Description: The Maltsters Arms is a local friendly village pub, located in Chapel Amble near Wadebridge in the heart of Cornwall. This traditional pub is run by five locals who clubbed together and bought the pub. Two of the partners are chefs and they prepare and cook all of the food fresh to order. In the bar we serve a full selection of draught beers, wines, real ales and spirits for your personal enjoyment along with soft drinks for non-drinkers, drivers. With the pubs fantastic atmosphere and friendly staff this make the Maltsters Arms a pub where every one wants to spend the day. Situated on the premises of the pub is a beautiful beer garden where you can sit and relax while having a refreshing drink during the warm summer months. With disabled facilities and a car park situated on the grounds of the pub we tend to the needs of all our customers. The pub serves an extensive menu including light lunches ( our famous mussels )and also a dinner menu including the likes of tender local duck and lamb ,plenty of fresh seafood or just a giant 8oz beef burger with our own tomato chutney. This warm and friendly pub is the perfect place for a night out .If you fancy a carvery on Sunday ( four meats) please make a booking as it is always very busy.We look forward to seeing you soon.

“Signs of a change and still very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

My wife and I are regular and quite frequent visitors to the area and have often been to the Maltsters over the last few years, always enjoying our meals in this convivial place although we have sometimes thought it a little on the expensive side for what it provides. On our last visit in November 2012 - on a relatively quiet evening, out of "the season" now - the hostess explained that the Maltsters had changed hands a few weeks previously, just after our last visit in September I think. We noticed some changes, including a slightly different emphasis to the menu and a noticeable reduction in the average food pricing. However, we were both happy to find absolutely no change in the quality of the food, nor of its presentation and, whilst this was a fairly quiet trading evening admittedly, the efficiency and style of the service was a definite improvement. We were made very welcome, and then served, by one of the new owners and we were also told that the chef used by the previous owners had been retained.

We shall definitely return, early in 2013, to see how it is going, but this visit gave us confidence in the new owners, who seem to take pride in what they are doing and are succeeding well right now.

Oh, and those who - like us - have previously noticed it a little chilly in winter if you don't sit near the bar fireplace might like to know that an early move was to replace the heating boiler and add more heating radiators........
