Malt & Hops is a traditional 1-room free house dating from 1749. We are a Real Ale focused pub and have a broad cross section of customers. We also have a great selection of Malt Whiskies as well as our house lager "Leith Lager" at a reasonable £2.50 a pint, Tennents, Williams Draught 4%, Belhaven Best, Guinness, Grolsch, Stowford Press and Addlestones Cloudy Cider on tap at all times. Our guest beer is Fruli at present, might become a regular ! Dogs (on leashes) are most welcome.
The Malt & Hops places great store in the quality and diversity of the real ales and as a regular in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide, we are pleased to feature in the 2014 edition.
We have an ever changing range of real ales, featured on 8 traditional hand pumps at any one time. We try to get as many new and one-off ales as possible, especially Scottish microbreweries, whilst working through the old favourites from north and south of the border. In fact, we get through so many great and exciting new beers that every week at the Malt & Hops is like a mini beer festival !
Full Pub Lunch Menu 12-2pm Wednesday - Friday and bar snacks (Stovies, Toasties etc) available at all times.

Great stuff - we're proud to announce we are in the 2014 Good Beer Guide. Celebrating with our usual mix of intriguing newbies and old classics. The new season hops have just been hung up and are currently imbuing the hostelry with their beneficial aromas - don't miss out.
The draughts have been shuffled about a bit, we now have Fruli Strawberry Wheat Beer and Williams draught (4%). Tasty stuff - try them, you might be surprised !
On the newbie front, Oakham give us exclusive access to their unique brews as well as the "specials" from their associated brewers via our "Oakademy" arrangement.
In the cellar and on the bar, several new ones from Raw, Oakham, Wharfedale, Great Heck, Crouch Vale. Enjoy !
