Housed in an elegant, and beautifully refurbished Victorian building, the Malt House is a welcoming and friendly pub. The menu comprises traditional British fare, expertly cooked, and with a contemporary European twist. As a result, the dishes are surprising, exciting, yet recognisably British and absolutely delicious. Starters, for instance, include dishes such as Scottish langoustines and burnt tomato Marie Rose or white asparagus spears served with a confit of blood orange. Mains include a light and summery poached cod and an orzo pasta dish for vegetarians, bursting with garden vegetables. With a great selection of authentic British side dishes (from an artfully prepared green salad to satisfyingly chunky chips) to enhance the meal, diners are certain to be delighted by a trip to the Malt House. One of the wonderful things about the Malt House is that it is a very family friendly place. Indeed, the pub has put together a special Children's Menu, which is very wide ranging. With everything from old favourites like fish fingers and macaroni cheese to an indulgent mini roast beef and a colourful knickerbocker glory for dessert, younger diners will love the food at the Malt House. For adults looking for recommendations about what to eat, the Malt House always offers an excellent specials board, which includes items like succulent veal or the astounding butcher's cut cooked in hay. It is important to leave room for dessert at this gourmet London pub, with the trendy salted caramel ice cream being particularly good.
