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,

Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….
