This is a lovely looking restaurant/bar in the middle of Llandaff. It does a range of good quality food. I do think the food is a little pricey for what you get, however it is a really lovely environment for a couple of drinks. It also allows dogs i at the top end of the pub away from diners

We enjoy visiting this pub and have previously been for Sunday lunch which was delicious, however when visiting for mid week lunch we found the main meal disappointing. We had chilli spiced whitebait to start, this was great. The main meal was fish cakes. The ratio of fish to mash was poor, we hardly had any fish in the fish... More

Rooms not as clean as would expect. Corners/shelves/ledges etc could do with more regular attention. Over-priced for size and occupancy of room. Small double used for single occupancy charged at the same rate as very large with double occupancy.

This was a dinner for two in a restaurant in which we've had good meals before. Service was friendly and efficient, considering it was very busy with festive groups. The food was fine, with a couple of reservations. One was that neither the waiter nor the chef could tell me whether the "fish pie" was fish-only or contained seafood (to... More

Been here a few times, the place generally has a good atmosphere and popular. However the food is always average at best. 6 of us came for dinner last night and not one of us thought our food was nice or lovely. It was OK. Service also wasnt usual standard. Bartender didn't even speak and waiter was unhappy when the... More

I visited the Maltsters Arms on Sunday 20th November with an old school friend who was visiting from Bromsgrove for a much needed catch up. We had the roast turkey and roast beef followed by chocolate brownie and apple and rhubarb crumble. The portion sizes were just right and the veg was cooked very well. The roast potatoes were good.... More

Although we only travelled 9 miles to The Malsters it was a very pleasant experience .Our room was very comfortable with all our needs catered for. After checking in we visited a very good friend who joined us for a visit to Llandaff Cathedral (which was walking distance from our hotel)for a choral service which we enjoyed immensely.

After being turned away from a few regular Sunday destinations (last minute decision and had no time to book) We decided to give the Maltsters a try. I've eaten lunch a few times here, and although it never blows me away, it is always a pleasant experience. However this time, it took 15 minutes to be served at the bar,... More
