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!
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.
On Christmas Eve 2017 we shall be open from 12 noon until 11pm. There will be NO Sunday roast on the day but the normal snack bar menu will be available from 12 – 4pm.
We’ll also have live music from The Electric Experience from 4pm. In its brief history, The Electric Experience has performed at many major festivals, toured much of Europe and played in countless venues and clubs up and down the country, making many friends along the way which is demonstrated by a large and faithful fan club. This exposure has generated attention from radio stations with live sessions and interest from record labels both at home and overseas.
We’ve a lively afternoon planned for Boxing Day! Brighton Riot will be playing for us again from 2pm with their lively mix of popular Mod and Rock songs. It’s the perfect opportunity to dance off some of those Christmas dinner calories! The kitchen will be closed on the day, but if the dancing doesn’t keep you warm, our hot pasties available in the bar will!
