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.
