“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

A group of six stopped off in Clun on Sunday 22nd July - we were hoping to eat in the White Horse (but their kitchen had closed) and it was the same story at The Sun. So we ended up in the Maltings. Initial impressions were good; the staff were friendly and the people outside recommended the scones. The exterior is pretty and decorated with some very nice carvings, which were apparently done by the owner, however once inside our impressions of the place were less favourable. In particular, the sandwiches were poor. Slightly stale sliced bread which tasted mass produced in both brown and white - so certainly not home made - and bland fillings. At a rate of £4.20-50 this was disappointing. Two people in our party had toasted sandwiches (toasting was extra), and were asked for an extra pound for salad. To be fair, salad and a few crisps were included in the price of the sandwiches, though whether the salad added anything is debatable.
The scones were fine, though, although served only with jam and whipped cream, no butter.
