Back open after 7 months closure. Warmly welcomed by new crew. Nice facelift for the Malsters looking really fresh. Small but enticing menu, all cooked from scratch with local ingredients. We tried Asparagus with Poached egg, Salmon & crab cakes, pork on rhubarb & beautifully cooked steak & chips amazing sauce bourbon & black. Gorgeous pudds too!
Great selection of independent beers s couple of Hooky beers & Doombar on tonight.
Lovely people we wish them well, they deserve too do so :)

We're visiting the area for a few days and stumbled across this hidden gem. We were looking for great pub food and we couldn't have chosen better. The new owners have been there a couple of weeks and we wanted to take this opportunity to rave about the place because they deserve every success. The chef makes everything from scratch right down to his baked beans with the mixed grill. We are lucky enough to eat in some great places and even though we live an hour and a half away we've already spoken about coming back.

Sadly have to report that the Malsters is currently CLOSED, I found this out only after the telephone went unanswered and emails not replied to, took a drive over as I wanted to book a birthday lunch for my wife, to find the Malsters has closed - a shame because I really liked it - lunch has now been booked at the nearby Windmill Inn and a review will appear in due course.

Hi Thom S,
The Maltsters has now reopened after 5 months of being closed. We'd love to invite back customers old and new to try us out. We serve good food daily. All our meals are put together using locally sourced produce and everything is made in house.

We hope to see you soon,

Kevin & Sarah

I'd love to write a review about this restaurant, but haven't actually managed to eat here.

After two attempted telephone calls and hanging on for over 10 minutes, the phone still hasn't been answered.

Next!

The Maltsters was the venue for my daughter's wedding in August.
The whole process leading up to the day was made easy by Richard and his staff. They were really helpful, supportive and couldn't do enough to make it easy for us. They responded positively to our last minute requests with good humour. They all had an easy assurance which gave us great confidence in them.
On the day, the venue, food and service were faultless. We felt as if the whole hotel was given over to us yet they still had their regular Saturday trade too.
Many guests stayed at the hotel that night and enjoyed a very full english the next morning.
Thank you all for making our families and friends so welcome and making what should have been a memorable day exactly that.
