We are currently closed due to COVID-19


We will be shut until further notice, but please keep an eye out here and on our social media channels for regular updates on other services which we may still be able to provide

Although the pub is currently closed, we are still running our weekly quiz on Monday nights!

If you head to our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/themaltshoveldartford/) you'll be able to find the question sheets posted at 8.45pm and the answer sheets at 10.30pm.

All you have to do is email your answers to themaltshoveldartford@gmail.com at some point between those two times to take part - good luck!

With Young's London Original and Special and St Austell's Tribute always on tap, plus a great selection of guest beers, it's no surprise that we've found our way into the CAMRA Good Beer Guide every year since 2009!

Keeping you entertained...

There's a lot going on here - from our popular weekly quiz or our live music and DJ nights, to our famous barbecues or our monthly jazz jam sessions, there's something for everyone!
