Don't go. One poor guy on bar taking food and drink orders. I saw 6 people arrive after me the all walked out. Questioned guy about getting a drink he said ' you have to queue for everything ' poor staff working so hard ... shocking way to run a pub / restaurant.

We were, up until this incident, regular visitors to The Malta Inn, along with other local Beefeater restaurants (which we continue to visit)........

Good service lovely setting. Even when busy in the summer months they still keep up with good service. Will be back again this summer. Lovely setting overlooking the river. Love their barbecue in the summer months.

Decided to try again after bad visit last year. It's was significantly better tonight. Waitress very good and not a long wait. Food better too. Will probably return.

Stop here as we were staying in the premier inn next door. Busy old place and in a nice location being right next to the river. My food came out wrong but was quickly solved. Nice friendly staff. Would go back again

Been going to the Malta for the past 35 years, one of my favourites. I had heard it has gone down a bit and yes on my last visit noticed from some staff that they do not listen when you ask for say more drinks and have to ask again before you get them. There were to long delays between... More

My friend and I had lunch here today and it was really nice. I have had a couple of bad experiences here going back to the summer of last year but I have to say that it was very much improved. All of our food and drinks were lovely.

What a disappointment to eat here! It was freezing - sat with a winter coat and scarf on during the whole meal. Ordered two hot drinks to begin with, which must have taken at least 20 minutes standing waiting by the bar - no queue!! Eventually we got our food, no one asked if it was ok, Service was non...
