    The food was amazing, really good value for money I was shocked at the final bill amount expecting it to be much more than it was. The staff were nice and friendly. It gets very loud on a Friday night (or when we went) because of a DJ so not good for catch up conversations, had a slightly sore throat the next day. My only complaint is that the Women’s toilets were not clean and didn’t smell nice at all, one had not been flushed and poo on the seat , one someone had been sick in and the other was all wet on the floor. Not nice considering the rest of the evening was good. But I would definitely come back, maybe just not on a Friday or Saturday!

    Bad experience. Over half the menus was not available as issues in the kitchen. Reason we went was for the curry menu. Took ages for good to arrive then tasted of nothing. Desert came and the apple pie was cold and custard tepid. Load music snd all you staff that were not interested at all. Will not visit again

    Very disappointed with the food, seemed like frozen food quickly heated up. very greasy fish batter, quality of fish was poor, tasted like cheap frozen and processed. Pizza not cooked properly. Advertised as thin crust, but thick crust, tasted like cheap frozen pizza. Desert menu came out hand written on a scrap piece of paper with no prices or description

    I found the malt house to be a very pleasant and roomy place. I can not give a full rating for food as they had run out of gas so some of the dishes we wanted to order were unavailable, but the food we had was satisfactory.

    When we arrived we were seated and then someone came over with some menus but unfortunately we were told the Indian menu wasn't available due to a problem with the gas. I feel we should have been told about this before we were seated as we had gone for the Indian option. The food was lovely but it wasn't what we had gone for.

    Told about a Fault with gas as soon as we walked in and food that wasn’t on the menu. Had to keep finding staff to order drinks for the bottomless brunch menu. When we went to the bar there was a queue because they said they had a shortage of glasses, the restaurant wasn’t busy.

    Very slow service. Had to ask at bar for our drinks. Half the roast cold, stuffing, pigs n blankets, roasts. 2 meals had to wait for a few minutes so all could eat. Male staff could chat to customers instead of plonking food down

    Totally spoilt birthday meal. We were kept waiting to be seated for 10 mins after booking time, waited over an hour for starters and then another hour for mains. It was very obviously over booked with far to many larger parties and staff could not cope. Very disappointing and will not go again!

    The food was excellent, but we have had better experiences here. Although the restaurant wasn’t busy we were tucked in a corner so it was hard to attract the attention of staff & I believe as they could not see us this affected the quality of service we received

    Staff could have made more of an effort with customer service, we asked for the dessert menu and one girl brought it over and never returned again, so we decided not to order anything. Apart from members of staff taking our order, bringing it over and eventually bringing us the bill (after asking twice for it) we never saw anybody throughout our meal. Food was decent but due to lack of customer service we will not visit again.

    Awful customer service! Lots of staff doing nothing. After ordering our food we waited over half an hour for it to arrive. I had an empty drink when it arrived but no one asked if we wanted any further drinks. Plenty of food, shame it was luke warm. No one returned to check it was OK. I had to wave staff down to get a drink whilst half way through my food. We were crammed on a table that wasn't big enough for us (only 2 people) and could touch elbows with the table next to us, staff and other customer were squeezing past the other side. This was despite there being other empty tables. Slow to clear empty plates from us and other tables.

    Overcrowded and very noisy. Appeared as though extra tables had been shoe horned in which made for uncomfortable eating. We regularly eat Sunday lunch out, and this was the worst experience of the many places we’ve been to. It’s a shame because the food and service was fine.

    Placed order for drinks, pint of Carling came in a Guinness glass so went flat & had to have it changed. Food ordered 1 steak that was really nice, & 1 king prawn jalfrezi marked on menu as medium but was certainly not, could only eat some of it due to the intense spicy heat.

    The Malt House satisfaction levels vary significantly based on when you go (best when not busy but not empty), what you order (simple foods like steak are best) and who you talk to. My wife and I go quite frequently but we only choose Mon to Thurs early evening so there are people but it's not too busy. Other Friends have been a few times either at Lunch or afternoon (very quiet) or on a very busy weekend evening. These friends do not like the Malt House and refuse to return. These very quiet or very busy periods seem to be the ones that the Malt House staff (service and kitchen) struggle to get the customer requirements right.

    Considering how busy they were because it was Mother's Day, service was quick, food hot and great choices on the Mother's Day menu. Staff were attentive and pleasant, despite how busy they were. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
