The Malt Cross

As one of the only surviving Victorian music halls in the country, The Malt Cross is an iconic building which has become well known for having a great selection of beer...

Built in 1877, The Malt Cross is a Grade II listed building and an architectural wonder with six levels, including underground caves. It’s a stone’s throw away from Market Square, meaning it has been a popular spot for many years.

On the taps, there are sixteen keg beers and seven cask ales that are usually locally produced. With great acoustics and plenty of things to drink, you’d be mad to miss one of their jazz nights or open mics.
