Vegan/vegetarian friendly too thank goodness although my husband assured me the meat is superb too. Wonderful, friendly atmosphere. So good that we returned (as a family) for Sunday lunch 😁...More

Best to telephone them and then you can have definitive answers. Alternatively, as you are only down the road, call in, or passing, as you visit Plymouth via the Torpoint ferry.

Welcome to the Halfway House pub and kitchen, Myself and my partner Jess have run this old free-house pub in South East Cornwall since January 2015. We have newly renovated almost all aspects of this once near dilapidated pub. We are building up the trade with fresh locally sourced pub food, regional real ales, live music and events, a community library and summer beer garden. Our rooms are all ensuite, have new mattresses and Egyptian cotton linen.
