The Malthouse is a restaurant, pub, live music venue and B&B. The food is traditional pub fayre, but the surroundings (in the restaurant) are certainly not. We can see what the restaurant is trying to do (be different) it's just that, for us, the upmarket surroundings and immaculately dressed waiting staff don't sit well alongside the traditional pub food.

Our meal arrived & the presentation was awful... it looked like it had just been thrown on the plates. I wouldn't even... More

Quirky pub that doesn't really match its old location. Seating was really comfortable seating, the staff were really friendly and welcoming and the service was attentive. Both chicken and beef burgers were fabulous and filling. We thought they were very good value for money. Would definitely visit again to try some of the other dishes.

We had a good experience here and enjoyed the last page of the menu. It is almost Tapas style where you can order almost everything from the main menu but in small portions. It was 3 items for £10 at the time. We shared a bunch of items between our group and enjoyed it all. A good choice for friends... More

I visited here for dinner and a pint with friends. Had the signature burger and a pint ; my friends had houlumi burger and steak and ale pie. All the food was excellent and the bill for the food and three drinks was around £30. Service was efficient, friendly and prompt. Highly recommended!

I'm vegan - no main vegan options, so I combined two starters. The waiter was friendly and helpful, and could confirm that the options were indeed vegan. I would go there again!
