A traditional pub offering a great selection of real ales and home cooked food. The Malt Shovel is a bit different - 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 a lovely 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 lots going on too: quizzes, a golf society, live music and lots more. Check out the What's On page!
Christmas is just round the corner and we've had our annual delivery of Young's Winter Warmer. Come in and grab a pint for yourself!
Our sausages, steaks and roast dinner meats are supplied by local farm butchery Glovers in Longfield. Our signature cauliflower cheese is so well known that the Malt Shovel is known as the Home of the Cauliflower Cheese!Take a look at our menus
We love our ales - Youngs Bitter & Special along with St Austell Tribute are on tap with guest beers each week. CAMRA have voted us into the good beer guide every year since 2009 and we are delighted to announce we are in the new 2020 guide!
