Nestled in the picturesque village of Chilthorne Domer, The Halfway House Country Inn Lodge is a traditional establishment that serves great food and offers an equally impressive hotel service.

Welcoming is a word that springs to mind when you step through the doors of this inn. Be it a cold winter's evening, or a sun-baked summer's afternoon, we felt sure that The Halfway House would always be bathed in a warm glow. Despite becoming slowly enveloped in its soothing atmosphere, we found ourselves not just in awe of The Halfway House's decor - a cosy setup that is bolstered by red brick walls and neat table arrangements - but also by the sheer amount of facilities on offer. Along with superb food and beautifully presented rooms, The Halfway House caters for weddings, fishing (it is a lakeside establishment, after all) and even radio-controlled plane-flying lessons.

As intriguing as these options are, my partner and I went to The Halfway House with one sole purpose: to sample the food. We were not disappointed. Beginning with a double whammy of garlic mushrooms served with hot buttered toast (£3.75), this tasty starter was followed up by the meaty mixed grill (£16.95), and ham and mushroom pasta. Despite nearly being floored by the mixed grill, I was able to wrap my tastebuds around a light pudding from the ever-changing desserts board.

The fantastic thing about pubs such as this one is the location. It's all very well walking out of a city venue knowing you've had a lovely meal, but with drab, busy streets standing between you and home, a dining experience can sometimes end on a dull note. At The Halfway House Country Inn Lodge you have the choice of taking an after-dinner stroll along the pub's adjacent fishing lake, or a trip into the village to see the 17th-Century manor house and church of the blessed Virgin Mary.
