Conveniently situated just ﬁve minutes from the M62, the picturesque countryside village of Rishworth is home to The Malthouse country pub and restaurant. The Malthouse has recently undergone extensive refurbishment, so the original stone features and log burning ﬁres complement the interior’s contemporary, yet rustic ﬁnish.
The extensive menu has something for everybody, showcasing the best British classics along with a range of modern dishes. Particularly impressive is the salmon, which is cured and smoked in-house and is simply beautiful. Other stand-out dishes include the locally and ethically sourced steaks, which are cooked to perfection on the restaurant’s Kopa charcoal oven, lending the meat a wonderfully unique barbecue ﬂavour. Wash it down with one of the pub’s real ales. If you still have room for afters, the Earl Grey sticky toffee pudding with Maldon-salted caramel sauce is deliciously decadent. To end your meal on a savoury note, opt for the selection of local Yorkshire cheeses, complemented by chutney, celery and biscuits. You won’t just ﬁnd great food at The Malthouse; they also have ﬁve guest rooms for the perfect night’s rest. The peaceful, scenic location and laid-back atmosphere make relaxation unavoidable. Whether you’re staying the night or popping in for an evening meal, you’re sure to be charmed by this delightful Yorkshire retreat.
