Whether you're here for a lunchtime special or an evening drink with friends, visiting us is always a great experience. Drop by to relax and sample our diverse menu, range of drinks, promotions and events: they all help to make Malt Shovel in Shardlow different. And, of course, our friendly service comes at no extra charge.

This charming canalside pub located within the conservation area in Shardlow near Derby. Dating from 1799, the Malt Shovel still retains its original beams and floors which help towards making it a charming village pub.  You will enjoy watching all the narrow boats and cruisers pass by, whether sat outside in summer or inside in winter by the warmth of the real fire.


More than anything we appreciate the trade from the locals and our regulars.  We stage regular entertainment and varied menus on our Thursday evening dining so that the Malt Shovel can have an appeal for everyone. 


You'll savour our selection of real ales, lagers, fine wines and non-alcoholic drinks as well as our teas and coffees - the perfect way to spend time with friends.


We have a wide selection of snacks and freshly made sandwiches. At lunchtimes, we offer menus that include both traditional, home-cooked meals and light snacks using freshly prepared local produce.  In fact you will only ever find fresh vegetables cooked daily on our menu.


We're rightly famed for our well kept Marstons Pedigree and our charismatic staff will all enjoy looking after you on your visit.

Lena, Ksenia and their team look forward to welcoming you, whether you're having a snack at lunchtime or coming in for a drink with friends in the evening!
