Location is great, with beautiful views of the river, but that is only good thing I can say about this place. Staff were very rude, unapproachable, every one of them including manager had an attitude, except for one young waitress, but she lacked experience and training. Although interior seemed to be updated not that long ago overall place was quite... More

Lovely location for a summer lunch. Lots of tables and seating so although busy there were still plenty of spaces. Get a riverside table if you can and then enjoy the view. Boat trips to Maidstone are available and a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Food was fairly good but lettuce had certainly had its day and could have... More

The Malta is a prime location in Maidstone by the river, lots of seating, decent food and cheap drinks. Nothing amazing but nothing disheartening! Standard chain restaurant. Always return on summer days!

The coffee and hot water for tea is never hot and I think they should rethink the flask method,lukewarm drinks are not favourable first thing in the morning! For what we paid the cooked breakfast is ok,bacon was a bit... More

Had lunch yesterday. Ordered a chicken, bacon and avocado salad. When the dish arrived, the lettuce (of which there was a lot) was very tired looking and didn't appear to be fresh. And there wasn't a single piece of avocado to be seen. And the dressing was a mere dribble on the top. Very poor.
