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 Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
Feather & Black in Bath, Somerset
Celebrating the new Feather & Black bedroom furniture shop in Bath, Somerset
June 15, 2018
Most of the shops were closing and only a few people milled around the beautiful Georgian streets of Bath as I walked up from the Southgate car park to Northumberland place, a little street to the right as you go up the hill of the main high street. The new premises of Feather and Black are beautiful and is one of those rare shops that haven’t completely hidden all the original architectural features of the building. I’ll be honest though, when I walked into the opening party, I didn’t notice them at first because I was too busy looking at the lovely furniture and accessories….
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.

Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
