about the maltsters

Traditional PUB, Modern twist

The Ranworth Maltsters is a pub and restaurant adjacent to Malthouse Broad at Ranworth. We have welcoming, friendly staff and a warm, relaxed atmosphere. We are located in a beautiful setting with a large terrace and garden adjacent to the broad.

We're dog-friendly inside and out. We support local charity Paws 4 Thought - Norfolk. So, bring your canine friend with you!

Above The Maltsters pub we have our luxury apartment, Ranworth Retreat, offering AirBnB accommodation for those wishing to stay in Ranworth and enjoy the broads and surrounding area. See our Stay In Ranworth page for further details.

By River

The staithe is located approx. 40m from the pub. There are free public moorings, which are owned and operated by the Broads National Park. They're operated on a first come-first served basis, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

The Broad offers lots of space for those boaters preferring to “lay off” with their mud weight. There are also available, at a cost, moorings on the island; although you will need a dinghy to get to the mainland if laying off or mooring at the island. See the Broads Authority website for further details.

If you're travelling by river, please see our river travel page for estimates of approximate travel times.

By Road

We have a large car park opposite the pub which, for our customers visiting us by road, is free.

We also welcome motorhome stopovers - please see our motorhome page for further details.
