Thank you for your recent review and to keep my response short i will clear up the confusion you seem to have with the short break in food service (45 mins to be excact) We had been very busy at lunch and so as not to compromise the evening service we stopped serving food for a short period so as...

If I were to be a bit picky perhaps a few simpler dishes would be nice on the sweet menu.Lets hope The Malt House can go... More

We were visiting our son and his family as they live almost next door to the Malthouse. We were very pleased with the staff, management, food, service and comfort. Rooms were adequate, clean and bright. Could have done with a twin room really. Food was lovely and they were very accommodating when I said I couldn't eat meat so they... More

This will be a quick review because it's a dead simple fix, it's more for the Malthouse management if I'm honest. The food and service is excellent but the menu is a bit poncey, take the starters for instance. Something about pigeon breast with a rhubarb tartlet in a jus of something it other with a blah blah blah.... I... More

Celebrated Fathers Day with lunch with our son and grand-daughter. The food was exceptional. The only comment I would make was with the Starter. Two of us ordered Chicken Parfait which was very good, this is not a complaint, but we could have done with more toast. My son said he thought the lager was very expensive.
