went there for a family meal and ordered the roast dinner, ‘roast’ is a very strong word!
the mash was so gloopy you literally could swollow it, it had also formed a skin on top by the time it got bought out, the roast potatoes and parsnips were absolutely shocking they were literally white, not roasted at all I wouldn’t even say they were boiled properly, the Yorkshire pudding just tasted like a ball of greese, the only thing that was edible was literally the peas. No one came over to ask if the food was ok, we were just shoved at the back of the restaurant and forgotten about, when the lady came to get the plates I then told her how awful the food was, to which she said that was very unusual for a roast dinner?
We was given 20% off the bill and free deserts to compensate.
I won’t be returning and definitely won’t be recommending anyone to go either

Scatty servicing....
You never have the same person serving you....
So nobody knows where you are in your meal...
Which is such a shame as the food and value is amazing

The music could do with a look at aswell... bit to hard core for sunday lunch

I'm only saying this as I think it was our fault going later ... but the meat was a bit scarce... wasnt last time
I also heard someone else saying ... crist wheres the meat on this sunday lunch .... to which the waiter came running out with a plate that would feed a starving dog
Which I was very jealous of

Very disappointed with our meal overall we ordered off the sizzling menus both meals arrived with no sizzle in site the waitress said the sizzle had stopped on her way from the kitchen! My order had raw onions and overcooked steak as for the jack daniels sauce that was completely missing! My wife had the chicken this consisted of undercooked onion and peppers in a chilli sauce with four slices of chicken! And no real taste!
The starters we ordered were none descript , we didn’t stop to order a desert !!

Came here for a low-key birthday meal for 6. Service was good - a little bit slow at times but they were starting to get busy. Good, tasty food at a reasonable price. Background music a bit irritating for a Sunday lunch time but overall a pleasant lunch with friendly staff.

Awful service and food. We had to wait almost half an hour for drinks and in the end had to go and get them from the bar ourself as it had taken so long for them to be brought to us and our food was coming.
We were also given the wrong drinks.
We asked for a glass that took 10/15 minutes to arrive.
We wasn’t given any cutlery and had to go and get our own as no staff were around.
The food did not taste good and was not worth our money.

Wow what a menu !!!

All the food ordered for 5 ladies last night was beautiful. Took us a while to decide because of the large menu choices .
Everyone was very happy with their meal . My Chicken Pathia was so tasty !
Lovely warm welcome, attentive staff.
Can’t wait to return!!!
Keep up the great service 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

Only criticism was the music was a bit loud whilst we were trying to chat after our meal .

This is the second time that my husband and I have eaten at the Malt House and we are both happy to eat there again. The food and drink was served quickly and politely and we're asked twice if everything was ok and it was; we both enjoyed our food - my husband had a curry and I had their beef sizzle.
My only criticism , and it is small, is that our plates were not cleared away when we had finished.

Super excellent food
Amazing value

Service needs attention...all the safe are super busy.. you never get served by the same person
So nobody knows what's what and where you are in your meal

Very slow, inattentive service - food took 45 minutes to arrive, accompanying veg “would be out in a minute” which we then had to chase up because it never arrived, brought dessert menus but nobody ever came back to take the order and my daughter’s ‘tomato pasta’ off the non-existent kids menu was absolutely vile - we have no idea what was in it but would guess it was nothing more than boiled pasta, a few tinned chopped tomatoes and the rest must have been cheap tomato ketchup. Nobody around to complain to and nobody came to check that everything was ok with the food. Really disappointing and we won’t be back

Was kept waiting for twenty minutes when we arrived so by the time we was seated the evening meal menu had changed to the Indian meal menu and one of our party doesn’t eat Indian food so we had no choice but to go elsewhere

Too loud a group making far too much noise with shouting and screaming

We got forgotten about for 45 minutes! Manager provided drinks to apologise which was appreciated

We booked for Xmas day last year and asked about reserving area for this year and still waiting …..
slightly concerned now to be honest
