We have visited Phuket Thailand many times over the years, still no one place compares to the half way inn for food and fun.

Nan and Dave are the owners and you could not meet two more genuine lovely people. All the staff are friendly, great service and entertaining.

My personal favourite thing about the Half Way Inn is Nan’s food......amazing!! Nan can prepare just about any Thai or Asian dish quickly and with the best quality of freshness and flavour..test it!

I could not recommend this place more, the staff and the regulars made our time there unforgettable.
Thanks Nan, Dave and wonderful Staff.

Dear Bitedgie (Shaun)

thanks for giving us a top rated review, very well received, I will make sure that Nan and I let all the girls know that their efforts are recognised at our next staff meeting. It was a great compliment for us to host your Dad's 60th birthday dinner with all his (and our) friends in attendance.

LOW SEASON PROMOTIONS

HAPPY HOUR
-every day between 3pm and 6pm -
ALL beers (except Corona) 70 baht, Whisky (including mixer) 100 baht, Cocktails 100 baht.

DRINKS PROMOTION
- ALL day EXCEPT during Happy Hour -
Buy any 6 drinks and ONLY pay for half a dozen!

FREE* SUNSET BBQ (*based on a minimum spend of 141 baht)
- every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday from 7 pm -
A very generous mix of typical Western BBQ - lots of grilled Pork (sausages, bacon and ribs), grilled Chicken and Beef, Nan's Fried Chicken (NFC), Garlic Bread and 2 or 3 Thai dishes (also available on our set menu) all served buffet style. You need to get here around 6:30 pm to ensure a seat, listen to a short welcome speech from the boss (Dave) at 7 pm, then get in the queue before all the balloon chasing, 'KEE NEOW' cheap Charlies clear the lot!!! All we reasonably ask in return (to deter freeloaders) is that customers spend more than 141 baht (that works out that you should be on at least 2 beers / 3 soft drinks, or order from the A La Carte menu, to take advantage of this amazing deal.

KILLER POOL COMPETITION (100 baht to enter)
- every evening from 8 pm, year round -
A fun knockout game, typically played by 12 people, it's a great way to make new friends and while away a few hours before you head into Bangla Road. The winnings are always split so that the winner takes half the pot, runner-up gets a quarter and the rest is split between third and fourth places. So with 12 people playing, if you win you get 600 baht back, which should cover most of your beer bill!

THAI COOKING CLASS (500 baht)
- available every day between 2 pm and 6 pm at our NEW restaurant - RESERVATIONS 0852533278
Find out why Nan has built up a well deserved reputation as the best Thai chef in Patong by booking a cooking class. At a very competitive cost of only 500 baht per person (plus the menu price per dish), it's a really fun way to while away an hour or so in the afternoon.

WEDNESDAY WOAST (250 / 300 baht)
-served from 7 pm every Wednesday at our NEW Restaurant - RESERVATIONS 0852533278
Woast Chicken or Pork (250 baht), Beef or Lamb (300 baht). Check our Facebook page 'Halfway Inn Thai Restaurant and Cooking School - The Hill Resort, Patong' for this week's meat. Served with Pigs in Blankets, woast potatoes, woast cawwots, Bwussels spwouts, bwoccoli, bwoad beans, peas and gwavy, it's a midweek taste of English home cooking just like Mum does.

ENGLISH BRUNCH (250 baht)
- served from 1 pm every day -
English pork sausage, bacon, fried eggs, hash browns, tomatoes, baked beans, toast, fruit juice and coffee, all for only 250 baht, a real belly buster!

it was great to see you here on numerous occasions, thanks for giving us a top rated review, which I will share with all of our staff. I particularly like your comment about our all day brunch being 'the best in Phuket', quite a reputation to live up to but we have found a very good supplier for our sausages and bacon and it could well be justified.

Went to watch the EPL here and had a great night with my dad . The Owner Dave was very friendly and we ended up staying into the small hours playing pool and having a laugh. You could actually here the commentary for the soccer unlike a lot of noisey bars in Patong . Would definitely go again next time I visit .

Dear Curious483459

I am a Manchester United supporter (which usually attracts a lot of negative comments, especially as we aren't doing very well this season) but we have a lot of football fans who enjoy coming to the Halfway Inn for the very same reason you commented on, YOU CAN HEAR THE COMMENTARY!

Many of the so called 'Sports Bars' in Patong are actually outdoor 'Go-Go' bars and it would be impossible for the pole dancers to jig along to football chats such as 'we are 1, they are 2, who the flipping heck are you?', '2 World Wars and a '66 World Cup' etc.

thanks for giving us a 5 star review, it was great to socialise with you and your Dad.

safe travels and we look forward to seeing you again for more EPL action.

Came here on my own to eat to try something more authentic while my mates went somewhere more plush. Food was so good. Panang curry was amazing as was the Tom Yum. The staff were very friendly and I had a nice little chat with the waitress who sat with me for 15 mins while I waited for the food. Very welcoming and nice people. Place wasn't much to look at but the personal service and food was on point. If I ever went back to Patong (which I won't ever be) I'd go back there to eat.

Very welcoming, reasonable price, i want to go again. Penang curry chicken was too strong for us becuz the spice. But she gave spicy source and we covered it. Pineapple fried rice was delicious! And i was bitten by mosquitos and i was bad. She gave me ice, tiger balm even and mosquito repellent. I appreciate that. And she gave us watermelon. So friendly♡
