Review of The Halfway House pub restaurant in Somerset

The pub/restaurant just outside Somerton in Somerset.

Our group of Mums is expanding every time we go out, and this time there were twelve of us. It was a good job we booked too, because there was no way we’d have got a table if we’d just turned up.  The restaurant area is tiny and we pretty much took up half of it.

The place is lovely – worth a visit if you’re interested in old buildings. There were three massive fireplaces – all lit; rustic furniture mixed with battered settees and hops strung from the huge beams. (I didn’t know hops were grown in Somerset?) However it was the atmosphere that made it such a lovely place to be, and that’s difficult to plan. I suppose it was predominately young drinkers in there, and young staff who, (instead of the usual sullen service I tend to come across from people working in pubs in their early 20s), were full of fun and energy and seemed delighted to serve us.

The only criticism is that we had to wait a while for the food to come, and there was a good 10 minutes between the first person and last person in our group receiving food. The food was delicious though- no complaints from any of us, and it was all very reasonably priced. I had duckling salad with walnuts and stilton for £9.95 and it was lovely. The people with fish and chips had huge portions and those who had a curry enjoyed their’s too. I think the place is renowned for its homemade curries, and my complaint is that the menu is far too limited. Unfortunately I won’t be able to go back with my family because there wasn’t a burger or steak and chips option for my fussy husband.

We were too late to order puddings, but there were only 3 options there and none of those particularly appealed to me anyway. Now that’s a shame. But it’s a small pub, so I suppose you can’t really expect much more.

So, to sum up; I would definitely recommend the Halfway House; we all had a really good night out.

Eating out, Food,

Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
