About The Malt Shovel
The Malt Shovel, at Barston is a delightful independant village
pub set in the picturesque Solihull countryside.
We had a great family meal at the Malt Shovel when we met up last weekend. None of us had been before. We had drinks in the lovely garden and then sat inside for the meal. The staff were fantastic and everyone’s food was delicious. Would thoroughly recommend and we will definitely go back again
great food, great staff
Excellent service by a lady ( apologies I cannot remember her name ..she is from Bulgaria ) Who recognised us and was immediately warm and welcoming & chatted easily throughout our time in the restaurant, she consistently gives super customer service & is attentive and informative . The only feedback (constructive ) is that it would be nice to see a change of menu reflective of the summer season, ( however I understand as the premises has just reopened following lockdown this may not have been possible.
Amazingly tasty food as always and fabulous smiling and welcoming staff. A safe environment to be in during the pandemic, all needs pre-empted. Nice surprise dining on Wednesday to get £20 off the bill in line with the government incentive.
So delighted to return to The Malt Shovel. Lovely, friendly experience as per usual. Safe environment with staff taking all health and safety precautions. Food, as usual, great and service excellent. You always look after my elderly mother very well. Thank you to all.
Long awaited re opening following Covid 19 lockdown- not disaapointed! Faggot was light and well seasoned, a delight! Fish and chips elevated to another level. Breadand butter pud was devoured by a very happy hubby whilst I had the tiramasu in a tea cup, every mouthful was beautifull. Service was efficient, attentive and friendly without being intrusive. We felt spoiled. So nice to be back!

Very friendly and welcoming staff, food choice was great and yummy, and the ambience very relaxing. Was really lovely to finish our meal with a drink outside in the garden. Spring has sprung!
Very pleased with the staff and food, my nephew is autistic and we were accomadated very well and enjoyed our meal. Staff were attentive and were very polite
We had a great time. Very good service and food. We thought that perhaps the dessert choice could have been wider, but the quality of all dishes was great.
great food and atmosphere - never a bad meal. thank you
Only criticism my seat was constantly being knocked as insufficient room between mine and another table passage when staff passed
Great service. Staff informative when giving guidance on or recommending dishes. Delicious food!
Excellent Beef roast, the best I've had in ages!
