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!

Split Whiskers - Cancelled

Split Whiskers have their roots firmly planted in Chicago blues, crossing boundaries into rock, Americana and more than a hint of the Delta. The band’s fame is spreading and they are becoming one of the busiest bands at blues venues around the UK, in particular in great demand on the Festival circuit. Their superb musicianship, along with their infectious humour on stage, promises a great evening’s entertainment.
