I have visited this restaurant many times over the years and always been pleased with the experience, but this was not the case when I visited on Sunday. We were seated and placed our orders with a waitress who clearly didn't want to be there, only telling us the list of things not available on the menu as we were... More

We have been to the Malta Inn a few times and it has majorly gone downhill. We popped in for dinner on Sunday, there were two queues at the bar one for food and one for drinks, it took about 15mins to be served two drinks, then once we decided what we wanted we ordered food, this was another long...

The pub is in a lovely location by the river so if you're sitting outside it's great. If you're sitting inside it's the sort of dark, dismal pub that constantly seems to smell of tomato ketchup. Takes ages to get served at the bar even when it doesn't actually seem to be that busy!

Absolutely dreadful experience, started with giving us dirty glasses with our wine, we then waited 75 minutes from placing our order to getting our meal, when we spoke with the manager he said that they were short of staff. Think this is an easy cop out, they know every week the level of customers they have to deal with, I... More

Visited this restaurant today for my brother's 70th birthday. After reading other reviews I was expecting the worst, but it wasn't as bad as I was anticipating. One or two things could have been better, but heyho, didn't want to spoil a lovely day. We got drinks from the bar before sitting down and were served promptly. There were 11... More

Went with 2 friends and sat outside. The only thing going for this place is that you can sit outside. Moved several times because of yobs necking pints, swearing and blowing smoke in our direction. Food we was barely edible but we did as we were so starving and couldn't be bothered to get back in the car and go... More

I've visited the Malta Inn on and off for over 25 years. The location on what was a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon was just perfect for an "old girls" 40 years college reunion. Pre-booked a table for 6 in the restaurant and was duly seated 15 minutes after the appointed time. The time taken to serve the meal after order... More

My daughter and I decided to lunch there and chose to sit outside as the weather was so nice. Setting was lovely, unfortunatly we couldn't say the same about the food, which was over-cooked and a bit tasteless, and the outside menu very limited owing to the refurbishment of the kitchen. I have eaten there on several other occasions, sitting... More
