Devastating Shame

Years ago, many would agree that The Malta was the absolute prime location for people to visit, particularly over the warm summer months, sipping on a cold beverage, sat by the murky waters of the river Medway. Over the years, Mrs Davis has been here for many an occasion. From a drink with an old... read more

It's nice location but there are always a long wait at bar due to lack of staff. I have eaten there but now avoid food. Such a shame as it it so nicely situated.

It seems hard to believe but if their food was free I think I'd give it a miss. The staff were almost pleasant which gives it 1 star but you have been warned you will be disappointed

Really enjoy the beefeater group, have been to Many restaurants and thought we would try the Malta Inn. We'll never ever, again. Starter- had to wait 40mins, and the food was cold. Main course- this arrived as soon as the starter was being taken away. But we then had to wait for the chips to be added as this wasn't... More

Had to wait 15 minutes even though we had pre-booked, took ages for the starters and then the main course to arrive. Very small portion and very greasy. Waitress offered us discount as she realised the long delays in food!. Got charged for side order of onion rings that we didn't even receive. A real shame as we have been... More

Liked the location. Disliked the poor service, cold chips, tired and old fashioned decor. I was looking forward to my meal but it was full of disappointment so much that I'd not go back.

It was a beautiful sunny day at the end of the Easter holidays and we decided to eat inside to avoid getting burnt. We arrived just after twelve and went inside and upstairs to the restaurant. That wasn't too busy and we got a table by the window with a view of the river where we could watch the comings... More

I was recommended this place by my niece who has fond memories of spending time there as a child. I have to say it's lovely outside, if you're wanting nothing more than a beer by the river. We took my mum there for lunch on her birthday and it was awful! There were 3 bar staff behind the bar doing... More

Went in for a bar meal with my partner amd 2 year old daughter. It was a sunny day so we sat by the river outside. Great spot to have lunch and clearly very popular. They were clearly doing great business as there was no cutlery left and we had to wait for some to be washed up! The food... More

Next door to an EXCELLENT Premier Inn and in a really lovely location right next to a very picturesque spot on the river. We were looking forward to an evening meal there but after having our first breakfast there we decided against it. Most of the staff were very friendly. However, the breakfast area looked very grubby as were lots... More
