About The Malt Shovel
The Malt Shovel, at Barston is a delightful village
pub set in the picturesque Solihull countryside.
Helen and her staff gave us excellent service We were very lucky to have been able to eat outside. In fact every one of us (party of 6 ladies) had a throughly enjoyable evening .
Thanks for organizing small cakes for birthday!
Incorrect starter served....steak was very tough and barely edible....wedges were soggy....
Very enjoyable lunch with excellent food
Felt a little bit rushed to order when there were hardly any people there, but as always the food was wonderful.
We had a wonderful evening, we hadn’t visited the Malt Shovel for some time but we will be returning again very soon. We had a very enjoyable time.
Thank you for making my daughter’s 18th Birthday so special! Your food is excellent!
Excellent meal with swift (but not too swift) service. Friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. Would recommend.
Fantastic family Sunday lunch !
An enjoyable lunch. Good food and service.
We had lunch in the restaurant rather than the bar area, the girls that served us were lovely, helpful and friendly but I just feel that they could do with a little more training to refine their skills. Service was not as slick as it could/should be.
Lovely country pub near M42
Lovely food, great service, better to eat in the bar area if possible for more atmosphere.
Lovely food. I had the river trout - excellent! Basic menu was fine but Specials Menu was very good. Would be nice to have a few vegetables included as standard. Good service and pleasant atmosphere. Easy to book. Happy to recommend.
Just a bit cosy for 15 people downstairs but otherwise great lunch thx
The food was tasty and well presented and the service was very good. We thought the pub was looking a little dated and the toilets definately need a refurb
Great pub, definitely be back
Well cooked food, pleasant outdoor table in patio area
Excellent food and service in a lovely restaurant setting
Was seated at 12pm for lunch , great relaxed atmosphere, food and service was fantastic , highly recommend
Great venue, atmosphere and beer, on our visit the food was great and just a smidge off fantastic, strangely the chips were disappointing, didn’t spoil a lovely evening!!
I told you before I booked that one guest has a mustard allergy, but when we asked about food contents we were told that "chef can't guarantee that there is no mustard..." A chef that does not know what is in his/her food is unbelivable.
