What’s On at The Malt Shovel Tavern

Live Blues

Every Wednesday night, the sound of live blues fills the Malt Shovel Tavern. Bands come from near and far as we try to find the best to entertain you. Gigs start at 8.45pm and admission is free.

Eat, drink & be merry!

We eat well at The Malt Shovel Tavern. We don't have a regular evening menu, it's true, but twice a month we have special foodie nights to delight your taste buds. Our Curry Club is perfect if you like things spicy, while our Good Grub evenings aim to put a twist on popular favourites.

For the love of sport!

Ok, so we're not a sports bar, but we do love our sport, especially our local and national teams. You'll find the big occasions on our big screen, so watch the calendar, get a group of mates together and ask about our Sports Party Packages!

Quiz Night

Test your general and trivia knowledge at The Malt Shovel Tavern. We run two quizzes a month on the first and third Thursday at 8pm. Maximum team size is 8 players and entry is £1 per player. There are cash prizes for the winners.

Sam Kelly’s Blues Band
May 31 @ 8:45 pm – 11:00 pm
Sam Kelly's Blues Band

Sam started playing back in in the early ’70s on a kit that belonged to his brother.  Back in those days, playing the drums was his form of “anger management” – but out of that came discipline, creativity and obviously some musical talent!

Sam’s long career covers live gigs, festivals, drum workshops, theatre work, radio and TV sessions, both in the UK and overseas. He has been voted into Blues In Britain magazine Gallery of the Greats, as a five-times winner of the ‘UK Drummer of the Year’ award.  In 2014 Sam was awarded first place in the “Drummer” category for Blues Matters Writer’s Poll and runner-up in the British Blues Awards 2016.  Combining his years of experience and his reputation within the UK blues fraternity, Sam is a highly accessible, sought after drummer.
