Welcome to the Malt Shovel


A traditional pub offering a great selection of real ales and home-cooked food

We do things a bit differently here at the Malt Shovel – we don’t have Sky TV, gaming machines or juke boxes.  What we do have is a warm welcome and a venue where you can meet your loved ones, friends and colleagues alike. We have an open fire, a historic tap bar and an extensive beer garden, all of which can be used for private dining, parties and functions. We have been voted into CAMRA's Good Beer Guide every year since 2009, and have been awarded a certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor for our food.  There’s a lot going on too, with quizzes, a golf society, regular live music and more besides - check out out What's On page to find out the latest!
