Returned here with a friend to have the Super Salad as we did on our last visit about 12 months ago. Having ordered one salad with chicken skewers and one with salmon, we started to chat about how much we had enjoyed our previous salad there. Leaves, nuts, fruit, seeds, olives, rice - it really was a super salad. How...

Booked a table for two on a busy Saturday night. Initially all went well and we were seated promptly on a table that rocked badly so we had to wedge it with paper to become stable. No big deal, just a minor irritation. Having ordered our drinks in fairness arrived promptly and the waitress was pleasant enough. However having ordered...

A really nice location with a fantastic meal. Professional staff that maybe don't need to be as stuffy as they tried to be! - relax guys the surroundings and the food does the job nicely for you. 3 two course meals came to £48 - bargain and no issues ! Would I go back? Hell yea!!!

We decided to head into Maltsters after walking by and deciding it looked good (we'd never been before). We were lucky as it was fully booked and there was just one table for two left untaken (would suggest booking in advance). The two of us decided to have the Beef Roast, although this wasn't an easy choice as there was...

Three of us stopped by for a late lunch after a long walk just after Christmas. We waited an hour, only to be told they had forgotten us. 0/10. However, within minutes we were served our meals, all beautifully hot and delicious, and offered a refund. 10/10. We were more than happy with this service and will return. Thanks, guys.

Did not stay at this hotel but attended a booked Christmas meal. Met up with some old colleagues, well not too old although a little miserable because they had not yet retired! There was 11 people and it was a bit of a struggle to fit us all in around a couple of small tables pushed together. The two service...

Dog freindly pub, but if you have a dog you are put in a side room, very cold in Nov and no atmosphere!. However the food was very good and beer and wine very nice. Wouldn't go back again soon as very nondescript.

This was avery pleasant place to stay. We were struck by the cheery staff also how busy it was on nights which elsewhere may well have been quiet. The bar itself was well stocked with beers wines and spirits and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere about it.
