Welcome to the Malt Shovel Pub, Restaurant and Function Room in Ashby. They call us the country pub in the town because, whilst we’are situated in the heart of Ashby centre, we have a lovely homely feel.
We have a warm and welcoming atmosphere, that makes you feel as if you are spending some time away from the hustle and bustle of the centre.
Whether you are looking to enjoy a relaxing drink with some friendly locals, or a wonderful home cooked meal, we offer the perfect setting! We have a large dining area, that offers comfortable seating to all of our customers, as well as a light and spacious conservatory dining area, excellent for when the sun comes out!
Our well stocked bar has something for everyone, including a choice from 7 real ales such as Exmoor Gold and Tom Wood’s.
Our delicious, home-made menu is all freshly cooked to order, using the best locally sourced produce.
Our main menu and special’s board change frequently, so there is always plenty for you to choose from!
We can cater also for small functions, whether it is birthdays, christenings, wakes, work or retirement parties. We can cater for up to 32 people for a sit down function or 40 for a buffet based function.
We have a variety of events going on at The Malt Shovel, from quiz nights to live music. We look forward to seeing you soon!
