I walked in with my parter and were rudely ignored by staff members. There was a table of staff all eating food to the left of the door, who all just looked at us when we came in. We walked towards the bar and were still ignored. Tried finding a table but no staff around. Once sat down it just...

Dear Tom I apologise for the unfortunate experience you received at the Maltsters recently. The day you arrived also coincided with our new menu launch which we are very proud of. The staff you saw had all come in on their day off so that they could try the new dishes so that they can deliver the very best service...

Popped in last Sunday with family, we had a lovely, well cooked meal, the pub was busy by didn't wait for anything. Definitely be back again for a meal and if you haven't been then well worth the visit.

Just had a post voting dinner at the Malsters. The bar and waiting staff were very pleasant but the food was quite disappointing. When the chef explained the reason for the dryness of the food was because they didn't inject it with water I was astounded!! Given the choices in Llandaff I won't be rushing back here for food.

I came here for my sisters birthday, the waitress staff were friendly but when I asked how much it would cost me for a pint of certain cider, the man behind the bar said £8, as a stupid joke. My sister ordered a starter and it came out with the main courses. I ordered the venison terrine which didn't taste...

Friendly staff, very good room. TV in the bath was a gimmick which didn't work but not a show stopper, breakfasts excellent, didn't have any other meals but judging how busy it was they must be good! Central heating a little tempramental,but portable electric heater provided was good.

This place is great, have visited here a couple of times and have had great nights on both occasions. The food is very good - I would recommend the beef burger and mushroom starter. The service is always very good too. Great place to visit with friends.

We stayed here recently for two nights whilst visitng family, I wanted a good bed instead of an air bed at my husbands brothers and thats what I got! I did think it was a little soft at first but actually I had two great nights sleep and the hotel rooms are much farther from the road than they look...

Stayed for one night as we were going to six nations game. The rooms are very well finished, clean and comfortable. We had dinner and breakfast, good choice and priced reasonably considering how good the food was. Service was great too. Would definitely stay, eat and drink here again!
