My Fighter 4/Sorcerer 6 has the ability to cast haste on himself, which says that he

gains an additional action

but it can only be used to take the attack action (one weapon attack only).

Would he be able to cast a spell and than make a melee attack as well on the same turn whilst he is hasted?

Yes, that is exactly what it means - you use your normal action to take the Cast a Spell action and the action Haste gives you to take the Attack Action but you can only make one attack with that action.
