Nine of us ate an early Mother's Day Sunday lunch. With two young children the free wifi is very useful - although we were booked for 12.30 we didn't eat until 1.30pm. Maybe because we didn't have a starter it seemed a long wait. Staff were friendly and the meal itself quite good -although none of us liked the carrots...

Me & my boyfriend stayed here in January for a one night stay. Our room was lovely & spacious and the bathroom was beautiful! The staff were friendly, accommodating & down to earth. The pub was busy and had a nice atmosphere until we had food which was awful! We ordered a starter which never came and then one of...

Lovely place to stay located in a small village, beautiful Cathedral close by, bus stops just outside and brings you straight to the city. Lovely 35- 40 min walk through the park into the city if you want to stay fit. Grt parking facilities.

Good pub resturant with well presnted tasty food. I had the fillet steak and the wife had the lamb special. Both meals were fair value, tasty and well presented. The staff were polite and attentive without being intrusive. We enjoyed our night out.

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.
