After a night in Brixham a more than satisfactory stop for lunch on the way home.It was nice to catch up on one of our favourite inns in england ,and find in the year or so since our last visit nothing had changed. The locally sourced,home cooked food was as tasty as ever. The pub is a real ale fans mecca with numerous hand pumps some of which are changed on a regular basis. If you are like me (a partaker of the mad apple) there is also a superb rage of ciders. No music,no fruit machines,just the hubbub of an extremely successful pub and long may it thrive.

It was busy, which made for a long wait for a table, but once settled the food was good!

No piped music, flashing light, games, slot machines,just the sound of talking, fantastic ales and great food.
If you could can the atmosphere in this pub, you'd make a fortune.

For more years than I care to remember we have driven past this classic English pub always threatening to drop in for a beer and a meal but never having the time. Last week - no timetable, no other agenda - so we called in. The only disappointment was that we hadn't done so before. This place is a gem. I hesitate from praising it too highly as wouldn't want too many people to "discover" it - but the owners and staff deserve recognition.

To keep the review short and sweet here are the highlights:
An excellent selection of real ales, perfectly kept and served by knowledgeable bar staff.
Great food - simple and home-cooked using local produce where possible - but no evidence of food snobbery here - which was refreshing especially as the food was so good.
Friendly and efficient service with a great atmosphere. This pub was buzzing early on a mid-week evening. It must be fantastic when there is something to celebrate - though, fortunately, you won't be watching it on the TV in this bar.

Don't take our word for it - and don't drive past it.

We hadn't visited The Halfway House for a while, but it hadn't changed. We arrived about 2pm on a sunny Saturday. the garden was full and a young waitress delivering hearty sandwiches to customers. Inside was busy but we found a table (this place is a sharing table type). Great range of food. We had a Beef Madras and Chicken Kasmiri which were both superb and at a fair price. My partner enjoyed choosing from the many local beers available. All in all a lovely lunch.
We will not be leaving it so long before we return.
