The building was originally built as a Malt House around 1640. The food preparation area at the rear of the kitchen was the original kiln to heat the barley.


Records show that in 1819, Richard Thomas was the maltster and took an apprentice James Wellings, aged twelve. By 1841, the owner was George Hamer. In 1851 there were probably three maltster in Clun which was at that time a major market town in the area. By Edwardian times The Maltings was called 'Old Talbot' and run by Joe Luther. The building has three floors with an exterior stone staircase which enabled barley and water to be taken to the first floor where the perforations in the floor allowed heat from the kiln below to carry out the malting process.

Actual comments taken from Trip Advisor
We visited with two young children and were all made very welcome. Good coffee and a huge selection of homemade cakes (six I seem to recall). I had lemon drizzle cake, the others had chocolate and orange. Both were delicious. This is a delightful little cafe and not to be missed if you're in the area. I should also say that Clun is a lovely town with a castle and museum that are worth visiting. Visited August 2016

Took a day trip to the village of Clun with my Wife and her sister to visit the place where their parents and grandparents were from. We arrived just before lunch time and purely by chance while wandering around this small village found a little hidden gem of a place to have lunch. Great menu of freshly made food prepared and served by the couple who own the business. A very pleasant and satisfying surprise. Visited June 2016

We have visited the Maltings Cafe many times over 35 years staying in this beautiful part of Shropshire. Called in this morning for breakfast before setting off home. I had the full deal and it was delicious, fresh ingredients and freshly cooked. My wife's bacon and egg roll received the thumbs up too. Excellent value and friendly welcome. A highly recommended stop for snack, good coffee and more. Visited June 2016
