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 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!
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's a £50 bar tab for the winning team.
We will be open, ready and roaring to go from 8am today. Watch the 2019 Rugby World Cup Final live from Japan, with breakfast and festival beer deals to keep you going through all the excitement.
You can recover in the evening when our little oven of joy starts turning out delicious stone-baked pizzas on the terrace between 7.30pm and 10.30pm. We think you will need the sustenance, as Northampton’s hottest mod and ska band takes to the stage at 8.30pm to keep the party going!
