The Halfway House
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The Halfway House could perhaps be overlooked when driving past on the main road – but only by those yet to discover its charms. Now we have made our first visit, we know all about the beautiful surroundings, sunny beer garden, children’s play area, great selection of wine and local ale, hearty food menu and delicious carvery. From now on, it won’t be easy to drive by without popping in.
Roasts take centre stage on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, showcasing quality and variety. Three meats were on offer when we called in one Sunday evening – melt-in-the-mouth beef, juicy turkey and succulent pork – as well as nut roasts and possibly every trimming you could dream of. The choice included understated but much-loved carrot-and-swede mash, creamy cauliflower cheese, sweet roasted parsnips and, of course, the staples of homemade Yorkshire puddings and crispy roast potatoes.
While The Halfway House has the ability to satisfy all your comfort food cravings, it offers lots more besides. The likes of healthy chicken salads, steak and stout pies and fresh fish dishes (all homemade) make for a varied à la carte menu. Finish off with fresh fruit Pavlova or perhaps Baileys cheesecake. There’s also a range of vegetarian and gluten-free options available. The quiz on the last Tuesday of every month is a must, with a special menu served from 8pm and all proceeds going to a local charity.
