NEWS NEWS NEWS
We finally have proper broadband at The Maltsters Arms and after surviving on a 1 bar 4G signal since we opened we can keep you up to date properly!
Firstly – THANK YOU! Burns night was incredible and the response to the new menu has been humbling.
We currently open on Monday lunchtimes but not Monday evenings. This will change with the arrival of Spring & the warmer weather. Due to popular request we shall be open all day on Saturdays and due to our shiny new PPL licence and super fast broadband will be able to broadcast audio of sporting news & events on Saturday morning & afternoons in the bar area.
We are applying to have our licence schedule changed to allow 9am opening so that we can serve our Coffee and Waffles to you whilst you read the morning papers or cosy up on one of our new sofas to read a book or have a chat.
We have added a lot of new kitchen equipment in order to upgrade our food offering and our landlords Brakspear have amazingly stepped in to match our investment by upgrading our kitchen walls, ceilings, floors, plumbing and lighting next week. This does mean that we will only be able to offer light snacks, soup and sandwiches between Monday and Wednesday. We hope to reopen the kitchen on Thursday for dinner/supper.
Now our lunch and dinner menus are set we have added a Sunday menu which offer’s 3 roasts every Sunday. Children may order a smaller portion & an ice cream dessert for £10.
To celebrate the start of week 3 we have added a light bar menu which includes: A bowl of Chilli Con Carne with tortilla chips, A Mac N Cheese bowl, Parmesan Truffle fries, Fries, Cheesy Fries, Snacking Salami, A Cheeseboard (only £5 with any bottle of wine), Pipers Snacks, Dried Ham or Chorizo flakes. If you are in a sports group who drop in after your games this menu will be available until 10pm.
NEW WINE LIST
Our new wine list is now complete. We are just missing the British wines which will arrive in March. No we don’t sell Merlot. We have a beautiful French house white which is a superb Vigne blend which is full of pineapple & zesty notes with a dry finish. Our House Red fruity Primitivo transports you to Italy coating your tonsils with a vanilla finish.the first 8 bins of White and Red are available by the glass, allowing you to delve quite deeply into our cellar by the mouthful. We offer 125ml small and 175ml large glasses of wine, but no longer sell 250ml large glasses, to help you judge your unit intake. However if you are a passenger or pedestrian you can benefit from buying a 500ml carafe with a saving over two 250ml glasses.
if you are a regular you can buy a bottle from the higher bins and we will write your name on it and store it in the Cellar rack or our brand new temperature controlled wine chiller unit until your next visit.
