We visit the Malt Shovel every time we do an exhibition at the NEC .. the staff are lovely, really pleasant, the food is always 5 star and we can always guarantee a very good night both for food and atmosphere, we would like to transport The Malt Shovel to our local area so that we can use it more often ...

Really friendly service. Speed of service excellent. Enjoy the atmosphere. Food was on the whole good but a couple of issues. Have dined with you a few times. Wednesday the steak one of us had was quite tough. The pepper sauce was bland. The Thai curry was excellent.

Very lovely palace to take my partner for her birthday meal. The staff where very helpful in helping me surprise my girlfriend by holding on a bunch of flowers for me then presenting them for me at the time I asked. The whole experience from service and the meal was very enjoyable. Thank you
