Ringing the changes at popular pub

NEW OWNERS of a popular pub in Rame are ready to welcome diners and drinkers to sample a new menu and spruced up surroundings.

Nick Heaton and his partner Ali Dugdale took over the historic Halfway House in March and are seeking to impress customers old and new with tasty home-cooked food and freshly painted premises.

The couple officially took over the pub from David Trethewey and his mum, Jo, who had run it for seven years, on March 16.

Nick said: “We fell in love with the Halfway House as soon as we saw it and felt there was an opportunity to elevate it to become one of the best destination pubs in the area. We have exceptionally high standards and are re-training our staff to give visitors a fantastic experience as soon as they walk through the door. Our menu now offers something for everyone with a wide range of fresh and tasty dishes made with the finest locally sourced meats, fish and vegetables. Our beers are stored at the correct temperature to give drinkers the perfect pint.”

Alongside a traditional carvery, the pub serves home-cooked dishes including gluten free options, burgers and pub classics. A wide selection of drinks including cask ales, wines, spirits and soft drinks are available. New opening hours allow early birds to ditch the cereal and enjoy a cooked breakfast, followed by food served throughout the day.

The couple have also reintroduced the quiz night along with a new karaoke night once a month and live music.

The Halfway House is situated on the A394, halfway between Penryn and Helston.
