Halfway Inn' in the grounds of The Hill Resort, Patong, which is 400 metres past Simon Cabaret on the left hand side of the road heading South towards Karon, directly opposite PS Hill Resort. To avoid confusion the new place is known as 'Halfway Inn - The Hill Resort' on Facebook and the old place is known as 'Halfway Inn Bar, Patong'. The indoor covered restaurant has a very traditional Thai theme with 10 individual 6 seater salas (bamboo huts) for 60 diners, 12 standard tables providing seating for 48 customers, and a central 'Bamboo Bar' with stools for around 20 punters. There is also a large sports bar area with 2 pool tables, 2 large screen TV's, a 2 metre wide projector screen and enough space for a 5 piece live band. Outside there are a further 3 salas with seating for 18 customers and what will be a covered BBQ sala. There is spacious off-road parking for up to 4 cars (or minibuses) and 30 motorbikes and easy access North (towards Phuket Town and Kamala) or South (towards Karon, Kata, Chalong and Rawai). There is also an access ramp for disabled customers at The Hill Resort reception steps (although, admittedly, it needs some improvement). Customers, old and new, will welcome the fact that we have paid attention to the few negative reviews we have received on TripAdvisor (and constructive criticism from our regulars). There is now much more space between different dining groups, excellent washroom facilities, and (optional) segregation between the restaurant and sports bar areas (in one half you can enjoy watching live sports while dining and listening to the music whereas the other area is a bit more private). There are also comfortable rooms available at The Hill Resort, which is currently being renovated, bookings can be made online or in person. Bed and Breakfast prices are reasonable, the pool and rainforest surroundings are very pleasant, with a swim up bar, jacuzzi pool and kids pool. Some of the rooms on the upper levels have views over Patong Bay. Nan is enthused by the fact that can now create her mouth-watering dishes from a very large, modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, the size of our existing restaurant / bar area in Soi Kepsap. We are both excited by the opportunities this new property offers and we trust that all our customers, old and new, will enjoy their visit here.

Can't beleive it took 9 visits to Thailand to find this place, nan, Dave joy and staff are so welcoming. Staff take time to teach my son tricks on pool table and nan even did my daughters hair. Food is great, had the best curry ever. Free bbq 3 times a week, just buy a few beers and join in the pool comp. Overall, honest hard working people. Highly recommended must visit when in Phuket!

cheers for your great review

it was really good to see you all having a great time here, a lot of people don't realise that we're not just an awesome Thai restaurant, we're also a family oriented sports bar, fun pub that hopefully people will call their local while they are here.

see you next time

If you are looking for a friendly place to go with good food and drinks and wonderful people, then this is where you wanna go. Joy was an absolute pleasure to meet, he works there and was so helpful and a wealth of knowledge. We loved stopping in there for something to eat from Nan who is a wonderful cook or just for a few drinks and a chat with all the people that work there or pop in.. Highly recommend a visit to this place, we were lucky enough to be there when they have their free bbq on a sunday night - food was delicious and yes it was free! Wonderful place with wonderful people - if you are in Patong you need to stop in here. Troy and Phoenix xo
