MAY BANK HOLIDAY 25TH - 28TH - MINI ALE FESTIVAL
Come and join us for our mini ale festival over the May bank holiday which will start on the Friday, featuring ales from Daleside Brewery, Purity Brewery, Ossett Brewery, West Berkshire Brewery and The Rat Brewery amongst others. We will have our DJ on the Saturday night and on Sunday we will have two live music acts at 3pm and 7pm.
LETS JUST HOPE THE WEATHER IS GOOD!!
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!
WEDNESDAY EVENING DINING
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.
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.
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.
We love to embrace technology, so we now have a mobile phone signal booster giving you a signal inside the Malt Shovel for the first time ever!
