Told we would have to wait 25 minutes for a table, but when we asked - after looking at the big, empty bar, were told we could eat there - ?? Do they try and put you in the restaurant. as there you might give a tip?? A couple in front of us left when told they would have to... More

This pub is in a great location on the river with adjoining accomodation. It gets very busy. It could be made so much better if they employed more staff. Had to join a queue at the bar for drinks, wait 30 minutes for a table then wait almost as long for food to arrive. Food adeqaute , a little pricy... More

Tried to eat here, but walked away for the second time in as many months. The restaurant was quite empty, but were told we would have to wait at least 30 minutes as they were short staffed. Again. This was after being made to wait before anyone even came to see us at the reception area. We have eaten here... More

Great find. Malta Inn 5 mins outside Maidstone. Right by the river so has some great views from their beer garden. Food (steaks) was hot and tasty and cooked how we asked them to be, the drink selection was huge and we stayed longer than we meant too. Service was friendly and unobtrusive. Thoroughly recommended. If you don`t enjoy it... More

Never enough staff. Long waits for service and worse than average food. Shame as it could be such a good pub. Stayed in the hotel next door and was kept up all evening by a barking dog, which apparently is owned by the Malta Inn Manager. Not best pleased

We visited the Malta on 29th October. It was busy but not absolutely full - but they still advised a long wait because they only had two waitresses on duty and to their apparent surprise it was half-term! I did suggest that half-term should not have taken the management by surprise because it had been determined a long time ago... More

Do not dine here. The service is ridiculously slow. We received an incorrect order of substandard food. Not worth visiting.

I visited with friends in June. We waited at the bar with several others for 20 minutes. There was only 1 person serving, several other staff walked past. I asked one why there was only 1 staff at the bar. I was told the others were getting ready for service. There was no food on offer this day too due... More

lovely location but nothing else going for it. Staff are not keen to serve, food okay, typical beefeater food. All right as a venue to drink and sit outside near the river on a summers day. That is about it.
