    We have lived very close to the Malt house from r years - it’s had many owners but we do feel that it’s perfect now…. Service was very quick despite being busy due to Father’s Day - we had the Sunday roast and it was excellent - meat and veg perfect .. Will be using the Malt house regularly now - why travel when they have it all

    Popped in Father’s Day , booked the same day, both had roast dinners, 2 minor faults our roast potatoes defiantly weren’t roasted , very pale and we bought some pigs in blankets again had no colour to them, apart from that we have never had a bad meal here and would recommend

    We went for an early Father’s Day Meal as a Family. The service was brilliant and the food was amazing. Our Daughter has an Egg and Dairy allergy and gets quiet Anxious earning somewhere new, but the staff were so helpful and told her what she could eat and made her feel at ease. Fantastic food price and staff will definitely go there again highly recommended it

    Food was ok - the salad that came with meals was just shredded lettuce and the plant based burger was just a burger on the bun so was very plain. However, the currys and the sizzler were great. Service was ok - we had to order drinks from the bar twice as we were mainly left to it but the staff were friendly and helpful with our queries. We liked the setting but the music was so loud, it was difficult to have a conversation with our whole table.

    Usually have nothing but good to say when we come here. Unfortunately this time the ‘hostess’ greeting us barely acknowledged us let alone speak. Felt very unwelcome sadly. Food good albeit a little understaffed it seems.

    The Malt House has easily become a favourite to dine out at, the staff are incredibly friendly and very helpful! The food is definitely good value for money, and being a picky eater I like that they serve a bit of everything to suit your fancy.

    Ordered a sizzling JD beef dish but my lemonade had more sizzle, when it arrived at the table it was flat and very dissapointing, onions were raw and I was told by the staff it was cold and not sizzling because it had been left on the side for a while before being served! Staff are obviously very young and probably underpaid i Won't be going there again.

    Weve been here many times and the service has never been anything to shout home about. The staff are always very pleasent but seem like they either dont want to be there or havent got very good customer/people skills. We opted for a main and I had a starter which I asked to come with the mains...it came first and we said everything should be coming together and the waiter said oh hold on then. The mains turned up after I had finished the starter. Our mains were nice but nobody came to check whether everything was ok amd halfway through me and my partner both needed another drink but no one came over to ask. There was not any presence of staff around to be honest just a girl on the bar who ended up coming off the bar to clear a table behind us. After 15mins of finishing our mains the plates etc were still on our table we wanted desserts but no one ever came so we gave up and headed to the bar to pay our bill and leave. Will be swerving this place for awhile now. It just gets worse everytime we go.

    Food was fantastic, had a really tasty curry and partner had burger. Wanted a pudding and was given menu but nobody came back for our order, we could see waitress standing behind bar chatting. After waiting 15 mins we paid and left. A shame because food was great but service was poor.

    When for bottomless brunch. Really quick to keep bringing drinks to the table. Service was really good. The food from this menu is very basic and the choice wasn’t great. No pudding available from this menu so had one from main menu - which was also limited. Found a white hair in my starter so had to complain. I was given 10% of the bill.

    We decided to take advantage of the 2for1 offer on Tuesday’s, l had the burger & chips with salad it was ok but the salad consisted of a handful of what looked like yday’s lettuce, my partner had beer battered cod & chips, the fish was inedible, it was rock hard & dry, he couldn’t eat it, we complained and they said we didn’t need to pay for the one meal which would have been free anyway, we won’t be going back, we was hoping it was going to be nice as we thought the offer was a good deal and with it being quite local Shame very disappointed.

    The food was amazing, really good value for money I was shocked at the final bill amount expecting it to be much more than it was. The staff were nice and friendly. It gets very loud on a Friday night (or when we went) because of a DJ so not good for catch up conversations, had a slightly sore throat the next day. My only complaint is that the Women’s toilets were not clean and didn’t smell nice at all, one had not been flushed and poo on the seat , one someone had been sick in and the other was all wet on the floor. Not nice considering the rest of the evening was good. But I would definitely come back, maybe just not on a Friday or Saturday!

    Bad experience. Over half the menus was not available as issues in the kitchen. Reason we went was for the curry menu. Took ages for good to arrive then tasted of nothing. Desert came and the apple pie was cold and custard tepid. Load music snd all you staff that were not interested at all. Will not visit again

    Very disappointed with the food, seemed like frozen food quickly heated up. very greasy fish batter, quality of fish was poor, tasted like cheap frozen and processed. Pizza not cooked properly. Advertised as thin crust, but thick crust, tasted like cheap frozen pizza. Desert menu came out hand written on a scrap piece of paper with no prices or description

    I found the malt house to be a very pleasant and roomy place. I can not give a full rating for food as they had run out of gas so some of the dishes we wanted to order were unavailable, but the food we had was satisfactory.

    When we arrived we were seated and then someone came over with some menus but unfortunately we were told the Indian menu wasn't available due to a problem with the gas. I feel we should have been told about this before we were seated as we had gone for the Indian option. The food was lovely but it wasn't what we had gone for.

    Told about a Fault with gas as soon as we walked in and food that wasn’t on the menu. Had to keep finding staff to order drinks for the bottomless brunch menu. When we went to the bar there was a queue because they said they had a shortage of glasses, the restaurant wasn’t busy.

    Totally spoilt birthday meal. We were kept waiting to be seated for 10 mins after booking time, waited over an hour for starters and then another hour for mains. It was very obviously over booked with far to many larger parties and staff could not cope. Very disappointing and will not go again!
