About The Malt Shovel
The Malt Shovel, at Barston is a delightful independant village
pub set in the picturesque Solihull countryside.
All round very good quality. Hot and fresh-just as it should be. Waitress Dobrina just saying right level of attendance.
Unfortunately service was not as good as usual. We waited quite long for drinks and were not asked for second drinks. Food was good as always. The waitress passed by 6 times and did not see us waiving the hand indicating we wanted to pay - we payed on our way out. Unfortunately by the service this time.
The team were so efficient and friendly and went out of their way to make my 18 month granddaughter welcome. The food was also excellent.
My wife had the hake which was over salted and dry. There were no sauce options with the ribeye steak nor typical accompaniments such as onion rings. The chips were bland and yo have stopped doing sweet potatoe fries. Standards have slipped since the takeover
Your dining experience was great, amazing food and the staff were very attentive
A not-too-long menu with daily specials was perfect. Friendly efficient service - will be back.
We both ordered the beef and was offered it Pink or well done, we both chose it pink and it just melted on your mouth, great atmosphere and we will definitely be going back
Great Sunday lunch atmosphere great .... and puddings were off the scale
Thank you so much for fitting us in for a party of 21 for Sunday lunch at just 5 days' notice. We had a wonderful meal - several of our group commented that it was the best Sunday roast they had ever eaten - and the service was excellent too. We will definitely be back.
A lovely cosy setting for a small family birthday lunch. Thoughtful staff, delicious food. We’ll be back!
We had a great meal with friends. Thoroughly recommend
Best place around, always good
Our waitress was very attentive and friendly.
My husband and I enjoyed an excellent meal. We particularly enjoyed the dessert, with a lovely glass of wine, that was chosen to go with it gorgeous! The service was excellent, with a very personable member of staff serving. Well done.
I have already left a review on Trip Advisor. We were very happy overall. I had the crispy squid which l found delicious and it was good to have something different. My 2 friends ordered the cod and they enjoyed theirs. The service was excellent. Thank you.
The food was delicious and the waiting staff were very attentive. We had a lovely wedding anniversary.
Sadly those of us that had pork found it very fatty, but as this was a birthday celebration we didn’t want to cause a fuss.
Charming staff and excellent food on a busy Sunday lunchtime.
Excellent service, lovely table in restaurant, great food...wine a tad pricey!
Excellent meal: good wine, perfectly cooked fish and outstanding scallop starter. Thank you.
The food was outstanding and we very much appreciated the extra effort made for my mum's birthday meal.
As always, first class food and service.
