Went for something to eat after a walk. Standard pub food, we had burgers for a change, but well cooked and the service was quick. The young staff were very friendly and helpful. Will go again.

The Malt is a stylish yet cosy pub in the heart of the picturesque village of Aston on Trent.We offer a range of fine cask ales and premium lagers along with a good choice of wines and soft drinks.We aren't a restaurant, we are a pub offering great pub food which is beautifully presented and served in stylish surroundings.We are passionate about customer service and go the extra mile to ensure that you enjoy your visit so much you will soon return.We welcome children but ask that they are supervised at all times and are not unaccompanied in the pub after 9pm.We welcome walkers and don't mind muddy boots and we also love dogs but ask that they are kept on a lead and off the furniture..there's always a bowl of fresh drinking water for our furry friends too!We have regular open mic' and music quiz nights and a weekly general knowledge quiz on a Tuesday from 9pm.
