Dave and Nan run a fun and great place. Nan's chicken wings are spectacular!! If your a diver, Dave can always use the help with reef cleanup up, just ask. Good people, great place, great food. Be sure to play some pool while you there!!

Dear benmD7233DR

thanks for giving us a top rated 5 star review, I particularly like your comments about Nan's Fried Chicken (NFC) which is actually succulent chicken breast and tastes way better than any other fast food ?FC.

safe travels, see you next time

HIGH 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!
Buy any 12 drinks and ONLY pay for a bakers 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!

There’s small but amazing place with pool table in Patong. You would like this cafe first of all for people: owner will be there to welcome you and his wife will prepare for you tasty seafood dish. Waitress will try to involve you in regular evening killer pool game with possibility to win money prize. It’s combination of British entertainment with well prepared Thai cuisine. Prices are similar to other restaurants: fried crab yellow curry - 400 TBT and beer 50-90 TBT. Also on the wall you can find information about regular Thai cuisine cooking classes - will totally join next time.
