Popped in here since in the neighbourhood and glad we did. In an area which has been gentrified so much recently the Malt & Hops has held on to a bit of character. Okay, the character is a bit rough round the edges but we were welcomed and quickly served at the bar. The place was busy with a broad... More

Popped in for a drink before going to one of the nearby restaurant & wow what a find. Full of locals, all very friendly, lots of real ales & a good selection of spirits. Definitely not one of your trendy, bright & soulless pubs but a pub with character & a buzz about it. Alright the decor is a bit... More

Good friendly pub with loads of Real Ales, well worth a visit. Could do with a Spring Clean and it has a very damp/musty smell when you first enter. We enjoyed the beers though.

First time I'd been to this pub and what a cracking pub it is. Had a good range of real ales. A very good traditional pub with friendly staff
