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!

From Tasmania, Australia & introduced to Europe by blues master Dave Hole in 1994, Rob Tognoni delivers a 100% powerfully charged experience with every performance. There is simply no compromise, which is strongly evident in his music.
After 40 years his explosive guitar playing and unique songs are now being compared with the greats of his genre and have firmly established him in the European venues & festivals as well as gaining many fans of hard blues rock worldwide.
On this months “good grub” night we will be celebrating Burns night with a typical Haggis supper served up with traditional ‘neeps & tatties’ ( tasty sausages for all the none haggis lovers out there )
The Malt shovel is home to over 50 Malt whiskies so some sampling accompanied by some taste notes will be on the agenda alongside some super “Scottish” gin promotions.

Over the years The Blue Bishops have built a reputation both for their studio albums and live performances.
Acknowledged as one of the best live bands on the circuit, on first seeing them at the Bishopstock Festival in Devon back in 1999, Robert Cray remarked ‘I will have to watch my back’. Radio 2’s Paul Jones has called their studio work ‘Superb’ and the music press has consistently praised the calibre of their recordings and live shows.
