Closed to protect the community

The Malt Shovel Tavern is now closed.

Thank you to everyone concerned with the pub, especially our loyal and special customers. All we ask is, please do what you are being asked to do: stay at home, stay safe and help to protect vulnerable people in the community.

We'll get to the other side better and stronger - and itching for a pint!

From all of us at The Malt Shovel Tavern

Sorry, no food...

Sorry, our kitchen is currently closed for refurbishment and we won't be serving lunches for the next few weeks. But if you do get peckish, we will have snacks available in the bar.

1st and 3rd Thursday every month @ 8.30pm. £1 entry per team member and cash prizes for the winners.

The home of real ale in Northampton

The Malt Shovel Tavern has been specialising in real ales for more than 20 years and has won many awards, including Northampton's community pub of the year and Northamptonshire CAMRA Pub of the Year.  We've got a great selection of award-winning real ales, single malt whiskies, Belgian bottled beers and continental lagers to tempt you, as well as a great line-up of local, regional and national blues talent. What you won't find is a pool table, jukebox or fruit machines - just a great place to relax and enjoy a good drink!
