Eat, drink & be merry!

We eat well at The Malt Shovel Tavern. We don't have a regular evening menu, it's true, but we often have special foodie nights to delight your taste buds, including our Curry Club.

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!

Ben Joseph & the Lay-Lows

If you like country-blues harmonica coupled with upbeat, dance your ass off rock n’ roll then this is your bag.

Ben Joseph is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Alabama and cultivated in New Orleans who leads the Lay-Lows to the land of sexy southern blues rocknroll. Ben melds his range of music experiences, from playing harmonica in Cajun-country bands to shredding electric guitar in hip-hop groups, to create a live show that is drenched in country, blues, rock and soul. The Lay-Lows consist of drummer Vincent Cudet, guitarist JB Dano, and bassist Jordan Liardon.
