THE MALT HOUSE

Fulham

In a cobbled square just five minutes walk from Fulham Broadway tube, the Malt House serves some of Fulham’s best food in its stylish bar, dining room and secret garden.
The menus combine spice-based and Mediterranean dishes, from superfood salads to the best dirty burger and pulled pork this side of Shoreditch. The Malt House mood blends chilled and relaxed during the day with vibrant and energetic by night, making it an excellent place with a crowd or dinner for two. With great access to Central London and the South West, our six, sumptuous hotel rooms provide the perfect base for a Capital stopover.
