Though it boasts the best fish and chip in Lichfield, there’s more to The Malt Bar’s Wade Street premises than battered cod. Using ingredients sourced from local Staffordshire suppliers, The Malt Bar’s head chef has put together a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu that has come to be, for many in Stowe and the heart of the town, a default option for when hunger hits, not least because breakfast is served all day! Complete with live music, sports, and a well-stocked bar, The Malt is a local favourite.
Excellent food/value for money but staff very thin on the ground resulting in service being less than expected which is unfortunate as it was a rare family gathering
Restaurant rang me and told me that they had double booked, just 2 days before we were due to go. Did not offer an alternative time. Disgusting!
Absolutely awful! The first thing we ordered we couldnt have as the freezer had broken the day before so they didn't have any stock (plenty of time to replace it) then took forty minutes for garlic bread to arrive! Starters wernt cleared, we wernt asked if we wanted more drinks, inedible mains arrived another forty minutes later. So bad couldn't eat them, even after complaining the staff still faffed around behind the bar not serving us. There was only one other table in so they wernt even busy. Terrible food and service such a shame.
Proper West Midlands appetites will appreciate The Malt Bar’s full English breakfast, with two Lincolnshire sausages and two rashers of bacon lined up like beasts about to board the Ark next to hog’s pudding, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms, hash brown, egg, quality beans from our favourite Heinz, toast plus a cup of coffee or tea. Timid types can go for the same feast but smaller, lighter, more portable. Omelettes and jacket potatoes give way to an equally hearty lunchtime menu that keeps local workers and residents happy, while the evening menu, with tapas to share, brings a crowd from all around Lichfield.
The crowds come just as readily for The Malt’s schedule of live music and live sports, but there’s nothing better than sitting down to soak up some entertainment while you soak up some boxed camembert with ciabatta, the pie of the day or The Malt Bar’s classic hamburger, Italian gnocchi or Cajun-spiced chicken breast. Even more opulent are this Lichfield bar and restaurant’s grilled meats – fillet rossini, rump, surf & turf, and gammon.
