I really like coming to this place. The food is tasty, good portion and great prices. I love the fact that there a choice of menu; either your normal pub grub or the Indian grill and both are delicious. The staff are friendly and on the ball.

The food was fantastic, we were seated in a small separate area which was perfect as we had three dogs and two children with us. A large group, food all came within reasonable time and piping hot! We will definitely return

Great Indian Grill menu.
Nice that if some of your party do not like Indian, you can select from the main menu

Great service unfortunately they had problems with the heating but did ring and advise me prior to see if I wanted to cancel and rebook but to be fair it wasn’t that cold in there

We bought two friends for a meal. We all choose the Indian selection, two of us actually love madras and we both said we haven’t tasted one quite like it before. It was delicious!
Service was perfect and ordering drinks was simple. Staff were pleasant. We will definitely return.

Food was OK but the venue was very rough. A few drunk and noisy lads were swearing loudly on a big table not far from the dining area where their were families with children. Landlady could've said something but seemed to know the lads involved and turned a blind eye.

On arrival after checking in and seated at a table-drinks ordered and delivered promptly-45 mins later a member of staff had to be asked for a menu while cleaning a table near by.

10 mins later our order was taken-the starter arrived in good time which was of a great quality and full of flavour and spices.

25 mins later a colleague came to our table and asked is there anything else I can get you-we replied our main is outstanding.

Again on arrival the main was of a high quality.

Staff customer service was not up to normal standards due to not be asked how our food was.

Our experience was also being adopted by other customers on near by tables.

We had to pay at the bar as no member of staff provided us of the bill of fayre.

We booked a Xmas meal for 8 people, we got there on time and was taken into a back room without any Xmas decorations or music at all! (Was the games room) We used our mobiles for the music ,when the food arrived we were a meal missing so had to wait longer we were offered no condiments we had to ask ,the dinners were awful, chips were burnt and dry and the so called beef and ale pie came out of a tin it was rubbery and they threw a piece of pastry on top, won’t be booking this place again it was run by managers who hadn’t got a clue, the chef needs to go on a cooking course place was abysmal, ..

Ordered drinks twice before they came, both times staff didn’t know what products they carried.
Ordered the food, then three more staff asked if we were ready to order, very disorganised.
Very noisy as the children went to see Santa, we were seated right in front of the till with children playing ball (furry ball) and rolling about the floor. I think we could have been seated in a better place
The food was very good hot and decent sized portions.

Every time this place changes hands, we try it and find nothing to write home about. This time things were different! We shall definitely return again! From a last minute booking an hour before, we were telephoned by the staff to check we were ok with it being noisy due to it being party night, which I thought was very considerate of them. Staff were friendly and attentive throughout, even though they were really busy, nothing was too much trouble. We shared a curry and a Punjabi platter from their Asian Grill menu and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although it was noisy, it did not detract from the experience , and fair play to the DJ for playing some great music! Well done to the team. Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year to you all.

They had a christmas fayre on starting at 4pm and they had christmas music on around the pub which was great but it was soo loud!
After removing our empty plates no one returned asking whether we wanted to see the dessert menu. We waited and waited and the baby and toddler with us were getting restless so we ended up leaving.
Wasnt the greatest experience and weve eaten there many times.

The food was incredible, staff were lovely and the only reason I did not give more stars was because it was not full table service. It was our first time there as a table of six and every one of us have said we will definitely return

Prior to covid The Malt House had become our go to local as we live nearby. Service was quick, thorough,fabulous food and a lovely atmosphere. Our recent visit was not as expected. Overcrowded tables, had to find a member of staff for our food order and not asked if we would like more drinks. With covid still among us I was surprised by how crowded the venue was and noise levels including music was much louder then expected for a restaurant. On a positive the food was very good and staff were friendly when one was available.
