WI LUNCH CLUB

This pub is always a pleasure to visit, especially in the sun as there is always something to look at on the river, whether it be water fowl or boats going through the lock. There are plenty of tables outside to have a leisurely lunch in wonderful surroundings. The food is very tasty and a... read more

3 of us went on a Sunday lunchtime. 1 girl allocating tables, so long wait to book a table. Roast dinner was awful, hard potatoes, sloppy overcooked vegetables, tough overcooked lamb and a dribble of gravy. However the waitress was friendly. Place was dilapidated

We are not normally complainers nor fill in reviews. However - went on 18th March 2015 at 6.30pm for family birthday. Met with an enormous queue from bar almost reaching door. One staff member behind bar dealing with food orders, drinks from bar plus customers paying their bill. We queued - the food was poor but edible. When we went... More

My friend and I called in for a "quick" lunch. Well, the service was very poor, the food took ages to arrive (we ordered sandwiches as time was short) and when it did arrive, it was of a very poor standard. We waited so long and when we enquired about the delay, the bar staff "didn't know" why there was... More

I am a regular TA reviewer and luckily I am often able to give a good review. However our visit to the Malta Inn at lunchtime today to celebrate my father's 88th birthday was an ordeal to be endured rather than a celebration. Service was incredibly slow, wine forgotten and chilly seatng area despite the restaurant being packed. Had it... More

The waitresses tried to make us happy but they were let down by the kitchen staff. The first thing we noticed the food was almost cold when it was served. One steak was returned because it was tough. It was replaced by a reasonably good one. The salmon was too dry and the prawn cocktail was the worst we had... More

We called in here early Saturday evening for a quick drink and snack. The place was freezing cold with a few customers scattered around next to the radiators. There was food all over the floors with tables full of empty glasses and plates. We sat at the cleanest table we could find, having already ordered a sharing platter, if we... More

Decided to Visit Malta Inn Beefeater to celebrate my wife's Birthday. Menu very good but for just a riverside venue the cost's are quite high. It is possible to reduce the cost by partaking of the Daytime Menu but this is obviously limited as to the range of food available. Not many people at the Restaurant when we decided to... More

We arrived at 6 having booked a week in advance for there set mothers day menu where mums eat free... More
