We have been eating here while on holiday over the last 4 years, and it has improved since our last visit. The food was excellent, especially the Skate Wing. The service is both efficient and warm. Very dog friendly.

We found this really charming restaurant (and B&B) by accident on a walk when we couldn't get into the pub for lunch in Ashprington. It was well worth the extra mile or so walk. Our first meal was in winter and we had a great table indoors overlooking the river. We enjoyed it so much we returned with friends yesterday...

We had booked this restaurant for a birthday celebration Sunday Lunch. We had asked for the private room originally used by Floyd to entertain his guests. On arrival the table was rather cramped in one corner and a free table in the other end. Begrudgingly the waitress who appeared rearranged the one table to give us the space we requested....

While working in the area nearby in Totnes, I needed to find somewhere to stsy just for the one night. It's quite an expensive area to stay however I manage to find this little hidden gem, The Maltsters Arms. I knew it was located by a river and around 10 minutes drive from Totnes town which was ideal. I arrived...

This evening we booked a last minute table at The Malsters Arms. I phoned ahead to ask as I normally do if they could cater for me. I was really pleased. When I phoned I asked what I could have and I really fancied the venison burger - did they have any gluten free buns - the chef didn't but...

Braved the narrow and near flooded lanes to find this riverside eatery. Not disappointed. All tables booked for later evening but enjoyed an unhurried meal. Two of us had ham, poached eggs on bubble and squeak fritters, the other the minute steak. All tasty and satisfying. Good range of beers and ciders too. This place would be heaving in the...

Wandered up to the Maltsters last night from our nearby accommodation. Nice location on Bow Creek. A much better decor than when Floyd owned it, cleaner aswell. Certainly busy for food and locals. Good service, food was ok, fresh fish was certainly fresh.

Booked tickets for New Years Eve over the phone and we had a fantastic time. The young staff were friendly and very efficient, beer delicious and the food was plentiful and very tasty. Great band and wonderful people. Wish this was our local!

My wife and I booked a NYE reservation to eat here 2 months in advance - we actually went into the restaurant to make the reservation and got told that it was confirmed. However, the day before, we rang to double check the time and got told there was no booking under our name - in fact they had a...
