A much-loved pub will be reopening today near Reading under new management. 

The Halfway Inn, located on the A4 in Halfway near Newbury, is a gastro pub serving hearty pub classics along with beers, wines, and spirits.

After a period of closure, the new staff at the Halfway Inn in Newbury are excited to announce that the beloved pub will be opening its doors again today Thursday March 7. 

A spokesperson for the pub has released the following statement: 

"Come relax and let us take care of you with delicious dishes on the menu, beers, wines and spirits.

"Please come down and support. We can't wait to open our doors."

The pub previously shut in October 2023 due to the rise of expenses given the cost of living crisis. 

Now under new management, the new owners Rachel Cook and Richard Popplewell hope to restore the Halfway Inn to its original glory. 

Many took to Facebook to share their excitement for the pub's opening. 

One user wrote "I can remember when there was Monday night disco's at the halfway great days good to see it open again."

Another said "I went there yesterday for a pre opening night and the food was amazing. The place looks great as well. So glad it's reopening."
