Lovely grub

A lovely pub with great pub style food :) always busy here so I would definitely recommend booking a table before going! Service is good and atmosphere is great :) don't eat to much before you go though as portion sizes are very big!

Would never go to this place again! Female staff are very rude. Rang and booked the table 2 weeks prior and asked for high chairs, upon arrival there were no high chairs and we were left to arrange the table ourselves, of which was very difficult given the very small place that the restaurant is situated. Female staff were very... More

The portions are huge and very well priced! The steaks are lovely and they do a huge range of different grills, all worth a try! Sometimes difficult to get a table when you just turn up, so always worth prebooking but goes to show how good the meals are!

Just walked in on a Monday evening to get a table for my mum and dads 25th wedding anniversary, and asked for a table for 4, looking around there were no reserved signs on tables. We stated we didn't mind sitting in the bar, 'no we haven't got any' !!!! That's it no sorry or anything. Visited the malt on... More

We will never go this 'restaurant' again. The food was acceptable but the service was dreadful The female staff are rude, unhelpful and sullen They spoilt our birthday meal celebration as soon as we stepped foot in the restaurant But I'm sure that they really don't care anyway Give the Malt Shovel a wide berth.

Booked in advance for some lunch. The table we got was a tiny little corner table right next to the toilet door, with me having to tuck in my chair to let people squeeze past every time they needed to go to the toilet. They messed up our order, we waited for around 45 minutes for what seemed like they'd... More

Avoid this place at all costs. My partner and I came here as we had heard good things about the place, however, it was the worst service we'd had in a long time. Firstly we were given drinks that were in filthy glasses covered in foundation and lipstick which made me feel sick, the barmaid changed the glasses but seemed... More

Took my family here to celebrate my birthday. Restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived but bar area was full. We waited quite a while for our orders to be delivered to table. All of us enjoyed our respective meals and were too full to eat a dessert Found the staff on that night to be neither pushy or helpful.... More
