“Fantastic service, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Came to The Midway for Sunday lunch with hubby and 5-year-old-daughter. I love the decor of the place, cool and modern, and thoughtful touches like closing the blind to avoid glare from the sun at the table we were seated at. We had a fair wait for our meal but I was impressed with the quality of the food and the portion sizes were extremely generous! Nicely presented, too. The staff are very attentive and we didn't have to wait long for the bill or to pay, which is usually a major gripe for me. The only irritation was the family on the next table, who were talking about all sorts of inappropriate subjects in a family pub. Ruined the experience somewhat so a shame.

“Special Evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

My family visted The Midway at 5pm on Sunday evening 23rd February to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. After a quick drink in the bar area we were shown to our table. Lovely atmosphere in the restaurant and the champagne bottle with balloons on the table was a nice touch. Even though the restaurant was packed, nothing was too much trouble for Sophie and the staff who were all so helpful and courteous. The food arrived quite quickly considering they were so busy, was very tasty, hot and nicely presented.

Well done The Midway...we'll definitely be back!

“Sunday evening meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Arrived with friends and had a couple of drinks before going into the restaurant. We opted not to have starters. Two of us had the three meat roast and two had lamb kebabs and rice. The food was superb and the staff ( Paul ) was equally as good and attentive.
We also enjoyed a lovely bottle of reasonably priced wine and finished with a large cheese and biscuit platter.
A very enjoyable experience and will definitely be visiting again.

“GREAT PUB FOOD!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

I am surprised to see the review by trickster as we visited the Midway on Sunday 16th February arriving around 5pm without a reservation. we were offered a "high" table in the bar area which was fine for us as a couple. Drinks order was taken promptly and we were advised of the items that had run out that day....it was extremely busy!! We ordered from the roast menu and waited a fair while for our food(as we expected to!) but we were certainly not clock watching. Food as always was excellent especially the orange mash(carrot and swede I think?) it is refreshing to see a venue that is trading so well in an area dominated by a certain local brewery whose own portfolio of pubs have been left to decline. Hats off to the Midway for providing the town of the Hatters with its Finest Pun Food

“Family birthdays”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

Starter of black pudding potato cake lovely, but my sword fish was so overdone I could not chew it, sent it back and received a pinker version which ~I thought at first was okay but the further into the steak the chewier it got. Advised staff and they were sorry but that was it. Wasn't offered dessert and then bill came with a £13.00 service charge. ~The staff were great and would have got a bigger tip than the service charge which for me should be a choice, not just put there to pay which most people will do to save the embarrassment of a discussion around this charge. I will think twice about dining here again.
