Baildon pub reopens following seven-figure refurbishment

"Weve had a fantastic time celebrating the reopening and our Baildon neighbours really came out to support us. "
Esther Hauxwell, general manager

The popular venue on Otley Road has been significantly refurbished throughout to create a quintessentially British country pub that offers a cosy home from home setting, incorporating friendly staff, beautifully decorated interiors, great food and expertly chosen drinks ranges. The wedding venue has also been completely revamped and is already taking reservations.


Esther Hauxwell, general manager at the Halfway House, said: “We’ve had a fantastic time celebrating the reopening and our Baildon neighbours really came out to support us. Our guests are at the heart of what we do, so it was great to be able to mark the reopening with the local community.


“We’ve already had great feedback on the refurbishment, both inside and out, as we’ve also introduced new planting, lighting and furniture that has been incorporated to enhance our exterior spaces. Halfway House is a relaxed destination whatever the occasion.


“The team and I can’t wait to welcome new and returning visitors to the Halfway House very soon to show off the even better surroundings where they can enjoy our fantastic take on classic British food and carefully curated choice of fine wines and cask ales.”


The new-look Halfway House has a great value two-course evening set menu, available for £13.79 and served from 4pm Monday to Friday. It includes favourites such as classic hunter's chicken, as well as new additions like rhubarb crumble sundae. On Sundays, the pub offers a fabulous selection of roasts – all served with buttered seasonal veg, homemade Yorkshire pudding, sage and onion stuffing, garlic and rosemary goose fat roast potatoes or minted baby potatoes with premium gravy.
