About The Malt Shovel
The Malt Shovel, at Barston is a delightful village
pub set in the picturesque Solihull countryside.
Excellent. My steak was on the small side (hence four stars rather than five for value), but cooked nicely. My request to substitute grapes/chutney/celery on the cheese board for more Stilton was done without quibble. Our party comprised four adults and two children - everybody left happy and full! Thank you!
I think the price charged for beer is on the expensive side as it is around £1 per pint compared with other like establishments in the area
Nice to be back :-)
I think you should consider some form of lunchtime offer so that you remain competitive Pleasant service and good food
Staff are always really helpful and attentive.
Lovely Sunday roast. Pork just melted and vegetables cooked beautifully. Xmas pudding and ice cream enjoyed by all. Will definitely be visiting again
Excellent service, great quality food and very accommodating with regard to dietary requirements
Table wasn’t quite ready so we stayed in the bar and had a drink which was fine, however 20 minutes later we had to ask if our table was ready which it soon was. Other than this small issue, food, service and location were all excellent
Scallops and lobster starters were excellent! Have already recommended the place to 3 of my friends. Excellent.
Everything was up to its usual std. Very enjoyable. We'll be back.!
Unfortunately the bar area was holding a private function so the restaurant was where we sat. It does not have the atmosphere we like. However, everything else was superb.
Great Food and lovely atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and service was efficient
Good service and good food. It was a bit quite but it was early on a Monday!
Great service and food!
Always feel relaxed and always enjoy the food. Good choice in food and drinks
Very friendly, good food. We found some menu choices rather dear for what they were compared to previous visits.
The quality of the food is not good enough to justify the price, fairly average and bland, wouldn’t survive in London.
Brilliant meal, brilliant service, will definitely be back. Many thanks!
Love this place
Fabulous, as always.
As usual food and service was excellent
High quality food and drinks with excellent service as always. The warm friendly atmosphere in the bar is perfect for a quiet dinner or celebration. The staff are knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. We had a range of dishes in this visit, and all lived up to the high expectations we have of The Malt Shovel. Always a pleasure.
Excellent evening of food & a little drink :-) We actually arrived earlier than expected and the staff were very capable in the way they handled the situation. The food was excellent and the value exceeded expectations. We will definitely be coming back the next time we are in the area.
We love this venue for our family boxing day meal. fabulous food and excellent service. Highly recommended
Fabulous food, service and atmosphere - a great night with live entertainment. Highly recommended...
