Good Food!!!
The Malt Shovel was recommended by a friend as serving excellent food. It wasn't just the food that was excellent, the service was impeccable. All the above and we even turned up on spec.

A Real Find!
Nice out of the way pub, we were greeted in a very friendly manner and things just went from good to better.... lovely atmosphere, pleasant surroundings with exceptional choice, quality and quantity of food (with two specials menu's) Food obviously freshly cooked and much home made to a very high quality and all at a very reasonable cost... we have decided to become regular visitors and take along our friends and family too. Long may this venue prosper

Traditional pub , superb beers and great staff
This Public House, is one of those rare finds, good old fashioned service, (you may wait a white for food during busy times) but when you get your grub ! oh boy, superb quality, choice and lots of it,- Sunday Dinners are best booked well in advance, and all the staff and landlord know what good decent service is all about,- Superb value for money and great guest beers, for those who like a pint or two, - sadly a local communuty pub/restaurant, that is all too rare. Give it a try and you may want to come again

Good food, but
Hopefully, ours was just a one off experience - but I took a family of friends to the Malt Shovel for theirfood reputation.
The food was indeed excellent - but it took over an hour to arrive. In fact two other tables arrived and ordered after us, but were eating a long time before us.
What was particularly sad, was that after chasing up out meal, the three adults meals arrived, but we were told that the two childrens meals of simply burger/chips and beans would be delayed.
Oh well - don't let this put anyone off. The food WAS worth it! (In the end)
