Good Value.. Massive portions.. Amazing food

Went here with friends for the first time. Wow what a lovely little hidden gem of a restaurant. I really loved how little & homely this pub restaurant felt. It was very clean & welcoming. The menu is really good with lots on it to suit everyone with some unusual dishes if you fancy something... read more

Although it has been approx. a year since our friends and my husband and myself have eaten there, the food remains very good. The problem now is the lack of space. There are two area's, one where the main bar is + the usual stand up bar noise and the other area which is through the back of the pub... More

My friend searched for places to go for a mixed girl and came across this place. So we arrived and nothing special to look at! Nice play area and benches outside for the families. Pub was very small and waited around 5 minutes for a member of staff to say hello (3 passed us) once acknowledge we were able to... More

Great meal , lovely food , polite staff , really nice. The children's meals are also good quality which I find really important as some places find it acceptable to serve children appalling looking food , the malt shovel did not and we were very pleased :). Extra thanks to the waitress / bar lady who rescues my daughters tippee... More

Service was rude and quickly rushed us through our meals. Good was okay, but we felt unwelcome so we left a small tip as we always do, regardless of how good it is and left.

Have been there twice now after hearing such good reports from people, took friends from another town, the food was delicious and could not be faulted, somebody on here has said portions are too big, this is absolutely right servings are very generous but how anyone could complain about that is beyond me!

Regular visitors although haven't been for a while, need to book, small pub and very busy! Great meal, huge portions, great choice on the menu. Only down side for me is the service, meals were all served within a reasonable time but the staff are rather in different! I mean the bar staff, serving staff are very nice, don't expect... More

If your looking for 5 star 8 course meal. Maybe don't come here. But if you looking for good, whole, English pub food then this place is a must. The food is of a good quality and there is loads of it!!! Be warned. Good value for money.

We decided to eat here after researching where was good in the area. The Shovel is a modestly sized pub, serving typical bar food. Two of us ordered the fish, but two fillets on a plate was just too much - it looked too much food and was too much food. And the fish was clearly out of the freezer.... More

We go as often as we can. A sunday dinner here is amazing but you need to prebook! The steaks are amazing and service is always friendly. Highly recommended
