This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
This venerable old boozer, though it seems to stumble on rather haphazardly at times, shows no signs of letting up. It is perennially popular with a wide spectrum of locals, their dogs and those that have come for one of the numerous live entertainments put on – be it comedy or DJs or gigs. What can seem a bit grim from the outside, usually turns into a lively friendly vibe once inside. There's a decent offering behind the bar, and good prices and deals keep the atmosphere ticking over. Sure, things can get a bit odd at times, but the Halt's unpredictability is part of the appeal – where else would someone hatch a plan to create the only two-legged equestrian statue in the world across the road from the bar?
