Outstanding food quality in good large portions and all whilst reasonably priced. However, a little off the beaten track but in this sat nav world should not pose a problem.

We had a great time here. Friendly pub atmosphere. Food was fantastic and service quick whilst not impacting on quality of food. You'll have to travel out of Nuneaton to get better.

What a lovely meal. I had steak and it was delicious. The salad that accompanied it was a meal in itself. Children's meal also excellent. Will definitely be coming again. Staff friendly and so were the locals. We sat in the bar as had our dog with us and what a lovely experience it was.

After a mornings walk through Hartshill Hayes and the surrounding countryside there was nothing better than having lunch at the Malt Shovel. Good beer, and good basic food in large quantities, perfect to do another six miles in the afternoon. Very friendly staff.

Ate here in the past and the food was tasty and cheap. Big portions and very good value for money. You have to book though as it's always busy at weekends.
