Went here with friends one afternoon in June. We had a bar snack outside as it was a sunny day. The chicken was dry the salad wilted and the service slow. Need I say more.

Bad experience from start to finish. No one at the door to welcome you in. Queue up for ages to order (1 person serving at lunchtime on a saturday) to be told we can only order from a set menu if outside which no one said about. So had to go back to our seats and queue again. 1 hour... More

Sorry but this place is really poor Waited over an hour for food in the evening, in what's a glorified pub. An hour or so for a tepid burger and greasy fries. Breakfast, well couldn't get that wrong could they? The place stunk Tables still dirty from previous night Kitchen staff not wearing headgear And as for the food ,... More

We visited the Malta Inn for our 25th Wedding Anniversary celebration with our family. We were very disappointed with the experience, the service and the food. Everything started well, we were seated on time and our order was taken. We received our starters some 30 minutes after the orders were taken and then following starters we waited a further 45...

This is a very popular pub by the river with loads of outside seating. Food can therefore take a while to arrive. Sometimes wedding parties upstairs and car park gets full. Even out of summer season busy with dog and general walkers. Nice to sit with a drink and see boats go past as well.

The pub/restaurant is very large and can get very busy early evening, lovely to sit outside along the river for a drink or 2 and watch the boats goes past

Very busy restaurant .. Had to wait a while for our table. Had a very watered down drink which seemed the postmix was gone while we waited. When we were seated our waitress was lovely and seemed a friendly girl, she couldn't do enough for us! Food was not bad, I would eat there again. A fly landed on my... More

Turned up starving at around 2:30pm. The seated area was largely empty but there was a huge queue at the bar. Asked the waiter if we could order food and sit outside. He said yes. We asked what we had to do and he said get a table number then go up and order. He then just stared at us.... More

My children decided to take me to this place for a surprise breakfast for Father's Day, to say it was chaos would be a understatement, they kept running out of all the essentials, cups side plates, hot water, coffee the staff need to be better organised, maybe give then specific areas to look after

I was with my partner and two children, just been to the activity centre just down the road so thought we would get some late lunch. Didn't pre book and when we arrived we were told that it would be an hour wait, so decided to wait. Service at the bar was terrible. Not enough staff and it seemed unorganized... More
