We were in the restaurant for two and a half hours, I bet you think we had four courses, you'd be wrong, one course!!! We would have liked a desert, but half an hour after we ordered it, the waiter informed us that they had the proffriteroles, but no chocolate sauce so we decided not to bother and waited twenty...

I went to this restaurant recently and was amazed at the wonderful food, cook to perfection!, the smiling waitresses who were so polite and helpful, and the idyllic and tranquil setting, the boats the river were absolutely fantastic. its was like a setting from "Tales from the riverbank" but I did not see Mr Toad or Ratty .

We visited as a party of 4 on the off chance of getting table. Admittedly it was a Sunday afternoon and we thought that our chances would be slim. However on arrival they said it would be OK but we would have to wait 45 minutes for a table, which we thought we would do and sit and have a... More

We visited the Malta Inn for a light late lunch on Saturday, 16th August. There were 4 in our party. When we arrived there was a sign that said "please wait to be seated". Nobody approached us so my husband asked a member of staff who told him that there was a wait of ten minutes for a table. There... More

Went here with 2 other adults and 3 small children, and the service was appalling. We were given just one child's meal, instead of 3 and it was the wrong meal . We were then given 2 more meals which were cold.When we eventually got the correct meals the food was not very nice at all. The waiter was, to... More

We were tempted here by the steak vouchers given out on Facebook , however despite my teenagers eating off the adult menu , the small print on the voucher meant only adults can use the vouchers and our meal cost more than expected . Food was ok , but restaurant was full of screaming babies !

Ok just read previous reviews but my experience was different. Firstly you really need to book a table in advance, no ifs or buts or I can imagine a long wait. I did and was seated very quickly. My drink arrived slightly later than I expected, no real problem there. I placed my order with a waitress that knew about... More

On previous occasions we have had lovely lunches sitting by the river watching the world and the boats go by, but now you can only eat outside in a fenced off pen with guards on the gate, only to be told there was a hour and half to two hour wait (even though there were loads of empty tables) and...
