We stopped off here for lunch with our puppy. The landlord and his wife were so friendly they even had treats on the bar for dogs. Lovely freshly cooked food and very reasonably priced too. We will definitely be returning

What can I say😀 an amazing roast dinner. We had the choice of beef and pork. We all choose both! Lovely pork cracking. The gentleman behind serving the meat was lovely. I have never had so much meat on my plate! The choice of veg cabbage and carrots, amazing leeks in creamy sauce and cauliflower cheese. Lovely roast potatoes and... More

Due to an extended visit to the area I needed to sit and read a book for the day sat in this very friendly pub. I was made to feel very welcome, no pressure to buy, however the food and drinks I had were very good. In particular I was very impressed seeing one member of staff training another younger... More

Management response:

I am sorry that you had a disappointing experience but I believe you may have reviewed the wrong Halfway House. We offer a selection of steaks, none of which are Tbone. We also have fantastic wines and we'll trained attentive staff. We are situated in Willand just off the M5 between junctions 27 and 28 and would welcome a visit. More

On returning from our Christmas break in Penzance the traffic on the A30 was really bad so we decided to stop for a bite to eat. Fortunately the Half Way House accepts dogs in the bar area. We had a very friendly welcome from both the staff and regulars, which included plenty of dog biscuits for our German Shepherd. The... More

Have to say they do the best chips I've ever had here - the rest of the food not too bad either but nowhere near enough veggie options to keep one interested. It's only 10 mins walk form my new house and I would visit a lot more if more veggie options and also....if it was just a bit nicer... More

The food was exquisite and the staff outstanding; making the birthday meal extra special for us all from... More

An excellent lunchtime meal in a friendly pub with a good knowledge of gluten free requirements. Good ham and very cunchy chips well presented with fresh side salad. I have noticed on previous visits the friendly interaction between the staff and customers, both the barmaid and the waitress obviously know a lot of the regular diners well and it makes... More

3 of us went here after finding out the Otter Inn was closed due to change of ownership. Principally it's a Carvery pub with a pub lunch menu. My colleagues chose Baguettes and I chose a Panini that was advertised with a side garnish and chips. The Panini itself was average, but the chips portion could be counted by the... More
