Already proving to be a popular choice, a clean, crisp,

refreshing beverage for the upcoming summer months! 



New Guest Ale now in - Wychwood's HOBGOBLIN GOLD


A paler ale,  4.2% ABV



As it has proven to be a popular choice , we have kept on the Saddle Tank Guest  Ale for another month  -  a lovely rounded amber ale 3.8%abv.





Come and join us for our 2nd MALTFEST  gin and cider festival. We have a whole host of fantastic gins for you to choose from along with some tasty ciders for you to try !

There will be live music on Saturday from 5.30pm - 10pm on our outdoor stage and Sunday from 3pm - 9pm.  BBQ also availale Saturday and Sunday 3pm - 8pm. 



When Marstons asked us if we wanted our own house ale, well we jumped at the chance.  So we are very proud to now sell our own Painted Lady.


It is named after the canal boat of a much loved regular of ours, Mike Frost, who sadly passed away in 2014. 


 Painted Lady is a golden coloured ale with a floral hoppy taste.  And very popular we are pleased to say!

Environmental Health Review - Jan 2017


We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded a 5 star assessment from the environmental health.  This is the highest rating possible and is testament to the strict hygiene controls we operate in our Malt Shovel kitchen.  


We now offer meals on a Wednesday evening between 5pm - 8pm.  A selection of 5 favourites - such as Chilli con Carne, Fish & Chips, Liver & Onion, Curry of the Day, Steak & Ale Pie. Keeping it simple for a mid week tea time treat!

New programme for the coming months
We've put together another entertainments programme for you to enjoy.  See our events page for details.

Our range of premium lagers has just been crowned with the addition of Peroni.  Peroni is now in Shardlow!

We are really proud to have Jamaican Red Stripe lager on draught.

We are pleased to say that San Miguel has been added to our strong portfolio of draught beers.

We have now introduced Hobgoblin on keg.  This massively popular ale is satisfyingly creamy and slightly chilled, and is being very well received from our real ale drinkers. It offers an interesting alternative to the hand pulls, especially when the English sun shines!  The famous hobgoblin flavour is the same as is its strength of 4.5%.  Well worth a try.

Evening Dining


We only offer evening dining on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Wednesday between 5pm-8pm we offer a choice of 5 classic tea time favourites - a cheat from cooking at home mid week!  Thursday between 5pm-9pm is mainly authentic Thai but with a selection of our English main courses.  We cook the food fresh to order, so to avoid delays, or to ensure we can fit you in, we do advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
