Although it was el fresco dining due to the pandemic lockdown rules, every effort had been made to create an enjoyable dining experience

Fantastic food and service, but the outdoor heating need improvement as we were cold throughout the meal

Had a great first post-lockdown lunch yesterday. Plenty warm enough in the covered area and the roast cod special was delicious. Best was the lovely waitress who chatted to me while I waited for my friend and made me feel so welcome.

Food as good as ever. Great service especially given the cold, wet weather that the waiting staff had to contend with. They served with friendly politeness and smiles. Looking forward to when we can eat inside.

First time visiting, great food, good service, good atmosphere. Just cocktails prices were a little steep for the volume of drink you actually get.

We were looking for somewhere for a girly lunch & I am delighted to have found the Malt Shovel. We sat in the marquee & for a wet & windy day it was perfect. It was actually quite warm even though no heating was on. The food was delicious & cocktails superb. Overall really impressed with our visit.

Such a great day - food and service were excellent! Thank you - not even the wet and cold bank holiday weather could spoil our day - we were nicely dry under the cover of their new marquee.

A real treat. Lovely garden setting, shielded from the elements. Happy friendly staff and The Sunday Roast we have been dreaming about for months.

Another fantastic Sunday meal, my only gripe would be that we waited an hour for our first course, but realise it was quite busy! Chris!

Members of our family met up from the South and the West and the Malt Shovel was in an ideal location to access the M42 and M40. We had a lovely meal, although for a long journey home thought the portions were a bit on the small side. However, we had very attentive service, the outdoor environment was ideal, meeting the Covid restrictions and the food was good and very tasty. Thank you for making our afternoon so pleasant.
