About The Malt Shovel
The Malt Shovel, at Barston is a delightful village
pub set in the picturesque Solihull countryside.
Always liked the atmosphere, food and service and last Saturday, again, lived up to high expectations.
Always a delight to visit The Malt Shovel. Customer service and food were once again wonderful.
Always a pleasure to eat here.
The sea bass was very overcooked, sent back and the replacement was equally overcooked. The halibut was quite dry and the mushroom risotto poor to mediocre. According to our fellow diners their steaks were fine. The service and staff were excellent but the quality of the food for the fish meals was not. The starters were excellent.
Lovely evening with great food and drink
We have never been disappointed when we have eaten here. One of our party is a professional chef and I chose to take him to the Malt Shovel as I know the food is always of an excellent standard. Also, as I don't eat meat I am always pleased to see a number of fish dishes to choose from. The third person in our party loved the sticky toffee pudding and butterscotch sauce.
Good food and excellent service.
Staff could not have been more helpful and kind in accommodating one elderly member of our party. Wonderful service, delicious food and lovely atmosphere, we will definitely be returning again soon!

Max ,Helen and the team are fabulous the food outstanding and along with the service its the best place to eat in England
Lovely meal - only criticism is that the food arrived quite quickly - before we had finished our pre dinner drinks . I think this could have been monitored better .
