VERY DISAPPOINTING
Dec 2021
Gone downhill big time. We have an annual Christmas family lunch meeting. Last tome was iffy, this time poor.
No table service, and very average food on a restricted menu, a lot of which was unavailable anyway.
Only one ale was available, Doombar, which was drinkable.
We even had to find our own cutlery at the bar but the trays were empty including for serviettes so we had to ask,
We will not be going back.
Cheap, but not cheerful.

Won't go here again
Oct 2021 • Friends
Sat down at our table and ordered drinks which took ages to come and one was missing. Ordered food which took nearly an hour to come. One steak wasn't cooked to my friend's liking and had to go back for extra cooking. The gammon steak had more fat than meat on it. When the desserts arrived, two of us ordered the Chocolate Churros Sundae but there was about an inch of ice cream & chocolate sauce in the bottom of the glass with cream on top but there was a big gap between the top of the ice cream and the bottom of the cream. A very disappointing visit to the Malta Inn which has really gone downhill since my previous visit and I wouldn't go back.

If you want good service and food, go elsewhere.
Oct 2021 • Family
Absolutely terrible. Had a table for 12 booked for Wednesday 6th October for our wedding meal. Didn’t even have the decency to call me to cancel just an email the day before telling me the table was cancelled. Phoned them up to be told it was shut for maintenance and they couldn’t care less that it was the DAY BEFORE our wedding. Absolutely disgusting but a blessing in disguise because the reviews are rubbish and we ended up having an amazing meal with amazing service. Can safely say you will never get our, or any of our wedding party’s business again.

Rubbish when busy
Oct 2021 • Couples
We'd travelled to get to thr Premier Inn & visited here for convenience. Unable to get a restaurant table as it was full, we chose a bar meal. My chicken was so very overcooked I was unable to eat it. Yes I got a full refund, but chose for the rest of the week to eat elsewhere. Certainly wouldn't recommend this venue.

Terrible food, wildly overpriced
Sep 2021 • Friends
Terrible, wildly overpriced food.
“Chicken Goujons” starters were horrible & unrecognisable as chicken - like greasy batter filled with mushy wet bread. Clearly microwaved.
“Chicken Burger” is a totally tasteless microwaved bland wet thing that has never been anywhere near a grill. Nasty soggy fatty bacon draped over the white chicken. Fatty tasteless chips. Watery Coke. Staff tried hard & warned against certain particularly dodgy items on the menu & dessert menu. Nice setting by the river is the only thing this place has going for it. Just drink & enjoy the riverside setting. Definitely don’t eat there.

Very bad service
Sep 2021
Visited here on Sunday at 5.30 as we were in the area, had previously booked online. Our opinion is that there are not enough staff to cope with the amount of diners on a sunny sunday. Queued to check in, one waitress checked customers in, took them to table, took drink orders, before coming back to the next in queue. Such a slow process and she was doing it as rapid as she could!
Our original food order did not go through, was taken again. We had intended to have roast dinners as it states on website, but none were available. I then had to ask 3 times for the bill to be brought over! Then my beefeater card was not swiped, despite me clearly showing it! Not impressed, need more staff, or do not take the bookings!

Drinks only visit
We popped in for drinks, while out walking around the area and in the early afternoon. We were dong a river walk from Maidstone and back again.

The team were friendly and seating facilities inside seemed clean.

The toilets were terrible and smelt of urine and could benefit with an overhaul in general. Unfortunately, the men's toilet also had a leak. When the flow system (To fill up the cistern) operated, you had drops of water splutter over your head and general body / clothes area. Only small, but enough to notice. In summary, do not look up if you feel water, you think is coming from the celling, otherwise it goes in your eyes, by the time you realise where it's coming from!

We ordered our drinks using the bar and the service was very slow, with one person serving and a queue of people waiting, even though it did not seem very busy. Service in general was slow, due to there only being one member of staff serving.

There did seem to be many staff around, although it seemed unclear what they were actually doing and the outside tables remained cluttered with many empty glasses; bottles and used food plates. People were therefore pushing dirty and used used glasses; bottles and food plates to the ends (or around) the table in order to use the table for themselves o cleanliness in this area was not good. Just before we left, a member of the team did came out and they cleared two tables that were in use and as best as they could.

We were the only ones using masks during, when ordering drinks (As well as a few staff). This is not a problem and simply an observation.

Excellent customer service - Mel
Sep 2021 • Couples
Visited the Malta Inn tonight and I was really amazed as been a while since I visited
Don't ever leave reviews so this is how impressed I was
Food was lovely but I want to highlight on the customer service from our waitress.
Mel was outstanding, really got a platinum service tonight
We stayed longer due to this and really enjoyed our evening
Mel was superb with us, patient and smiled the whole time
Absolute excellent customer service
Mel was super bubbly and keen to please, really nice to see such love for a job.
Highly recommend and if visiting ask for Mel because I will be visiting more often and I will be requesting Mel as our waitress
Well done Malta for holding onto a decent member of staff
