Malden man left this review about The Venture Inn

Situated a short walk uphill from the town centre this is an attractive looking pub with a black and white Tudor appearance along with panels of herringbone brickwork. Two rooms remain, each needing separate access from outside, the L-shaped slightly split-level front room is the lounge and has most of the bar although this does run through into the larger and squareish bar beyond. It was a bit of a miserable afternoon when I visited on Saturday however I was totally unprepared for the wall of heat that greeted me on entering, you certainly didn't need to keep your coat on in here. This was not unrelated to the sheer number of people crammed into the public bar, standing room only as the rugby international was shown on no less than four big screens, one on each wall.
I retreated to the calmer surroundings of the lounge, boarded flooring, mustard coloured roughcast upper walls, the ceiling in front of the bar is very low. Leaded windows, various framed bits and bobs on the walls, pot plants on the window cills and a dark brick fireplace down one end. Regular seating, mostly at upholstered benches with green padded upper cushions as well as small and bar stools.
Service was good having regard to how busy the pub was, five handpumps, Pride, Doom Bar, Tribute, Harvey's Sussex Best are all regulars, the guest was Castle Rock Most Haunted. All five handpumps are located in the lounge. Food is served, mainly from the reasonably priced Thai menu, a few people were partaking and it did look rather good.
There is a strict over 21s policy and signs state that football shirts are not permitted (rugby ones seemingly are!).
I quite liked it here but I think I would prefer to visit at a less busy time.
