    Visit the Maltings most weeks for coffee and cake with friends. Staff always friendly and helpful. I recommend the Maltings to family so booked for breakfast. Breakfast was a big disappointment!! Lorne sausage and haggis very dry. The breakfast arrived on a tiny plate that the scones usually come on. Never seen it on a plate this size before. Not cheap either. Won’t be having breakfast there again.

    The Maltings cafe is a lovely place to eat, service is very good, booking is sensible to avoid disappointment. We have eaten there before and the food has been very good but on this occasion the Mushroom soup although tasty was very salty.

    Fabulous all round,staff extremely helpful and menu choices very nice. Soup is fabulous and the bread (TA Francis) always ultra fresh,served with beautiful locally sourced butter! One small request,please introduce two sizes of soup bowls…….I often have to ask for a second bowl of soup.(it’s so good!) A large or a small bowl option would be a huge advantage.

    Normally I can't fault the Maltings and I can't praise this place enough, but my last two visits have been disappointing. The staff and surroundings are great but the sandwich I had was chewy, the ham was very fatty and has gristly bits through it and the cabbage side salad is an acquired taste. My previous visit was underwhelming in the fact that we had waited 45 minutes after finishing to be asked if we wanted anything else. The cafe wasn't busy (maybe three other tables in) but the staff had cleared every table around us and had asked everyone else at tables near us if they required anything else. We both had wanted another pot of tea and a scone but waiting 45 minutes for this was unreasonable so we paid and left.

    As ever a warm welcome from the friendly staff. The food is excellent and the service speedy. The atmosphere, on this occasion, was spoilt by a couple with three very noisy dogs (the notice outside said well behaved dogs are welcome - they were certainly not!) They were allowed up on upholstered furniture.
