On my week off that is where I eat. There is a variety of food on the menu. The food is so good. The beers are very cold. Dave, Nan and all the staf are great, very attentitive and friendly. If you like a game of killer pool, there is at least one every night.

A great place to visit and hang out at. Nans Thai food and a cold beer in hand watching Dave's sports highlights from five tv screens. Also guests are rewarded with free BBQ food on three nights each week. The crew look after the guests in a warm and friendly manner. The Halfway Inn you will enjoy, don't miss it.

Absolutely love this place. NaN, Dave and the staff are absolutely fabulous - very welcoming. Nans cooking is incredible, all the food is amazing and always fresh. The best Thai food in Phuket. The team also cook the best English roast (Wednesday Woast) and hearty full breakfasts. Beer is always icy cold, the service is impeccable and the crew are always having a laugh. Great spot to sit and people watch too.
Don’t miss it!!

Dear John M

thanks for taking the time to give us a great review, I particularly like the fact that you mentioned two of our staff (Kaew and Boom) by name as they both have a really good, friendly attitude to customers and have been with us for a long time.

safe travels, see you next time

from me (Dave), my lovely wife and Head Chef (Nan), 2 year old son (Dan), our ferocious (!) Shitzu guard dog (Freddie) and all our delightful staff from Thailand and Myanmar.


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

- 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!

- 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.

- 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!
