About Us

The Halford is a restaurant taphouse that offers 71 world class beers and six wines on tap. We specialize in a variety of craft beers from different states and a few selected imports with our main focus on local California craft beers.

The Halford offers a variety of shared plates ranging in small, medium, and large that will accommodate all taste buds. Our approach is community. We use local farmers for our proteins and produce. We believe in partnering with local businesses that take pride in the quality of what they produce.

The Halford is ideal for small and large parties, events, birthday parties, meet ups and corporate events.
