We went here as we couldn't get in to our first choice. A very warm welcome with only one other couple in, though it was only a Tuesday evening. Another couple of groups came in later. I started with the scallops and husband had the squid salad. Beautifully presented. We both had rib eye steak medium rare, very nicely cooked... More

Good food and drink in an attractive village pub that welcomes drinkers as well as those looking to eat. Reasonable prices for the quality of the food. Not many tables so booking advised.

So disappointed last night, checked online and found what is apparently and old but still live link to their site that they accepted dogs, they don't! We were told that we could sit outside, which we were not exactly happy to do but willing none the less, having heard good things. Upon venturing outside all of the tables in the... More

We had lunch at the Malt Shovel with the kids while on holiday in Harrogate and en route to Stump Cross Caverns. Fantastic meal in charming surroundings. The children's menu was a smaller and tailored version of the adults' fare: much more salubrious than the sausage-and-chips options offered elsewhere, and I couldn't believe how much food they ate. Our locally... More

The pub is lovely but the staff were not very accomodating infact they were a little bit miserable, they made us feel uncomfortable looking at the photo's like we were silly tourists.

We found this restaurant by chance and were delighted to find so many gluten free options on the menu. Food was freshly cooked and of good quality. My wife had the steak and said that it was the best steak she has had for some years! Portion sizes were sensible, good selection of desserts. Service was friendly, prices reasonable. We... More

Very enjoyable and tasty Bank Holiday lunch in this well decorated and authentic pub. Staying at the local, and equally nice, Cud Life campsite we found this eatery by chance on our journey home. Food was very high quality and the price reasonable given that what you're getting is fresh and created by people that clearly know how to put... More

We visited here as a family with friends on Friday evening. The decor is welcoming & sophisticated. We just had mains and deserts. Both my son & myself had fish, skinny fries & pies, it was amazing. Really fresh tasting fish, large portion. My husband's steak was cooked to his liking with a flavoursome pepper sauce which did not over... More

Following a visit to relatives my mother and I were looking for a place to eat prior to a seven clock meeting. Being undecided we found the sign to The Malt Shovel at a roundabout and decided to follow the road which did go on for a long while to our destination (we discovered a much quicker way back!) but...

A little out of the way, but a very nice pub/restaurant. Food not cheap but about right for the price. Staff really nice and helpful. We had to sit in the lean to/conservatory which was pleasant enough but would suggest you sit inside if possible. Well worth a visit.
