Currently sat waiting for dessert after my other half had just ordered the nicest curry either of us has ever had! It was a ‘Special’ and was called Chicken and Sweet Potato Massaman Curry. We loved it that much that we asked the waitress if the chef would give us the recipe (expecting a no) we were pleasantly surprised when the waitress came back with a piece of paper that the chef had written out the recipe out on! Will definitely be making this at home! Thanks for the great customer service! :)

We visited the Malt Shovel tonight with a group of friends for a birthday meal. Food was appalling. Sausages were over cooked as if they had been cooked several times over. The steak pie was very very salty and the crust was also old. The veg was soggy and tasteless. The fried fish was swimming in grease. The only thing saltier than the pie was the landlord attitude! The pub was very dark and dingy. The ladies toilet was absolutely filthy and very unhygienic. We will not visit ever again!

Would not reccomend at all... can't comment on the food as we was given a refund before the meals arrived. Very rude staff and even worse landlord and landlady.

Took the family for a meal today.it says child friendly. I beg to differ, when we got our meal it was barely warm and took over half an hour to get the food.when l complained to the manager (who was very scruffily dressed)he just shrugged his shoulders and walked off.i got the impression he only cares about the locals.
