We've just spent three nights here as we didn't want to have to drive into the centre of Cardiff. As there is free parking at the Maltsters and a good bus service, its location is ideal. We ate here once - two tasty veggie options. A friend had warned that it's noisy but it wasn't. Busy and lively with friendly... More

Usually we have good food here but last night visit was disappointing. We were a large group and had pre-ordered but two of us had burgers - which were dry as they were overcooked (and usually their burgers are lovely) one person had the belly pork - which hadn't been rendered so was very fatty and looked unappetising.

I walked in with my parter and were rudely ignored by staff members. There was a table of staff all eating food to the left of the door, who all just looked at us when we came in. We walked towards the bar and were still ignored. Tried finding a table but no staff around. Once sat down it just... More

Popped in last Sunday with family, we had a lovely, well cooked meal, the pub was busy by didn't wait for anything. Definitely be back again for a meal and if you haven't been then well worth the visit.

Just had a post voting dinner at the Malsters. The bar and waiting staff were very pleasant but the food was quite disappointing. When the chef explained the reason for the dryness of the food was because they didn't inject it with water I was astounded!! Given the choices in Llandaff I won't be rushing back here for food.

I came here for my sisters birthday, the waitress staff were friendly but when I asked how much it would cost me for a pint of certain cider, the man behind the bar said £8, as a stupid joke. My sister ordered a starter and it came out with the main courses. I ordered the venison terrine which didn't taste... More

We stayed at the Maltsters for two nights with friends, to visit their son and family. We found the hotel very clean with modern bathrooms and friendly staff. Breakfast was very good as was the bar food,we found the resturant was very busy with locals on Saturday evening that's always a good sign. The Hotel is in Llandaff near the... More

Friendly staff, very good room. TV in the bath was a gimmick which didn't work but not a show stopper, breakfasts excellent, didn't have any other meals but judging how busy it was they must be good! Central heating a little tempramental,but portable electric heater provided was good.

This place is great, have visited here a couple of times and have had great nights on both occasions. The food is very good - I would recommend the beef burger and mushroom starter. The service is always very good too. Great place to visit with friends.
