Never disappointed with this restaurant, always look forward to visiting here. Great beer for my husband and the menu has a splendid choice plus 'Specials' which consists of a variety of fish meals. The atmosphere is lively, especially in the bar which has the same menu as served in the restaurant, which too has a good ambiance but not as... More

I was one of a group of 12 friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed our food and wine. The waitresses dealt expertly with the large number and the whole atmosphere and experience was brilliant. Will book again.

We were disappointed with The Malt shovel considering that when we went a few weeks ago it had so many good reviews. I have noticed the last couple of weeks it has got some bad reviews, well this is going to be another one I am afraid. Had a starter of pork from the specials board which was a fusion... More

We went for a family meal to the Malt Shovel to celebrate a birthday and we were not disappointed.

The atmosphere was relaxed and the food excellent both in flavour and presentation. I will definitely be going back... More

It is primarily a fish restaurant and tonight I chose one of the specials on the blackboard, Turbot, cheesy mash and spinach. £19.95. It was really average, a bit tasteless, I expected more for that price. A Crepe Suzette was my choice to follow £6,... More

Where can you seat 12 ladies of a certain age who want to catch up with friends rather than eat? I thought the choice of venue was a ittle strange as it had been years since I had eaten there and I remembered the restaurant as being expensive with small portions and that the patrons wouldn't take too kindly if...
