The heart of the broads


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. 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 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 moorings available 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. Non-patrons visiting Ranworth may park on our premises for a small fee, payable at the bar. 

We also welcome motorhome stopovers - please see our motorhome page for further details and to submit details of your stay. We're unable to accept unattended vehicles overnight.


Our car park is monitored by CCTV for security reasons.
