We dropped in for lunch as we were passing & were not disappointed, the food was excellent, served freshly cooked on warm plates by very friendly, cheerful staff. There is a varied menu to choose from & several beers on tap. We felt very warmly welcomed by the landlady & other bar staff, something that`s missing from many establishments nowadays.... More

For dessert, I had myself a Salted Caramel Cookie Skillet with ice cream. Honestly,... More

Came here with my girlfriend in May and wow. Lovely little pub with a brilliant atmosphere. Ordered Cajun Steak Salad which was cooked perfectly. No fat and tender cuts of meat. Hunters Chicken was cooked very well with skin-on fries that were fresh and tasty. Good quantities and well presented. Friendly and attentive staff. No reason not to give it... More

knowing the owners from the Green Man at Willington I expected our visit to the Malt to be the same standard, the pub is clean , the welcome was warm and genuine , the food and beer were excellent , If more pubs used the same blueprint perhaps there would be less being closed .

Had a great night out in The Malt with a great pint and very clean and comfortable surroundings. They do quiz nights which are good fun.

We ate here to try a new pub and were pleased. The bar when we arrived was busy which gave it a nice atmosphere. The food is good a reasonably priced - not gastro-pub level but very nice. The fish and chips is very nicely done and the homemade pie is lovely.

The Malt is a stylish yet cosy pub in the heart of the picturesque village of Aston on Trent situated between Nottingham and Derby.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 home cooked real 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. Our website is currently under construction and will be live shortly. You will then be able to check all of our offers and forthcoming events which will be posted and updated on a regular basis.
