The Malt House, in the middle of Mt Bellew, is a great place to go for lunch, dinner and a drink. The food is just gorgeous, good value and you wont leave hungry, big portions.

Visited the Malt House on Saturday 8th July at 8.pm. Ordered our meal, starters were Garlic Mushrooms, Prawn Cocktail and chicken wings. The prawns were the smallest I have ever seen and also the chicken wings although there was a lot of the chicken wings , the other three starters were alright nothing special. The main course was duck for two of the party and Lamb cutlets for the other two. We received the duck and lamb cutlets but nothing else. We tried to find someone to ask for the vegetables but there was nobody available, we decided to start our meal while waiting for the veg and eventually finished and still no sign. at last caught the eye of a waitress and explained we had no veg. She ran off before we had a chance to tell her it was too late and arrived back with two dishes of vegetables without the chips which one member of our party ordered and mash for another we explained it was too late as we had finished. Throughout the evening we also went to the bar to buy drinks and on two occasions there was nobody behind the bar. I have been to the Malt House on a few occasions and was happy with the service and food. What on earth has happened? On previous occasions I would have rated this four stars. Our order was taken by one waitress and our main course (or half of it) was delivered by a waiter, and then a completely different waitress who brought the vegetables. To say the evening was a shambles was putting it mildly. When we complained they did not charge for the starters which was pretty decent, but the evening was spoiled. Poor management, poor service. Less chatting with the locals and more professionalism is whats needed here.

Had a very poor meal at this place, looked like a microwaved affair. Very small portion with stuffing looked like paste. Will not be back!

My husband and i were there today for dinner .He ordered the turkey and ham portion size was child like and cold when he got it.The stuffing was pure slop that he wouldn't touch it and they took his plate without asking if he was finished or not.I got what was supposed to be lemon butter trout.It was full of bones,over cooked and swimming in butter.It was not lemon butter but a wedge of lemon and butter.The veg was tasteless no seasoning.I couldn't eat the trout it was awful. When i went to pay for the food they didn't ask if when enjoyed the food.They just took the money not even so much as a thank you or how was your meal.We will never eat there again.I would not say it's value for money here as the food was terrible that we went to the chinese to get a takeaway because we couldn't eat the food in the Malt House.
