The Halfway House (Rickmansworth – Bucks)

Shuffled down the carriageway of the M25 and right at the end of the tube network this pub seems anything but half-way there. Its a lovely old style cottag of a traditional pub but full of the wrong mix of persons, after a cheap shot of Corky’s or some overpriced, less than satisfactory grub. The furniture in here doesnt match what the place could be and although one of the staff was doing all the work, the other was giving the place a bad name. As a pub this really needs a good crowd (and its quite big) to have fun, yet in the summer the outdoor tables, bar and views of the brook are quite relaxing.

Overall, a pub hidden in the skin of a run-down shack of an adbode. Think families on income benefits, cheap shooters at midday on a sunday and over-varnished wooden beams, which must have seen better days; 4/10
