As a treat we booked the Malt House but it did not nearly meet expectations.my chicken meal was very basic but for a not basic price.our scallops were asked to be returned because they did not taste very good and tasted gritty.our waitress did not treat this request with any respect.we felt belittled.when paying for meals at the end i did not even recieve a thank you.we will definately not return.very disappointing.

I visited the Malthouse with friends recently, it was my second time dining here. I am sorry to report that I was left disappointed on this return visit. I am a vegetarian, and am often left frustrated by limited menu options when I dine out, however, generally I find most restaurants quite accommodating if I don't find something on the menu which I can eat. The Malthouse served two vegetarian options on the night we dined- one containing Goats Cheese and the other containing tofu. Unfortunately I do not eat either-though I fully acknowledge that most vegetarians would be happy with these menu options!! When the waiter asked for my order I enquired if there was an alternative, I was told I could have side orders of vegeatables. There was an awkward silence before I asked if perhaps the chef might do something else? The waiter seemed put out by my enquiry. He later returned and said the chef would do a vegetable thai green curry, there was not a second option. When the dish arrived it was luke warm and had a film over it as though it had not been reheated properly, It was also very bland and tasteless, I would have conveyed this to the waiter has he asked how our meal was but he did not.I don't mean to do a disservice to the food overall as my friends enjoyed their meals but its just disappointing in this day and age that those who don't eat meat are limited to two options on a menu with little or no thought put into offering an alternative.

4 of us went for dinner and it was highly enjoyable. The last time I ate here(about 2 yr ago) I was very disappointed as the quality was poor. I understand the place has changed management and the level of service and food has improved no end. I would recommend the haddock for any fish lovers but overall all 4 of us were very pleased with our meal.

We visited The Malt House on Christmas Eve this year and We were all highly disappointed with what it had to offer. Firstly for Christmas lunch the prices were ridiculous considering we were told by the manager that they were "using up food". Firstly there was no set menu and all dishes were priced as if we were sitting down to an evening meal, it was 2.30pm. When our food had been ordered, only then we were told they had run out of one of the main and most reasonably priced dishes in the place.The restaurant lacked atmosphere and not one of the staff wished us a Happy Christmas. In short, an over priced, bland meal and I certainly would not be in a rush back to this place, as one felt that even in these harsh economic times this restaurant was out to make a fast buck and didn't consider the patrons who visit there year on year.

22 of us went here for a family celebration. The Early bird was on offer which 18 of us took up, most having the soup and the steak. I believe the soup was standard, grand. The steak was like a minute steak which had being flattened to make it fill the plate and was about a millimetre thick. This came with a small bowl of chips and nothing else. I was told it was tasteless and in all very bad value. I ordered the duck egg with asparagus salad. It was pleasant but the asparagus had being chopped into tiny pieces, overcooked and mixed in with the potatoes, it was a bit of a shame to do this. The main of claims with linguine was lacking in clams and instead of a white wine sauce more like a quart of cream poured over it, no flavour and no attempt at cooking really. I don't think we will be going back. Poor, poor, poor.

Ate there on Easter Sunday. They had an offer of 3 courses for €24 which we thought was excellent value..and we were proved right! While choices were limited we all choose different starters and had no complaints and for the mains everyone had the lamb. All was excellently prepared and the staff were very attentive. Will definitely be back.

Enjoyed dinner here last weekend, food was excellent and is all locally sourced. Atmosphere was very relaxed which was lovely after a busy week. Good wine list as well!

Stopped by for lunch last week. Good busy atmosphere and everybody else's food looked good. However I was not impressed with my seafood chowder mainly due to the lack of seafood - in fact there was none and the rest of it was below average. So I paid €6 for a small bowl of luke warm tasteless vegetable chowder.The coffee was good though.

Ate here on a Friday night. We had the value menu which was good value for money. The choice is somewhat limited as you'd expect though there should be something for everyone. Unlike a previous reviewer we did have access to the full menu if desired. The service was really good and the waiters were friendly and attentive. The food was good though not outstanding (we had no complaints given the value). I did have two areas of improvment however. Firstly, although the restaurant offers value there was a lot of upselling going on. The waiter kept refilling our wine glasses even when we had only drunk a small amount and was clearly looking to push a 2nd bottle on us. They also demonstrated clear dissapointment that we didn't order desert. Secondly, the accoustics in the restaurant meant that individual voices carried very loudly. I really like a buzzy, lively restaurant but it actually was a bit distracting to our own conversation.

Had a very enjoyable meal here last Saturday night. Arrived as a party of 6 with no booking into a very busy restaurant, however they immediately arranged a table for us. Crab toasties were lovely, as was my main of Scallops and Pork Belly - yum! Service was a bit slow but restaurant was very busy and staff were pleasant. We would definitely return.

I was disappointed. The last time I visited this restaurant (about a year ago) I had a memorable meal and was looking forward to eating there again. The menu was far more limited and it just didn't live up to the memory of my previous visit.

Went here last Saturday night for a romantic meal with my husband for my birthda. Had eaten here before and was looking forward to a great night out. Unfortunately that was not to be..they have this new menu which offers 3 courses for €30 which seems like great value except that the choices are very limited and are very much of the bog standard carvery variety. When we asked the waitress for the full menu she replied this is the full menu which got rid of the old one. Was left feeling very disappointed to say the least. Will not return again

Ate there on Saturday night. Good atmosphere - the restaurant was very busy. We both had the early bird menu which is available up to 9 o' clock and was very good value. Food was good - especially at the price. Would definitely go back. There is an up-side to the recession!
