About us

The Award Winning Halfway Inn restaurant is situated on the A4, between Newbury and Hungerford in West Berks, providing a fantastic atmosphere, friendly service and fabulous fresh food.

Whether you just want somewhere to stop for a bite of lunch, a quick coffee or even a delicious three course meal, the Halfway Inn’s attentive and welcoming team will make sure your time there is enjoyable and memorable.

James and Magda

James Callery and his wife Magda have been at the Halfway Inn since January 2010. With Magda’s eye for design, colour and detail she has created a beautiful and fitting homely environment in which to enjoy the freshly cooked food from James’s kitchen. Using fresh ingredients, wherever possible locally produced, James pushes the boundaries of his culinary passion in pursuit of individuality and excellence.

Award winning

The Hall and Woodhouse Best Food Pub award acknowledged James and his team’s specialism in combining great flavours to produce traditional dishes with their own distinct interpretation.

The Halfway Inn is a popular and successful restaurant so it is advisable to book early if you want your visit to be at peak times in the latter part of the week. Weekdays the restaurant is as enjoyable as at any other time and the menu and welcome is the same.

The Halfway Inn will soon be opening on Sunday evenings too.

Events and occasions

In the warmer months there is an impressive terrace garden for alfresco dining, events and even weddings. If there is an occasion you would like to mark at the Halfway Inn James, Magda and their team will always work with you to accommodate and create your own exclusive experience – be it a birthday dinner for a few or a wedding celebration for many.
