Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Dante’s serves Italian, Mediterranean and British cuisine and has its own wood-fired pizza oven.

The Halfway House at Clayton-Le-Woods is not only halfway between Preston and Chorley; it also sits at the halfway point between London and Glasgow. Seven years ago the pub underwent a massive refurbishment and emerged as Dante’s, a contemporary bar with an Italian/Mediterranean restaurant that can accommodate more than 200 diners. The centrepiece is a large wood-fired pizza oven where you can choose pizzas from around the world – anywhere from Chorley to Barbados and Bombay! The main menu also offers diners an extensive choice of British, Italian and Mediterranean starters and mains. Dante’s is open every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner and in the summer months there is plenty of outside seating for al fresco dining. A large function room can seat up to 90 and is popular dor weddings and special events. There is a regular program of live entertainment too. Dante’s at the Halfway House was JW Lees Pub of the Year in 2012.

Monday night pizza/pasta offer. Have to say- we were pleasantly surprised just how good it was .The place was 'ram jam full' .Goes to show that prices are important for a early evening 'spur of the moment meal'.A £fiver--is just about right - bearing in mind the place can make extra on the drinks. Seems to be the way to go these days .Hope they can repeat the offer on other nights too. We surely would be there -as I am sure many others would be there too..Thank you Pete Pumpkin Pete Fantastic as always! gorgeous meal for me my fella and little girl. garlic bread with cheese is to die for!! (we had 1 garlic bread between us) We had a starter each (me and fella) and pizza for me n fella (little one had some of ours) 2 pints of larger and fruit shoot £38.50...service fantastic! Naomi Openshaw I have been several times now to Dante's and would definitely recommend it to individual diners as well as parties every time I go the food and service are excellent. Recently went to a christening party and it was most excellent, well done Tiny Sue We decided to go to Dantes as it is quite local to us. we got our drinks and sat in the bar for pre dinner drinks, the atmosphere was lovely all of a buzz, the staff were very friendly and helpful. we then decided to go to our table, we were shown to our table. we were sat not far from the kitchen and the clay ovens on show in the restaurant. For Starters, I had the chicken livers and my husband had the asparagus and bacon. The plates were beautifully decorated and were cooked to perfection. For main course I choose the marinated sirloin steak and my husband choose the lamb kaftiko, again it was lovely, couldn't fault it. It was like fine dining at reasonable cost. we then pigged out and both had the tiramisu, again beautiful!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and we will definitely become regular visitors. Weight watchers here I come!! Ceri I truly recommend this restaurant, i am well known for being a very fussy eater, and expecting a very high standard of service yogurt this at Dante Fussy Eater
