We were promptly shown to our table in the restaurant and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. The good was of a very good standard. Would fully recommend the fillet of beef and the rack of lamb as... More

We met friends for a Sunday lunchtime meal. We were escorted to the restaurant and enjoyed a wonderful relaxing time with beautifully cooked and present cuisine.

Took a taxi to this pub on the advice of the concierge at the hotel we were staying at whilst at an exhibition at the NEC recently. The place has been finished really well, not sure how long ago but it was in really good condition & tastefully done. We went on the off chance mid-week but it was probably... More

We never even knew this place existed until we stumbled upon it on trip advisor. So glad we did. There is a lovely bar area where we had a drink before being shown through to the restaurant in the next door building. I decided to go for the pigeon starter which was amazing, served rare and full of flavour. The... More

Popping in on a quiet Tuesday lunchtime, I wasn't expecting such a brilliant experience! instantly greeted by a charming young barman, my husband & I had drinks and a table in no time! a wide range of dishes meant both our tastes were catered for, followed up by an incredible desert! looking forward to coming again in the evening &...

We came across this lovely pub by using an app called "around me" on the iphone. Having visited the NEC earlier in the day we decided to escape and look for a good country pub, having found the Malt Shovel we were not disappointed. Tucked away down a quiet country lane this pub is a real gem. We arrived late... More

A party of eight of us visited the Malt Shovel and can only commend the hospitality and cuisine we experienced. The range of starters and main meals - i cannot comment upon the desserts as we were all too full to enjoy one - is reasonably extensive and there only positive responses from all present. The restaurant area is well... More
