“Poor Poor Poor. ”

Written on: 31/03/2014 by incarla (1 review written)

This place has gone down the pan since we visited about 12 months ago. Service was mediocre and the food terrible The pate looked like a dollop of dog poo and was absolutely tasteless and the main course of pork on chaipatta bread was possibley yesterdays leftovers. Wil not recommend or go again. I hpoe the rest of their establishments have not deteriated to this extent… Read Full Review

“Very disappointing wouldn't recommend it ”

Written on: 09/11/2013

Don't like the new menu, not enough choice, one of us chose chicken but it wasn't available, so we chose steaks which were lacking in sides and the chips were saturated. One of us chose cottage pie which was tasteless and very bland. One of the drinks we ordered was a port and lemonade but they had run out of port. The selection for deserts were poor although what we had was edible. We won't be going again for a very long time. A very disappointing and costly evening… Read Full Review

“There are nicer restaurants in Ripponden for Sunday lunch”

Written on: 22/01/2012 by seahorse31 (1 review written)

The atmosphere is relaxed and decor very pleasant. I have been here before and found that the evening service is better. Unfortunately, I have had a couple of bad experiences for Sunday Lunch - anaemic roast potatoes and very over done yorkshire puddings. The veggie option on the main menu states it comes served with usual trimmings but was instead brought with hard boiled potatoes and a boring tomatoe sauce. I questioned this when it came and the waitress insisted that it stated on the menu it… Read Full Review

Visited this restaurant for the first time on the 22 of April and was wholly satisfied with every aspect of the visit, staff were friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. I have eaten at many restaurants/pubs and this ranks in the top ten for me.

Written on: 29/04/2011

Went for a meal on 28/4/11 and ordered scallops to start, this consisted of 4 tiny scallops no larger than a finger nail in one shell. They were too small to taste and felt completely ripped off and mislead by menu as they were £6.00. The main course of chicken fajita was no better at £12.00 it was definately not worth the money and could have been more inventive. Expressed concerns to management but their attitude reflected the service all night - VERY POOR. Would not recommend to friend or… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/02/2011 by sidster6969 (2 reviews written)

It would seem that the "Sunday factor" whereby you go out for a meal on any "special" day (mothers day, Valentines, Sunday lunch etc) is marred by restaurants (and or chefs) being unable of unwilling to put in the effort because "the punters will always turn up anyway" !!! I took my family to the Malt House at Rishworth for Sunday lunch having eaten here on many occasions before, but never on a Suday. Service great, restaraunt great, one meal cold (carvery), one meal uncooked (Risotto), of the… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/02/2011

We have driven past the Malthouse at Rishworth many times but had been deterred from eating there by a couple of poor reviews.
Today we called in for lunch and found that there were only a few seats left, which must be some sort of recommendation considering the competition in this area.
The staff were immediately helpful and were nothing less than professional. The interior is bright, clean and pleasantly decorated. We ordered from the ` two for £10` menu; a Lasagne with garlic bread and a… Read Full Review

I am not sure why people have had bad experiences. I am fussy and I have always eaten well and been looked after well here. We shared a plate of chips the other day and came for a meal a few days later - the service and quality was fantastic. Roaring fire, good food, attentive service and excellent prices… Read Full Review

Don't chance it, we have spoken to others who have had a similar poor experience. Food poor, I was looking forward to enjoying a meal as the bar and restaurant felt really good. Unfortunately that was as far as it went, the food was below par… Read Full Review

Did not appear to be a single person in charge when we wanted to return our food as unsatisfactory. We felt the main meal was of a poor standard. We arrived at 4pm and the food looked like it had been around since lunch time. We were all disappointed, not even an apology was received. Would not recommend… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/11/2008 by AlanTh (2 reviews written)

At The Malthouse 3 out of 4 meals were returned as the beef was tough as a leather boot, none of the party could eat it. Manager only agreed to remove one from the bill. Very disappointed on our 4th visit to this restaurant. The barman appeared in another world, very slow. Would not go again.

We left The Malthouse restaurant in Ripponden, West Yorkshire without eating our mains, but they did accept that we wouldn't pay for anything!

Since our visit we have spoken to 2 other groups who had a similar experience.

I would recommend The Old Bore, The Millbank and El Gato Negro, which are all in the same area… Read Full Review
