This time came and went with no food, 8.45 came and after complaining about the lack of food we were advised food would be served in 5mins, this time came and... More

Awful meal awful service will not go back for a long time! Having been a regular customer for many years was extremely disappointed in our Sunday lunch on 7th December. At first we were not offered the Sunday lunch menu - having booked a table for 12.45 we eventually got our dinner at around 2.10pm - with one dinner missing!!... More

Attended a Christmas meal at the Malta Inn last night, I wish l hadn't. The service was poor, waited an hour for starters, not too bad starters, waited another 45 minutes for the main course, what disappointment, roast potatoes that weren't cooked, soggy Yorkshire pudding, cold turkey, needless to say it was sent back, offered a replacement which l declined,...

Had a festive meal with our family. Starters were good - Turkey dinner a bit of a disappointment. No root mash or cocktail sausage. Very hard stuffing ball and roast potatoes too spicy for me! Dessert was ok. Wouldn't go for a festive meal again!

This inexplicably popular establishment seems to benefit/suffer from its patrons confusing a really gorgeous riverfront location with a really good restaurant. It's essentially a massive, dingy, claustrophic vibed pub which hasn't seen a refurb since the early 90s (or if it has, hasn't seen a designer who got out of the early 90s rut). It's all dark wood, cloying yellow... More

Scruffy, horrible place, I couldn't believe so many people were eating there. The restaurant was filthy dirty and scruffy looking. We were a table of 4 and all of us were freezing cold. The food was Inedible, the toughest piece of beef I've ever tried to eat. The toilets were disgustingly filthy, no lock on the door. I was very... More

Under new management for about 6 months when we visited and you could tell. Staff were friendly. Menu had a good variety. The only thing is they have very low lighting around the bar area so it was a bit hard yo see what you were eating. All round though its worth a visit.
