They had a christmas fayre on starting at 4pm and they had christmas music on around the pub which was great but it was soo loud!
After removing our empty plates no one returned asking whether we wanted to see the dessert menu. We waited and waited and the baby and toddler with us were getting restless so we ended up leaving.
Wasnt the greatest experience and weve eaten there many times.

Prior to covid The Malt House had become our go to local as we live nearby. Service was quick, thorough,fabulous food and a lovely atmosphere. Our recent visit was not as expected. Overcrowded tables, had to find a member of staff for our food order and not asked if we would like more drinks. With covid still among us I was surprised by how crowded the venue was and noise levels including music was much louder then expected for a restaurant. On a positive the food was very good and staff were friendly when one was available.

Lovely food and staff , just frustrating that we waited half hour to place our order and then had to keep going to find someone to order next course, bring the bill, staff do not come back and check on you .

Went here thinking it was a steakhouse type of establishment. Was pleasantly surprised to discover it had two menus on offer, the second being punjab cuisine. We were able to mix and match between the two menus.
Food was amazing, the portions were huge, we were really pleased.

If I had one criticism it was the volume of the BGM ...... slightly too loud which meant people were having to raise their voices to talk, but should not let that put you off visiting.

If you're coeliac then there are GF options but these are dishes that happened to be GF there are no dishes that are made GF.

Been many time before but latest visit was best overall. Right from the start they got things right, drinks brought to table very quickly after arrival then left alone to peruse menu. Service and food quality very good and overall good value for money.

Lovely restaurant, quiet and peaceful on a Tuesday lunchtime, which suited my 91 year old mother.
All 4 of us had different meals and they were all exceptional, care and good cooking, a great combination.
Starters were tasty and plentiful, my son and I shared an enormous bowl of delicious tacos. My mum had garlic mushrooms which are her favourite and my husband enjoyed his pate, which almost provided a meal in itself.
For mains I had a very tasty vegan curry with perfect rice, my mum had a juicy and tender rump stark with great onion rings, my son enjoyed mushroom and halloumi sizzlers with rice and chips and my husband’s eyes lit up when he saw his steak and ale pie. He said it was everything he’d hoped for.
We were too full for desserts and we will definitely be back.
Great service too . It was a birthday meal for my mum and I was delighted that everything was so good, she really enjoyed her glass of house wine and the men loved their pint of mild.
A great experience all round

Tried this place for the first time this week after reading good reviews of the food. I was slightly hesitant as some reviews had said the service wasn't good.
My friend & I had booked a table for 12 o'clock but arrived a few minutes early. Door was locked so we had to stand outside until waitress opened the door. She did not acknowledge us & when we entered we were kept waiting a few minutes to be seated. We were the only customers but service was quite slow. We were told the menu was very limited due to the oven being broken. 2 members of staff appeared to be on duty but they were sat at a table most of the time chatting with some friends. The waitress was very pleasant & the food was ok. The decor was very nice but the restaurant was cold.
Maybe try it one more time because I feel the restaurant could be good if they sort out their staffing issues.

The ambience and surroundings are wonderful but service and quality of food still not the best, which is such a shame as we like to visit a local restaurant. We were greeted by smiley faces and our order taken in time. However the mushroom brie and cranberry wellington with dressed salad turned out to be mushroom and brie pie with cranberry on the side and the dressed salad was wet shredded iceberg, no other salad ingredients or dressing in sight. I was advised that my choice of wine was not available, which was fine, but the waitress disappeared and after quite a while we had to enquire if we were actually getting any drinks. We were served by 5 different people and I think that this is where the problem lies... there is no continuity to the service. However... it was not awful and we will persevere and try again.

Good hot food with not too long to wait before being served. Excellent quality and good price with desserts at a reasonable price to. Good value for money but need to be aware of noise level of music.

Food was lovely and think price is great for what you are getting. Had the Beef dinner which was lovely and we thought the puddings were a great price . We did wait quite a while to be asked about puddings and found waiters/waitresses standing there but not actually coming to ask if wanted a pudding etc . Very busy atmosphere but was nice to see . Would defiantly recommend and come back to eat there again .
