We had an evening meal and it was excellent. The new management are setting out to create a pub which keeps the needs of the local people at the centre of any changes. Well worth a visit.

Arrived at 12.30, as the time pre-booked for Sunday Lunch. As we stood at the bar, we could savour the meats and abundant vegetables on display closeby. They offer beef and pork, and I chose mostly beef, with a slice of pork, as an excuse to choose some crackling! Limited range of real ales, but Jail Ale sounded inviting and... More

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

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

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
