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!

The very best of British Rhythm and Blues. A high energy, performance of original songs influenced by Rory Gallagher, Dr Feelgood, Tom Petty, The Stones, George Thorogood, Paul Kossoff, Paul Rodgers, Andy Fraser… Their crossover blues with a rock influence pushes the boundaries through strong songs, great hooks and some scintillating playing. The cool juxtaposition between the subtle and the frenetic and the transitions from quiet to loud, is at the core of the unique Sharpeez’ style that is distinctive in the generic blues/rock field.
