Never again

On the first day of our stay at the Malt Shovel, we were just falling off to sleep late afternoon after a long journey and were awoken by a chambermaid entering the room to bring in clean towels but that was nothing compared to the second night when we were awoken at 3am by another female guest screaming and shouting at the top of her voice and using vile and filthy language with presumably her partner.

This went on for a good quarter of an hour, when eventually the police arrived and stayed til 5.30 in the morning and arrested the boyfriend on a charge of assault and criminal damage. Its the worst night I've had at any hotel I've stayed at, though did feel sorry for the proprietors.

Made me feel at home

Arriving in the darkness the lit up pub and hotel were a welcome sight in the dark December night.just trust your sat nav as the dark narrow lane gives no hint in the darkness of this jewel of a inn it has on it.

I can whole heartedly recommend the Malt Shovel. I stay in hotels all over the UK and abroad. They do not give you the warmth of welcome and friendliness found here. The room was warm and spotless - large comfy bed. Large safe car park to rear

The food was excellent both evening meal and the full English breakfast. The beers are very well kept.

Open log fires and a very friendly resident Labrador dog .

I will definitely stay here again.

Pleasant weekend

The room was clean and tidy albeit cold but warmed up nicely with the heating on.

Food in the pub was lovely with good portion and a reasonably priced bottle of wine. Breakfast was tasty and cooked well. On return to the room that evening there were no glasses. In the evening we were asked what time we would have breakfast as we were the only couple staying there that night. The next morning no one was around and we waited and finally got hold of the publican who made no apology for their lateness.

Great place and very accommodating staff

I'm very glad I stayed here, the bar and breakfast were amazing and the staff were very friendly, overall there was a very warm atmosphere.

The room itself was pretty good, we had a little trouble getting the temperature right on the convection heaters but other than that it was everything you could ask for.
