We have just visited the Half Way House for lunch. What value for money. The food was delicious, service excellent and the whole experience very good. Would definitely recommend this local pub/restaurant without hesitation.

Ate here with a group of friends. The starters and mains were tasty. We ordered in advance. The lamb shank was lovely, portions were large. The desserts let it down a bit. The crime brûlée was very large, the dish looked more like a soup bowl, and it was a bit grainy. The eton mess was very disappointing, sparse, especially when compared with the other desserts, and looked like they had run out of ingredients. But it was swapped without problem. The coffee ice cream contained very hard coffee beans. Service was quite good even though it was quite busy. There was no wine list, we had to be told the options by the waitress and were given a price range rather than specific prices. I would go back but go for a starter instead of a pudding!

This is a lovely place to enjoy really great pub food. We went in celebration of my mums birthday. Ever course I had was just the best. I recommend the mushroom starter. Place was very clean and comfortable. Service from staff was first class and I'll definitely be going back.

I have been fortunate enough to have to visit this pub a number of times recently and have eaten on two occasions, the food is very well priced and is presented to a standard that would put other restaurants at twice the price to shame..
Scallops to die for and a most excellent gammon steak with real Pineapple and including drinks for a 3 course meal under £ 30 Happiness or what !
Cannot recommend the chefs homemade cheesecake enough, well worth the indulgence.
Ask for Diane the Landlady, and you will be royally looked after. Make sure you book they do get busy..
