Great choice of Ales and the Guy serving seems to know what is on offer. A really nice atmosphere with a real fire. Easy to recommend The Malt and Hops. It’s an old style pub dragged into the here and now.

This little place is always hopping and filled with cheery locals. We spent a couple of evenings here and enjoyed the service, selection of local ales and entertaining mix of people and dogs.
