Lively local with a friendly atmosphere

The Maltsters has both a traditional lounge area and separate bar area, which means that if you are looking for a place to enjoy a nice pub lunch with your family, you can relax in the lounge environment or if you’d prefer, the bar is great for gathering with friends and watching sporting fixtures.

We're also lucky enough to have two beer gardens!  The front is perfectly placed for a spot of people watching, and the back garden is ideal for enjoying a relaxing drink at the end of the day.

Showing all the latest sporting fixtures from both Sky Sports and BT Sports, the Maltsters is the place to be if you don’t want to miss out on any sporting action, while enjoying a social drink with friends.

There is also a Skittles / Function room available for private hire, just ask at the bar. For a little bit of fun, have a go at some Darts too.

We are proud to support charitable events and activities, with a number of charity fundraising actions taking place per month. If you want to know the full program of events and take part, just follow us on Twitter, Like us on Facebook or sign up to our emails, where you will get regular updates and the latest offers and promotions before the crowds.

Want to be a DJ? Saturday night gives you the unique opportunity to showcase your choice of tunes to the rest of the pub, the challenge is to see if you can get them on their feet!


The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!
